Yeah I hope the aroma from the package is not indicative of the final product...

Don't want to derail so I can start a new thread if necessary...Couldn't you make a simple starter (or a shaken-not-stirred starter) and see what happens?
I used gelatin in the fermenter a few days ago when I normally throw it in while transferring to the keg. I forgot that I was planning on pitching a new batch onto that yeast. Is that a bad idea? I've got some dry yeast around if necessary.
I did use a starter and I can take readings. What should I be looking for?
Just send the Galaxy to me. I have never used it.
You need to get some. Very tropical and tasty !
EDIT - They're a little dank and resiny, too. Good stuff.
I tasted a gravity sample last night. This is actually turning out better than I thought, I wasn't expecting to get it right the first time but maybe I will. There is nice bright, fresh citrus aroma and flavor without it being perfumy, which I had been fearing because the lime leaves have such a strong aroma. I need the yeast cake for an IPA I'm brewing tonight so I'm going to rack over a little more cascade and a tiny bit more lime leaf then bottle this weekend. That should insure a fresh aroma.
