My 5 gallons of fresh/un-pasteurized juice and EC-1118 started off great. Two days ago a decidedly vinegar-like odor showed up. Now it's going away. Is that odor known to just show up some times and then go away?

Forget vinegar....It's called Rhino farts. Dont' worry about it...and don't sniff it. Ignore that carboy for another 40 days and you will be a happy camper.

If it's truely turning to vinegar, the smell won't go away, it will get much stronger. BK is right, just leave it be and it will turn into something awesome.
