I sampled the final product last night. It was horrible. As some of you predicted, it had a woody taste. It is how I imagine the taste of the hickory blocks we use on the smoker. On the upside, it did not poison me. It is not a total loss. It was good practice making an extract brew. Today, a group of us are getting together to brew Irish Stout (Brewer's Best Kit) and Hard Lemonade (a recipe from a homebrewer forum).
Thanks to all of you that offered input.
