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 ?

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:

3rd batch of barley drying in my greenhouse - circa 55c+ - saves using the cooker! :cheers:
