Read threads under Rhino Farts. The sulfur smell is a byproduct of the fermentation. Sorry if this had already been stated. My ciders usually smell like sulfur early in ferment but the smell disappears after racking and aging. Good luck!

Well the cider I've got going is doing well. I've been wondering about pasteurizing though. How much alcohol is lost doing that? And does it affect the flavor at all? I would be using a plate chiller.

If you are using stovetop pasteurization in the shouldn't lose anything.
