Hops smelled SO good! I think this is gonna be a good one. I hope anyway. LOL. Didint record it, though. Had a friend who had never had home-brew over. He left a little over served...LOL. He stuck with it for the whole 3-4 hours, though. They just left (its 3:10am here...). I think he will be our next homebrewer. Hes already talking about wanting to do one.
It has been a GOOD night.
