    Grain crusher not crushing.

From the best I can remember the last brew and this Cooper's extract Cervesa I kegged a few days ago, were in...

    I had an amount of AG wort left over so I left it went to bed with it just sitting in the boil pot, had a busy day the next day and forgot about the pot, went back today and had spontaneous fermentation happening. I was stoked. I could smell diacetyl so I just turfed it and washed the pot up...
