Default 3068 stinks of sulphur

First time using WYEAST 3068. Brewing a honey weizen, fermenter stinks real bad. I know it's a by-product of the yeast.
Anyone else experienced this ?

Yep, I made a jefe and the blow off tube was like an exhaust pipe. Turned out a great beer

Hefe yeast stinks like rotten eggs !!! Sometimes it even tastes like it if you ferment too low of a temp.
