I did indeed. I forgot about the spray bottle method. Thanks.
I'm a little disappointed with myself though. I jumped into all grain very fast and bought a 24qt pot. So I am stuck with boil-overs and low post boil volumes.
This batch is 4 galllons.
So I now need a new 28qt or 30qt pot. Everytime I think I'm done buying stuff for this hobby I find an issue. If I do get a new large pot, what am I going to do with a 24qt aluminum kettle with a 7/8" hole drilled in it?
I guess I can try a less vigorous boil or get a lid to help retain some volume.
Aren't lids a bad idea? I read somewhere that certain unfavorable flavor compounds boil off during the boil. Will the lid keep them in the wort?
