The Third time is a charm. Those who have been following my foray into homebrewing know it has been very adventurous.
During the First Test Boil I didn’t have a wrench to get the ball valve tightened onto the pot. During the Second Test Boil I got said wrench but I had no clue about Teflon Tape to make sure seal was secure.
Well that being sad I got Teflon Tape and redid the ball valve attachment using it. Needless to say that was the trick that worked and feedback from fellow homebrewers was great in helping me to determine the problem.
This time I didn’t do a full water load because I just wanted to test the seal but I did try putting the pot across two burners, which I think works:
My second question is what’s the best way to clean the burnt water on the stove top after brewing? Anyone have tricks or tips to offer up?
They say, “Third time is the charm” and in my case it truly was. My adventures so far have been fun, educational and enlightening. They will continue and I will be ordering extra needed equipment and my first malt extract kit. I am excited and look forward to the challenges ahead and will continue to chronicle them as I move forward.
And that’s … From My Mellin!
