I made a cider with fresh golden delicious apples. It has cleared up and fermented all the way out. It tastes very nice but smells like ass! Any ideas?
Cheers,
Rob

Sounds like Brettanomyces, did you add any sulfites or anything to knock this down before you fermented? I dont have much cider experience and have never seen this in my other wines but we always add KM to everything to keep weird stuff down.

Primary was about 10 days. I didn't add anything other than yeast.
