You mean "that smell that's all around you--ouuu"?

(Sorry couldn't resist)

"Cant-cha smell that smell"?

"Oooh that smell"

Heh I did the same thing, ordered 24 pounds of wildflower honey (I want 15 or so, they come in increments of 12, and I have no real sugar here so I can either sweeten my tea with DME or honey).

Heck, don't even think of making an apple cider with this yeast then. The rhino farts from that mix will get you to work at 3-AM "just cause" you can't can't stand the smell in your apartment. Of course don't tell your co-workers that or you will not be able to keep them from "just dropping by" a few months later.
