I have a bad case of the sulfur smell. Fermentation has just stopped a few hours ago. I have a paint mixer, should I degas it with this or should I force carb then degas? or try both?

I would either let it sit under airlock for a week, or degas and smell it. If sulfur is still there you can always force carb and it to scrub the sulfur out, or leave it under airlock.

I bet your ferment temp was a bit low - that caused more sulfur on my first batch of this (68 ferment in the beginning). Ever since I dialed up to 72-73F for hte ferment I am not getting any sulfur stink, and a very clean smelling ferment.

My pee is finally fully carbed and clear. It takes a long time sitting in the keg to get there but it was worth it because it tastes much better now. I was drinking it last night with muddled mint leaves in a full glass of ice. It is very refreshing in this heat.

Have you tried it with mint? We were making mojitos the other day and I thought I would try the mint with the pee. It's really good. I think I better start another batch next week.

Mmm, mint sounds great.... think it would be worth trying a mint leaf "dry hop" with this stuff???

That is a fantastic idea - I will have to give it a go. Do you just crush up mint leaves and toss in? I knew we should have put some mint leaves in our herb garden...!

I'm not sure if the right term is "muddled" or not. I used 3 leaves and tore them into pieces and then used one of those wooden tools used to muddle limes and mint for mojitos and mashed them up in a pint glass before adding ice and pee. I would normally use more mint but our mint plant isn't very big yet and I didn't want to strip it clean already.
