Hate to be "that guy" but 72.4°F, (was that ambient or wort/stick on fermometer temp?) is

old feeding fre...

I started a batch Thursday night, I put it in the primary with OG 1.030 it now (36 hours later)

Don't believe that for a nanosecond. Either your nose is hyper sensitive, or you're smelling
something else there.BTW, OG of 1.030 to FG of 1.005 will give you 3.3% ABV. Use this site to
