Does it smell bad?popped it open for a sniff- smells like acetone to me.....stings the
nostrils....but in a good way (Anchorman). But seriously, it smells like a solvent to me. Guess

....sitting in the basement. The air-lock had dried up. Like I say, it's been sitting in the
primary for at least 1 year. No good anymore? Opened it briefly, and should post a pic, but it

thanks guys. Yea, for sure molasses wine was not the best idea. I guess that's why it has been
