But seriously, I usually brew real early in the morning (early like I'm mashing in by 06:00 usually), and that amazing cereal mash smell does blend well with coffee and the early morning calm...

I dumped my spent hops in the stinky kitchen garbage can last night and left it. Now I find myself sniffing my garbage every 10 minutes because it smells amazing!!!

Note to self... spent hops makes a good deodorizer!
