Maybe I missed the discussion on this stuff, but anybody else notice the smell? Do they scrape this off the barn floor. Maybe it's just me

Doesn't smell any worse than Fermaid K to me. Neither one smells particularly good, but the smell goes away completely in the mead.

That's the smell of future wonderful.

Sent from my TARDIS at the restaurant at the end of the universe while eating Phil.

It reminds me of the smell of yeast hulls, which makes sense, since Fermaid O is composed of yeast or stuff extracted from yeast.

Yeah it's got some funkiness to it, but no worse than the Fermaid-K or DAP (cat pee) for that matter! It's basically lysed yeast minus the hulls, think Vegemite minus the salt. {Mmmm Vegemite!!, droooool...} I used to use boiled bread yeast & that smells WAY worse than Fermaid-O! The whole house reeked of the BBY for days, but it did make a great mead or five for me!

Just smells like vitamins to me. I almost enjoy the smell because my yeast will be so happy
