Default Why does the peach must smell so bad?

Did my first racking on my peach wine. Dang, it smells awful.

Quite awhile ago I did peach, mango, strawberry and pineapple (frozen fruit) and it had the same awful smell. But the latest racking it smelled wonderful. I am so glad I did not pitch it out because I sure was tempted!

Some musts/yeast combos produce a lot of So2. So you get a rotten egg/sulfery smell. This is a sign of stressed yeast often. Did you use yeast nutrient & energizer like DAP, nutriferm advanced, fermaid-k......? Also degassing or oxygenating up to the 1/3 sugar break helps a lot. With time and racking it should dissipate.

Yes I used all of the above. It is not rotten egg/sulfur smell. I know those smells. This far worst then that
