Started out smelling really good. Nice hoppy wiffs coming from airlock. But today they smell weird, and a little nasty. I guess if I could sum it up, almost sour/spoiled smelling.

I know it's way to early, but could it be a possible infection? All my other brews smelled good compared to this one...and yes I'm a sniffer!
Way too early to be worried. And if it is infected, there is nothing to be done about it now. Let it finish and give it time. Hope it turns out great!
