OK, here's the deal. I need advice in the next 30 minutes as I am in the middle of a brew. I am doing an extract brew with 11 lbs. of malt. I started with 1.5 gallons of water in a 5-gallon brewpot.
I can't even get the wort to boil before the foam heads for the top and I have to shut the burner off.
What I don't need to hear is that my pot is too small - that's become very obvious - lesson learned. HOWEVER, I want to save this brew. I've been altering the heat on and off, but I don't leave the heat on for more than 30 seconds before the foam starts moving on up. How in the hell do I boil my way out of this mess? Any ideas? Or am I SOL? Thanks.
