comment What makes my mash tun smell like vomit?
I would have assumed that :-) I am more wondering, Which microbe is causing that smell. It's very distinct. I agree clean equipment is happy equipment. Luckily, it was the mash tun, all the wort that touches it, is later sanitized during the boil.

All of the lactobacillus in the malt would have been killed during mashing and sparging, pasteurization temperatures. To sour a mash you have to add fresh malt after the mash has cooled down quite a bit. I add it at about 110F.
