Fermentation in soup

I have made vegetable soup and now there are bubbles coming to the top of the pan. This was a basic vegetable soup with cabbage, potatoes, carrots, celery, lima beans, onions, beef broth and onions. Soup was made twice with the same results. We used a 24 qt chefs stock pot. We moved the soup from a hot to a cold burner and left sit to cool from 8:00 pm until 7:00am the next morning. We were just about to place it in freezer containers when we noticed air bubbles coming to the top of the pan. Also, it smelled. What did we do wrong?

Did you wash all vegetables thoroughly before prepping? It's possible airborne yeasts may have affected the mixture. Otherwise, I don't know.

You enabled rapid bacteria growth by leaving the soup in the temperature danger zone for almost half a day! The soup has spoiled and should not be eaten.

What you should have done is remove it from the pot and pour it into hotel pans or similar and moved it to the fridge immediately so it would cool rapidly.

Cabbage will ferment as it breaks down and releases sulfurous compounds (stinky gas).

Andy is correct ecwink. Were you cooling it for future storage and didn't want to overwhelm your fridge? Were you hoping to can it?

Yes, it's true about the bacteria etc causing the smell BUT as far as air bubbles themselves (non-smelly ones), it's very common to have air bubbles in soup and should be removed with a ladle or sieve.
