If it is an infection, be sure to clean the fermenter very well (like soaking overnight in PBW, then rinse then soak in star San solution) before using again!  And also your tubing, racking cane and anything else that came in contact with that batch!

Also, make certain that you're not scratching your equipment as you clean.  Don't get all crazy with the scrubbing and abrasives, since cracks and scratches can harbor bacteria.  Just give it a good soak and clean with a soft cloth or your bare hands as needed.
