This must have been discussed before, but I didn't realize the problem existed until I was boiling an AG on the stove. I had read about leaving the lid off, but I soon noticed the water droplets getting ready to to swan dive into my new masterpiece. I placed the lid on to cover their landing area as I proceeded to wipe down the hood. It has been a long time since I have had to clean poppy diapers, but it was almost that bad. If anything made it to the brew, at least the boiling sterilized it, but it may taste like weeks, months or years of greasy dinners.
No wonder so many brew outside, but it was in the teens yesterday and I love the smell of grains and hops in the house. So much to learn. Thanks to all of you for this great place to do it.
