I'm sensing another "Do you think this beer is infected?" thread...

"So I brewed my latest batch of homebrew yesterday, and today I was at work, when I get this call from the Colorado Spring FD about having to come to my house to set up ventilation for a possible gas leak, and my neighbors having to be evacuated. Later they tell me they think the smells are coming from my carboy! Should I dump it?"

Exactly what I was thinking. Lots of yeasts put out nasty sulphurous
odors (Apfelwein, anyone?) I'm sure this could easily build up in a small apartment quickly.

Only if you stress the yeast, or use Montrachet, which seems to like to produce noxious fumes no matter how nicely you coddle it with yeast nutrients and other treats.
