... don't try to pour the dregs of the fermenter down the sink when it includes 50g of pulverized leaf hops. I typically use hop pellets either supplied with the beer kit or added by me but this week I finished a Beerworks Sheepdog's Pride Suffolk Bitter that came with 50g of Pilgrim in leaf form which I had previously smashed up in a blender and then made hop tea with adding the whole lot to the beer. Normally the dregs from pellets + the yeast cake I just lob in the sink and wash away. I tried to do this this time, queue one blocked sink and alot of cursing by me. I eventually managed to shift it with the plunger but had visions of having to remove all the pipework to the utility sink + own up to the missus. Won't be doing that again! Ideally I'd compost it but we don't have a heap at home, only down the allotment, and I like to clean my fermenters straight after use.
