Well, my little H2S problem got cleared up, now my Cyser is developing a slight rubbery smell.

Is it reduced sulphur compounds?

Possibly mercaptans?

SG is 1.022

OG was 1.150

Fermentation has definitely slowed but is still going pretty well.

The most important question is...

Should I wait and see if it blows out or splash rack over a copper scrunge pad now?
