Weather turned bad this evening and I had to move my brew (in progress) off the turkey fryer and on to the stovetop. Everything turned out OK except for the stovetop.



...needless to say, the wife wasn't too pleased with the results. Guess I know how I'll be spending my Saturday. heh

Bust out the Oxyclean.... The bottom of my pot looked worse than that once and the oxyclean got it off really easily..

Looks like you need to build a gazibo Sunday.

John - mix up a solution of oxy or b-brite or the like, take off the burner element, place an old folded bath towel on the stove top and soak it with the solution - keep it wet overnight and you'll save yourself a bunch of scrubbing....

speaking from experience...

skol!

Thanks for the ideas. She was still pissed this morning - heh. I'll see if I can start the process this evening and let it soak overnight. In a weird way, this just gained me some more leeway to buy additional equipment as she told me that I'm NEVER brewing in the house again. "Ok - but I'm gonna have to buy more stuff...". ;-)
