Default Which brew gods do you have to pay homage to for a smooth brew day???

So apparently I'm not doing something right. It seems that every time I brew, something happens that was totally unexpected that throws a wrench in things... to the point that it doesn't ruin the batch, but throws a wrench in things enough to make it a 'not so smooth' brew day.

Most of the time it's something like a leaky seal on a fitting, etc... this time, while in the middle of running the wort through the plate chiller, my well pump decided it didn't want to work anymore. After running around like a maniac for about two hours, I was able to get it fixed, and in the meantime I used my neighbor's water to finish the chill... so no real harm done... but come on!

Let me know I'm not alone here!

I make regular sacrifices of young cheese sandwiches to Trubdor, as he favors us bearded folk with clear beers devoid of off flavors.

I pay homage to Barlian, the barley god. I sprinkle a pinch of malt on the ground for him before I mash. Additionally, he was kind enough to bless me with a Mashcot, a Thermo-Scientific rubber duck. We call him Thermy, he helps to regular the mash temperature and ward off evil spirits.

By the way, I almost spit my beer out laughing at Trubdor. That tickled me pink!

I make sacrifices in the form of time and preparation to Murphy. For we all know his law!

How about just a prayer to the real one? Works for me.

If you ever findd the right god to sacrafice to let us all know, there is no perfect brewday, something always inevitably goes wrong.

The only difference is whether it is a big thing or something trivial.
