Vinegar smell when Baking

May 26, 2011 - 2:43pm -- JimmyK

My yeast breads while baking in the oven have a "Vinegar" smell.  the yeast is about 8 months old and always kept in the frig, the flour has not expired (according to the best used by date), the sugar and salt is relatively new and the final taste is always great.  But what of this Vinegar smell?  Anyone have an idea.  Thanks
