Wondering if anyone could help me. I am brewing Northern Brewer's Lefse Blonde which is a Leffe clone and uses Wyeast Abbey II yeast.
I sat on it for a while and so from the date on the packet Mr. Malty told me I need a big-ass starter which I made. I pitched my starter into the carboy and fermentation took off within 8 hours.
Then, fermentation took off some more and went bat-**** crazy necessitating hasty installation of a blow off tube last night.
I checked on things this morning and my closet smells like Satan's jockstrap. I think the aroma is sulfurous/rotten egg.
1) is this normal for this yeast?
2) will it go away eventually without affecting flavor
3) will all my clothes in the closet smell like ass?
Oh, and my starter seemed fine and did not smell bad (just a bit yeasty/bready)
Temperature is a little high - around 72 right now (hard to control for me)
Thanks in advance!
