Default Why Today is NOT a Good Day

Woke up a 0600 to get the Brew Day started. Wife is gone with my 6 yr. old Son to Hockey. I have my 4 tr. old Daughter Helping me. Everything was prepped last Night. HLT Filled, check. Mash Tun Put together, Check. Now, this morning, pre heat the mash Tun with Boiling Water and proceed to dump Boiling Water on Bare Foot, Check... While I am on the gound wondering how the hell that Happened and surveying the injuries, I notice that my Mash Tun is leaking. WTF!!! So, the Brew Day has been cancelled as I will be calling my Dr. and asking him what to do about an Open Burn wound that is leaking fluid. Also, I am tired of my leaky Cooler/Mash Tun and am in the Market for a new one. But that's another thread.

get some vicodin, some duct tape and some gauze pads. eat the vicodin, wrap the gauze pad and half of the duct tape around foot. wrap other half of duct tape around leaky mash tun. brew away. just keep the 4 yr old away from the mash tun. and the vicodin.

Sorry to hear about your foot, but saftey first and get that foot tended too. You can always brew again but you only have two feet so take good care of them and I hope you recover quickly, Brew on.

For a little humor... I hope yours doesn't leak like mine. I have forgotten to close the valve before adding water and of course hot water pours out.. On me!

Note to self. Close valve on HLT and MLT before adding water.

I hope this is the first and last time you do this.
I don't think anyone needs to say boiling water and bare feet don't go together.

I've done that one several times. You'd think I'd learn by now.
