Your beer is definitely ruined. I'll be over soon with an 18 litre stainless steel container to collect the ruined beer, so it can be properly disposed of. Do not be worried if the container looks like a corny keg, I promise you I will not take the beer away and drink it myself.

OCC you're beer will be fine.

Cheers
MAH

You must have been giving it a bit to snap the spoon, they are pretty strong..

Oh and if you want to save on postage you can send it down to wollongong rather than adelaide :p

I did exactly the same thing ...LAST NIGHT also!!!!!!! :blink:

... I fished it out with a pair of stainless tongs ??? I've lost count of the number of plastic spoons I've snapped :angry:

Think I'll check out a restaurant supplier and get a long handled stainless soup ladle ...

Just a thought :)

Why don't you attach the long handle spoon to a Makita [or whateveer] and do a decent job of [a] stuffing the spoon or getting the air into the wort.

Steve.

Oh I'm nor far from MAH so send the keg to him and I'll collect it and dispose of it carefully for you.

what was your brewing spoon made of

not an old wooden spoon from the cook

It would be hard to break the long handle jobs from the brew shop

those long handled plastic spoons are the biggest rip-off piece of sh!t ever!
bastard things snap like a twig, (unless you're really slow, like a leggy geriatric sidestroke distance swimmer :)

I thought i'd been splashing around enough sanitiser and hot water to follow it in, and grabbed it from the bottom. Beer grew a carpet in a matter of days :(

LOL - When I've needed to recover something from the wort, used a plastic bin liner (new & unscented) over the arm, works a treat.
& yes, have to agree, those plastic spoons are a total waste of money - invest in a S/S paddle...
