I think you are correct. I fermented with fresh Cote des Blanc and yeast nutrient at the recommended rate. Still, the sulfur smell was overpowering after about 24 hours. So, I made this simple...

I agree. However, I'm hesitant to give away my great tasting beer (which I had intended to do) when it has a lousy presentation. The psychology of "no foam" will kill the great flavor for the average...
