I Have Bugs

Back in June, I attended the NHC and listened to Vinnie Cilurzo's talk about sour beers. One of the things Vinnie said was to have two of everything when brewing sour beers: two fermenters, two sets of hoses, two airlocks, yada yada yada. I ignored every bit of that advice when I brewed my latest Kentucky Common and fermented it in my brand new stainless steel conical.

My next batch was a vanilla porter kit from Austin Homebrew. I sanitized the fermenter, then poured my new beer into it. I kegged it the other day. It was sour. I got bugs.

Anyone know a safe way to kill brett in a conical?
