GPG Keychain: Generated new key during install... where the F did it go??

Hi! I just installed GPGTools for MacOS X (El Capitan) and during the install it prompted me to create a new key. I did so, and I got a prompt about my passphrase being too simple, but I said “go ahead anyway, create the key”.
When the install was done, I tried to find my key that I had just created, and it was nowhere to be found. It’s not in the “GPG Keychain” window, and I did a search on the server for my key, and it did not find it (it DID find an old one, from 1997, when I had PGP installed on my Windows PC at an employer’s site)

Expected
I expected to see MY key in the keychain!
