WLP300 - Hefeweizen (sulfur smell)

Postby bmock » Sun May 03, 2009 11:24 pm

Is there a thing such as too much sulfur coming from a yeast. After cleaning the primary and the blowoff jug, my entire house was filled with a very distinct sulfur smell.

It didn't seem to be in the taste, but I was kind of steeped in the stuff by then.

I had the same problem with a Belgian wit yeast, typical for these strains and while it smelled sulfury during fermentation and a while after kegging, there was no taste of it in the beer. Definitely had me worried for a while though. . .
