my cider hasnt produced any "fart like" smells. The gas it gives off is sort of apple-like.

I've had batches that do and don't... and I think the main difference in that the fart-less bactches there was yeast nutrient was added

I havent had any significant sulfur production from my keg batches since I stopped using k-meta. I dont use nutrient. I've had a couple of experimental batches get a little sulfury - right now the WY2001 is a bit stinky. IMHO, if the yeast produces more than a very small amount of sulfur with your juice, switch to something else - there are plenty of yeasts that wont reek up your brew cellar. I know it usually blows off, but it doesnt exactly inspire confidence when friends check out the brew cellar and it smells like rotten eggs.

Canonball and Piazzon12 - what types of yeast are you using?

I always blame the rhino fart smell on something fermenting or the dog....

two weeks ago I started a batch with fresh S04 and got the rhino farts. This week I have another batch going, same type of juice, that I pitched yeast cake from the first batch into. No farts. Its exactly the same yeast strain, same juice, both did not have nutrient. Difference is slight change in temp, this one is going cooler, and thus slower....its only a difference of 5 degrees...

My batch with D47 smells like a matchstick factory. Not so the batch with 1116. Both had K-meta added in equal amounts right after pressing.
