First time brewing in 7 months tonight. New burner, oldish grains. Went pretty well, hit my temps, hit my volumes, yadda yadda.... propane tank froze, some issues w/ burner cause it was new...nothing too brutal.
Get to chilling. I recently moved into a new house when I transferred schools. I had to disconnect the washing machine to get a hose line for my wort chiller, ended getting out the big tools and using a huge pipe wrench to get the 10+ year old line off. Skinned a few knuckles, no biggie...
stick my immersion chiller in, crank up the water, go inside to grab something, come back out two minutes later and my kettle is about over flowing... **** **** ****.....sure enough, I yank the chiller and water just comes shooting out of the bottom.
Nothing I could do. Wort is still hot, probably contaminated.... I walked into the house and took a shot.
Just took a refractometer reading, 9.5% Brix.... 1.041 OG. Dump it.
