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
WOW..........Broke Her Nose!!!!!!! I'm surprised your allowed to brew after that one.......

Let's see I haven't had hugh mistakes I guess such as these. I still watch everything like a hawk.......

My biggest problem is trying to pour water from cleaning kettles, buckets, & sanitize tubs into the sink.......I seem always to overflow and have to take all my liquior stuff off bar/counter and clean up water mess......At least 5 times every brew day.

Oh I threw a yeast cake/trub on the dog the other day as it was dark and I didn't know he was there...Seems he has grown to love brew days as he likes to eat the spent grains so if he thinks I'm brewing he is always lurking.....

A common thread I am seeing in all of this is the "and then I walked away" part . . . .

I was using the immersion wort chiller and then I walked away . . . . which is when the clamp holding the hose to the nozzle came undone, spewing water into the wort.

With a 15 gallon MLT, I've been no-sparging. This leaves some sugars in the grain, so I partigyle for a couple gallon batch of free session beer. Don't know where my head was this past Sunday. (Could it have been large quantities of beer and painkillers [Vicodin] from recent knee surgery?)

The HLT is graduated in gallons, but I do my brewsheet in quarts. It wasn’t until the MLT was almost full that I realized I was trying to put in 10 gallons instead of 10 quarts.
