Started out this morning with a 10 gal batch of, Hex nut brown ale clone from Midwest in mind.
Got the HLT up to temp, grain was all ground and awaiting the hot water. Transfer the hot water to the MLT. Grab the thermometer from the HLT and go to put it into the MLT and, tink!!! The thermometer breaks and hundreds of little lead balls go into my MLT!!!
Needless to say,... there was some cussin'. I had to RDWHAHB. Got out another grain/hop bill. Now I have some Moose Drool, in the fermenter.
