Well, keg, fridge, CO2 are all here. It's a used keg, so I'm soaking it tonight and will keg it tomorrow. It will be a total of 15 days on the hops...I'm coming to grips with the "earthiness" I may attain, but I'll update ASAP

A lot of the hop aroma may be gone/faded after 15 days. I don't keg, but have heard of people adding dry hops to their keg. Might want to toss an extra ounce to the keg to give it some fresh "punch". Hopefully another kegging home brewer can give you instructions, if any are needed.

Congrats on the awesome wife.

Not a bad idea! I'll sample it before I keg and see where it is.

I give it a B+, but not due to the hops. Seems to be no ill effects or grassiness from the extra couple of days. I do LOVE Cascade hopes though.
