Default Oh boy, may be the end of my brewing days...

This is not coming off. SWMBO will definitely make me stop brewing in the kitchen if I cannot get this clean.

Any suggestions?

Yep! Find a turkey fryer on clearance and move to the garage

As for the mess, sorry can help. You may be able to make up a spray bottle of PBW, spray it on, let it soak, and attack it with soft scrub and a brillo.

That or you could just buy her that new stove she has been wanting...

I would try easy-off oven cleaner on it. Spray a healthy foam of that on there and let it sit for 15 minutes or so and see what will come off... It should do the trick.

Panic always works best for me.

try soaking a towel in something(star san, oxyclean, water) and lay it on top. Let it sit for a while and soften up, then try and remove it.

My solution, leave it! This is your excuse to go all electric and build a rig in the garage. Congrats, you gave her the motivation she needed.

I've never used oven cleaner and I bet that would be the best and quickest, I'll have to try it next time.

But I have had good luck with a paste made with oxyclean...wet the area the put oxyclean on the wet area, and kinda rub it in with your fingers til it's like a paste, then wet it down some more (I use a spray botte)

I let it sit for about an hour, then use elbow grease. Sometimes I'll work moore oxyclean into it as it foams, and wet it down repeatedly)

Then if there's anything left I find that this works great.



Actually you could skip the ozyclean and use a few of these and elbow grease as well.) But unless you buy them in bulk, it's not economical because they destroy themselves during tough stains.

If there is still anything I find that a fine grit wet/dry sanding sponge (wet of course), going really carefully with it over the post (use and edge of it) will remove the biomatter before it takes off the surface...I use it on my brewpots as well

Also, I use fermcap-s foam control drops in my brewing, both on the stove and in my turkey fryer, you can fill nearly to the brim, get a rolling boil going and (like I often do) go and take a nap between hop additions, without worry about boilovers...

My advice...

Leave it and get your @ss chewed. Then get a burner and move outside. You'll never want to do it in the kitchen again!

Magic eraser (like Revvy just mentioned) works everytime for me.
