It was still there in a very small quantity 2 weeks ago. I said screw it, chucked in some clean copper....smell gone in a few hours. Kegged it and the batch is delicious.

For ****s and giggles I even bottled a 12 pack when I noticed the stink bad 2.5 months ago. Well as a little experiment I tossed a 6 pack into the dishwasher and ran a cycle 1 day after bottling. Apparently the heat pasteurization worked like a charm cuz the heated ones are perfectly still yet the non-heated have about 3 volumes of CO2. Cool experiment but I kinda got lucky. I just force carbed the rest.

I just blew off the sulphur smell with co2. Worked like a charm. Good trick to keep in the back pocket and save a batch.
