Default My Apfelwein smells like sulphur?

My first batch of Apfelwein (Thanks EdWort!) is 2 days out from pitching. I went down to the fermenting room and openned the door to what smells like Yellowstone or a bad yeast drinking session. Does it usually give off a strong sulphur smell when fermenting. Temp is 63F.

Yep. It'll subside in about 5 days. Montrachet yeast?

Montrachet Yeast is the winner. I am glad all is in working order! Thanks for the help.

I got a little bit of fermenting apple juice mixed with the rum in my airlock--combine that with the smells coming out of the rest of the carboy, and it stunk up my brew cellar so bad I couldn't go in for almost a week.
