I'm doing a berliner weisse so i'm expecting some sour smell, but jesus this stuff is pungant. Any one have experience with this beer? I just racked to primary after week and an half. Can I expect it to mellow out

It would probably help if you specified which yeast you are using, since most likely it's the yeast responsible for the 'off putting smell'.

+1 Wolfy.

I just brewed a cream ale, wlp080 and it gives off a heavy sulfur smell for several days. Check your yeast specs out from their website.

Berliner weisse is the yeast. How'd your cream ale turn out deezy?

Brewing takes buddhist like patience. The more batches I do the better my patience has become tho. I wanted this batch to be done quick, but I gone let it be a little long in hopes to mellow out this smell

So how'd they turn out guys? Did the aroma mellow out? Green beer taste was great for me (today after 3 weeks in primary). Also my first time with this yeast, but I expected the smell after reading about WLP080, just curious if you get any of that aroma with the final product (I'm sure it depends on how well you filter/crash too)...
