It still smells just like it did before this came along. No smell of vinegar.
So my question is now. How do I proceed. I was planning
on serving this at a party. If i transfer to keg and cold crash will that inhibit anymore growth?
I have never had an infection before sorry if these are noob questions.
If it is acetobacter, which I still think it is (though most likely it didn't travel alone), then the vinegar will take a long time to become noticeable. Most likely weeks or months. Luckily, getting it out of the presence of oxygen will stop the acetobacter growth and the vinegar will cease to be a problem.
Other critters such as Brett, pedio and lacto will still creep along but as Mort says, it's may very well just add to the interesting factor. Chilling will also help slow any other microbiological growth.
If it smells good and tastes good I wouldn't worry about it.
