If any of you used Wyeast #2206 (Bavarian Lager) recently and had
infection problems, please contact me. I believe that a packet I used
recently (December 1989 date code) was bad, but I would like more
evidence.

It was a very serious bacterial infection which produced a strong
sulphery oder, much like 2-tube epoxy glue. (Yuck!)

Luckily, I noticed the infection in the yeast starter *before* I
pitched it into my hard-won wort, so I was able to keep from ruining
my brew.
