So, I was boiling up a batch of wort the other day, my first all grain batch and my first with the crappy chiller I made. I had cleaned the pipe out earlier wit star san and there was still water inside it. You know where this is going... That's right, I put it in the boil with the water still inside, and it boiled over and spouted out the end and dripped down straight into the flame, thusly extinguishing it.
The flame went out and I, well, ended the boil early. I didn't realize it, but there was actually quite a bit of wort left in the burner. In the cup of the burner, if you know what I mean. It took me a week to figure this out (dark basement), and now my question is, how do I clean this out? I don't see too much residue. Will this burner rust? Anytime there's propane involved I'm a little nervous.
