Swell smells

So, it's been bubbling pretty good for about 48 hours. It's finally taking it easy and bubbling at a pretty even clip now. I'm going to put on the bubbler airlock as soon as I get a chance. But here's a weird thing.

It smells like yogurt.

I'm paging through the complete codex of "did I just ruin my beer" posts, and I'm not really seeing this one. Not yet. Ominous. Or not. I don't actually know.

Update: All these posts are like-- "yeah, you probably didn't ruin your beer. just cool your jets, newbie." So I'm done freaking out now.

  1. Yogurt?

    Like sour? Or like funky milk?

    I wonder if that's something from the Hazelnuts. Could be a wild yeast, too, but your populations will be low since you're new to all this. Hurry up and wait is probably the best strategy.
