Doing a white claw hard seltzer for first time. Getting a strong surfer smell after one week in fermenter. Is this normal?
I'm assuming you mean a coconut sunscreen smell
sulfur smell is Common with multiple yeast. Generally nothing to worry about. Will fade.
Yes coconut sunscreen mixed with a fart🤣
Well I've never made seltzer but wine fermentation smells, cider as well so I'm not surprised
It’s from the yeast having a lack of nutrients, as well as no other ingredients to hide this aroma. I assume you’re adding nutrients?Bottling or kegging? If it persists you’ll need to bubble CO2 through it to vent off the sulfur.
Added 2 1/2 tsp. To 5 gal. Brew day. It didn’t do much. After a week I have added 1/2 tsp. For the next 3 days and gave it a slight swirl. It has been fermenting steadily since but still has slight sulfur smell. I will be bottling it.
