So I am doing a Dunkelweizen. Mostly Wheat and Pilsner. I collected the liquid yesterday, and doing the boil today.
The wort, as it is heating up, smells horrible. It smells like a mash tun that wasn't washed well after the last use or grain after a day.
The wort has been sitting in a covered metal kettle for almost 20 hours. I am hoping this is the wreak of grain bits that got through and DMS, all of which will be saved by the boil. It doesn't smell like sweet beer juice like it normally does.
Has anyone ran into this issue? How did it turn out? I am just looking for some piece of mind. Thanks!
