    Got a special license from SWMBO :party: to use new kitchen stainless steel hob to do a AG .
    Mashed ok , then set up boil and waited (about 10pm ) boil cranked up and left it to do the biz. She went off to bed early and i added the last hops and waited 20 mins , thought i would turn off gas and leave to cool overnight then chill cool with ice packs ect. in the morning. :D
    woke up keen to finish the brew and get yeast ready while i chilled wort down a bit more but :eek: lifted my 23 ltr barrel of stove only to see black burned wort stains welded to the stove top :sick:
    :pray: horror of horrors , she would be getting up in half an hour( and life would be not worth living as we know it Jim)
    then i remembered BICARB of SODA :pray: was advised to remove stains from pots ect. so soaked the burnt crap with a paste of BS and after 10 mins a miracle ,using her wooden spatula i removed all the crap and re-polished the rest of the hob !!
    result is now i am still alive and maybe the next brew i will avoid a boil over :whistle:

    ANY OTHER CLOSE CALLS LIKE THIS ONE ?
    drinking turbo cider with ginger
    drinking AGb carob stout
    FV kinda 15 ltres of pale ale my own recipe

    my wife would probably sneak in and turn the gas up to boil it over and then get a new hob out of me in withering looks. :shock:
