I made a porter, which tasted exactly as I wanted after the primary was finished. Sanitized everything, bottled, waited 2 weeks, cracked one open, and the beer tastes completely different than before I bottled. It has a sour/cidery taste.

I used Wyeast 1187. Is this just due to the yeast? Or did I get an infection via my bottling equipment? I hadent brewed in around 2 years so maybe some wild yeast or bacteria got into the bottling bucket spigot or racking cane?

Sour...I would bet an infection. Give your bottles another week or 2 and taste again. If you have an infection that sour taste will likely get much stronger.
