Hope I didn't over do it. I recently started a fermentation of a recipe I modeled on a strong European ale. Five gallon batch with 1 ounce of Cascade for the full 60 minute boil and .5 ounce of Eureka for the last 15 minutes. Both pellet. As with previous sessions I expected the nice 'bready' smell of fermentation from the bubbler. Instead their was a strong hops aroma. Not unpleasant, but as a newbie, I wonder if you guys ever experienced it.

Brewed a saison with mandarina barvaria and I tried a sample a week into fermentation and bitterness was just off the charts. Skip ahead a few weeks, I had about 6 pints of it yesterday and it quite tasty. Just let it do it's thing and it'll be fine.
