...after a little bit of research and more than a bit of suspicion with a hint of 'it's still good right?' I came across this

snip from

Sodium Metasilicate

Review of Toxicological Literature

Human Data
On intact and abraded skin, sodium metasilicate (37%) in a detergent with sodium carbonate (50% w/v
aqueous) was a severe irritant. In modified soap chamber tests, sodium metasilicate had no adverse
effects (i.e., erythema and edema scores were low). In elbow crease tests and semi-occluded patch tests,
mild and temporary irritation was observed with sodium metasilicate. Ingestion of 0.5 L of colloidal
sodium metasilicate resulted in the death of an individual within one to 1.5 hours. Autopsy revealed
alkali burns in the gastric mucosa and condensed waterglass in the stomach, while microscopic
examination showed amorphous sodium metasilicate in the bronchioles and alveoli of the lungs.

from HERE

sigh.. had better go and bin it..

I did nearly the same thing. I put Casacade instead of Centennial in my APA.

On the bright side, at least you didn't waste all the time on the mash, sparge and boil :)

I was making mashed potatoes for dinner last night while my brew was on the boil.

About three times as I was cutting up the spuds I went to drop them in the brew instead of the spud pot. Caught just in time.

One of the hazards of Stovetop brewing while making dinner.

Bittering, Flavour and Aroma Spud additions?

Atleast you could have added the spuds to your mash......

I wonder what the diastatic power of a spud is?






I'll stop now.

A few spuds in the mash would probably work well. Much like adding rice, or flour I'd guess - those things are pure starch aren't they?

In the boil might have been asking a bit much from the Koppafloc.

I know we're not supposed to talk about it - but do they add an enzyme to spuds to make the "Russian Drink"?

I've always wondered about that, some quick googling says you need enzymes. But commercially its made from malt (rye, wheat, etc), which is easier to use anyway.

Don't even think about it.

All experiments i have seen documented were hard work for very little result.
