      Picture the nasty smell of vinegar mixed with rotten grains. It is a
      very stong, very nasty smell. One of the best ways to prevent an
      infected batch, is to clean all of your fernenting equipment very well,
      whether you use soap and water, or bleach water. Also, by boiling your
      mash, to kill any bacteria that might be in the products you are
      fermenting. Some people even recommend adding a little lemon juice to
      the air lock. Just my little bit of advice.
