Yeah, you can get some pretty funky smells off the fermentation. It's perfectly normal.

mmmmm farts.

The whole brewing process can get stinky, even AFTER you've drunk your brew! Personally I love it!

Yeast farts - better than me farts.
Different yeasts seem to be worse than others. SWMBO won't allow certain Belgians back in the house.

If you think it smells bad now, just wait until you get the homebrew rhino farts.
