I kept the fermenter and as stated it is a 7.9 gallon Speidel fermenter and I cleaned it and its got a good brew going in it right now, no issues, and I know its not scratched its brand new, I just didn't use star san the first time that I used it. Hence where the infection came from I'm almost 100% sure.

Well there's yer problem. :D

There's always a learning curve with any new equipment. Glad you're back on the horse.

The latest brew in it is bubbling away right now so I know it's fermenting well enough. My other fermenter doesn't bubble it's a bucket fermenter but it never has let me down so I'm sure it's just a bit of a seal issue. Have had a Muntons kit in that one for testing. Using Muntons yeast I had lying around. I used 2 packets of yeast which should be enough I under filled by a gallon to get a bit more of a body in the beer.
