Looks like you’ve got the right stuff. So here’s what I’m getting. You’ve been doing it this way without any problems until now on this 5th and final coat something happened. You’re saying that you didn’t change anything at all except the can which is the same stuff and is controlled nicely and I agree, by minwax. Is it possible that there was condensation on the board when you went to put the second coat on? Honestly, it looks like an oil and water mix problem, especially if your saying that the temperature was no different on the second coat than on the first. Does the whole door look like this or only part of it? Do you thin it at all with anything? What we have to get at is if there were any changes from the 4th coat to the 5th coat that would have caused the problem. It seems easy, but only you will be able to determine what the difference is. The only other option would be that some one snuck in your shop and sabatoged the work or the new can of minwax is just plain bad. Did you stir up the new can really well before using? A wet brush could also be an issue but would only be a problem for the first couple swipes as the water would thin itself out in a hurry on your brush strokes and eventually not be a problem. In other words it would get better as you went.

Soap residue could definitely cause the issue. Try a new clean brush or heck just wipe some on with a clean cloth and see if the same thing happens.
