Took the fall of from brewing to drink up some of my stash. My first brew back a delicous smelling esb. Everthing went great until it came time to chill the wort. Hooked up the immersion chiller and was chilling my wort and all of the sudden i hear the tinkle of little balls hitting the bottom of my pot. UGH!!! I forgot to remove my thermometer floating in my wort. Oh well just wanted to vent. I hate it when a good batch of beer has to go down the drain.
