So I just racked my first perry, which I posted about a couple of days ago, and I gotta say, it smells kinda funky. Not George Clinton funky, more like gym socks funky. Or farts. Something not good. Tastes ok, just has a not very pleasant odor about it. Question is - any chance it'll clear up, or is it a goner? Anything I can do to increase the chances of it turning out ok?
Started with ~70 lb pears to get 5 gallons fresh pressed pear juice. Added 5 campden tablets, let stand 48 h. Added 3 lb sugar dissolved in 1 qt water to get an O.G. of 1070, 5 tsp yeast nutrient and 1 package of Red Star yeast. Fermentation started within 24 h and was really cranking by 48. Three days later it stopped dead, checked FG a couple of days later and got 1000 and a funky smell. Racked it.
