I bottled tonight and the gunk at the bottom smelled like hops and little nasty.

Bottling day is certainly not a glorious day. It usually looks fairly nasty. The smell? Hmmm… I can't say I've had one that smelled nasty though.

I guess you'll see in a month or so… But even if it's not quite right time may help it so don't dump it. Try one every week or two, and maybe even a more extended time inn the fridge may be helpful too.
