I am knew to this and trying to figure out how to use this forum, but need some help. I have 2 4yo litter mates (male). I bathed one of them this morning and ever since the second brother is hissing and growling at the other. This is a new behavior and I’m at a loss as to what to do. Current the one that had the bath is held up under the couch while the other is keeping a close eye out for him. They have always gotten along in the past. What to do?

It's because one of them smells different. Put a drop of vanilla flavoring on the back of their necks and near their bum (because that's where they sniff). Then take a towel and rub it all over one cat and then the other so they smell the same. It might take a couple days, but they'll get back to normal.

Give the brother a bath too, then they will smell the same.
