Bad Smell on grape juice/wine

Postby bsteaves@yahoo.com » Sat Nov 30, 2013 1:06 am

Hello:
My last attempt, the bottle had a bad smell of rotten eggs - just slightly.
Taste was good. I attempted to persere it by adding 1/16 tsp. of Sodium Metesulphite.
Transferring it to a glass bottle and refrigeration, the smell
dissipated to just barely noticeable. Was it the plastic bottle?

I don't think it was the plastic bottle. Did the grape juice have any additives?

Probably, it was store bought grape juice.

Sometimes grape juice has preservatives in them that slow the initial fermentation and that can add off aromas. Also, very high alcohol drinks sometimes produce aromas from all the additional yeast activity. Usually letting a fine EZ Capped wine like that "breathe" before drinking is all that is necessary.
