This is our first attempt at wine! We started with 30 lbs of concord grapes off of our vine on 9/9/07 with a sg of 1.082. On 9/16 the sg was down to 1.002, so we transfered it to a 6 gal carboy, and topped it off with about 2 qt water. Yesterday we racked it into another carboy and noticed a very heavy sulfur smell and taste. Should we add something or keep racking or ???...Are we doing something wrong?

Thanks for the help. Dale

Dale, see my post under the general wine making discussion. Look for the thread Bad Smell. It may help you.
