I've never made a single mistake ever in brewing. Ever.

Well I made it through the day and its fermenting now. I still can't believe I did that. I had no idea why my pump wasn't working and so I disconnect the hoses and grain comes falling out of the hoses and pump. I was so close to chucking the whole thing, HLT and all, into the woods. Eh, that's what I get for taking the winter off from brewing.

Well how about this one..... during a 60 min 5 gal boil I thought everything was good to go so I left the boil and went into the house...long story short.... I fell asleep and 3 hours later I woke up and realized I had wort boiling but... when I went out to check my mistake there was no wort left in the kettle due to boil overs and ended up boiling it dry.....Now that really sucked and it was a lesson well learned!

Alright, not as bad as what you guys have been through but the hose on the chiller melted and broke while SWMBO was helping me grill while brewing. Full pressure hot water sprayed her and she ran and fell breaking her nose!! So I brewed last night and fell ill (stomach bug) while chilling the wort. I cooled, racked and pitched. I didn't have the energy after the shizznits to clean up 10lbs of wet mash and a pan of trub. I got the phone call this afternoon that the whole house smells like body odor mixed with vomit. She also informed me that she must have the bug (shizznits). She was right, that mash stunk to high heaven and I promptly cleaned it up after I told her to put it on the porch. Lesson learned!!! Get through it and clean up or you will pay dearly. First time, last time. I am one popular guy right now, yee haw

Did you have hardwood floors around, and do you have a cousin in Mass. who also had a (leaking) salt water tank at his former house :-)

If yes on the cousin part, I own his former dining room, and salt-saturated hardwood floor... and haven't figured out yet how to fix it.
