I found a new horrible smell this morning.
While making my braggot I didnt have time to clean out my mashtun last night so I had to let it sit over night with wet spent grain in it. The wife decided she wanted to let for her party an hour earlier then she told me so I was in a bit of a rush to get the brew into a carboy much less to get everything cleaned up like I wanted to.
ANYWAY I wake up this morning and start cleaning up. I get everything all washed and nice then get ready to attack the mashtun. I open up the ball vavle to try and get every last bit of water out befor I run the grain outside and when I opened the lid to take out the manifold it was like someone shoved a gangrene foot wrapped up in a bread bag for a few months and shoved in a nice winter boot right into my nose (yes I do know what a gangrene foot wrapped up in a bread bag for a few months and shoved into a winter boot smells like . . . I'm a fireman/paramedic . . . dont ask . . .)
I swear on all that is holy I will NEVER let a mash tun sit over night again with spent grain in it. I may have to sniff the dogs arse a few hours just to get this stank outa my nose.
