Was wondering if I have sours going and I sanitize my thrift after pulling a sample from a sour wit, is my bucket of starsan infected with bugs. I rinsed the thrift after pulling a sample

nope. If you star san gets infected it's not going to work anyway. It's designed to kill just those bugs afterall.

Always good to have an extra set of plastic ware (thief, racking stuff, buckets, bungs, airlocks, etc) for sours/brett'd beers.

I use duct tape or red permanent marker to mark the "sour" equipment.

BTW - lambic is fermenting away in primary. I didn't have time for slurry, but I probably could send you a bottle of unfinished (but fairly attenuated) beer that you could pitch straight into a batch or grow a starter from.
