You know, I always think I've heard all the questions there are to ask, but then one like this surprises me.
What's more suprising is I went over to my yeast fridge and smelled my yeast sample of Pacman.
It smells like yeast. Not bad. Not anything except yeasty. Now, that's not a bottle cultured one, that is a purchased and washed yeast sample. But still, it shouldn't smell bad.
Does that help?
