Started Bock

just started first lager, NB Bock, first off it is boiling right now and smells straight up like banana bread is this supposed to smell like that. secondly I have never smelled german perle hops before, when i opened pack, they did not smell real strong, almost had a hint of sweet, is this right or are these old hops, thanks ya ll

Old hops smell cheesy.

no cheese smell, i was worried cause i got the grain and hops through another source cause northernbrewer quit carrying the bock kit
