Default Bad smell!?!?

I'm brewing my second ever batch of hard cider and it has a strong bad smell. Is it suppose to smell that way? My first batch didn't smell at all.

If it smells like eggs or sulfur, totally normal. (rhino farts, see above) If it smells like old tube socks...you might have additional issues. Can you describe the smell a little more? Also how far along into primary fermentation are you?

Don't sweat it, it'll go away in a day or 2. Totally normal.
