    I hope I didn't over do it. The five gallon partial grain recipe I wrote is based on a strong European ale style. 1 ounce of pellet Cascade for the full boil and .5 ounce Eureka for the last 15 minutes. Like in previous sessions, I expected a nice 'bready' aroma. Instead there is a strong hop aroma coming from the bubbler along with the scent from fermentation. Its not unpleasant, but I hope it will be drinkable. Anybody else experience this? If so, what was your brew like?
