Ok, last night I started 10 gallons of your apfelwein and tonight they are going strong. But one of the bottles, the brand new better bottle that I JUST got in the mail from AHS, stinks!!! It smells like rotten eggs....do I need to dump it?? I cleaned everything with no rinse cleaner, it's never given me a problem before. But this thing is making my apartment stink.

Any ideas???

This seems to be pretty normal. For me, it lasts a couple of days.

Leave it alone. This stuff stinks while it ferments.

Behold! The rhino fart!



Apfelwein and Kolsch fermentation do that, no worries.

My girlfriend is PISSED, how long can I tell her this beautiful aroma will last? A few more days, or 2-3 weeks?


Thanks!

Few days to a week. If the other one does not stink though, it is lagging behind and will catch up soon

Well if anything, this worrying of odor should be put in Edworts FAQ for this stuff!

Have you tried telling her "whoever smelt it dealt it"?

Edit: And sulfur smells are just the byproducts of some yeast types. Don't tell her that though, go with my first suggestion.
