Got this going on Sunday and is bubbling away nicely. I noticed this morning that there's a slight eggy smell? The first couple if days just smelt like wine but like i said,this morning there was also a slight egg smell. I'm guessing this isn't normal?
Cheers

Did you add nutrient? When the yeast is stressed sometimes produces hydrogen sulphide, add a tsp of nutrient. Otherwise might be infected, but this early in ferment probably stressed yeast.

I have made many gallons of this wine and didn't notice the egg smell, the yeast sachet may have contained nutrient i have never added extra, let it finish and see how it turns out.

Cheers, ill leave it and see how it goes. Just got home from work and there's still a slight eggy smell. The airlock is constantly bubbling away so there's lots of activity. The only other thing I can think of is maybe I didn't clean my fv well enough after my last ipa brew!?

Was the date on kit near use by date? The yeast might be old hence stressed, I'm old and stressed and have an egg smell after a curry lol , a little nutrient if you have some might help. Alternatively, if any yeast remained from your previous ipa brew, then this yeast would definitely be stressed and contribute to the eggy smell.

Its been in for 8 days now and all activity seems to have stopped.
So I had a taste and all seems good .
I took an initial reading which was 1.096 and a final reading today that was 0.996 so I'm getting that at just over 13% which is fine by me
I've added the finings and done everything the instructions suggest but I'm unsure if I should leave to clear at the same temp it fermented at (22 degrees) or to turn off the heat?

Thanks
Gaz

Good to hear that the eggy has gone, must have hatched and flown off...lol

Turn the heat off, save a few pennies Warmth not going to help if you've stopped it fermenting.

I found it benefits from a couple of weeks in the bottles you may be pleasantly surprised.
