Dont brew pissed. :(
I will reveal the results of my A amylase experiment later, but I put another Mazen on this morning with a 20 min mash in at 20 deg C, 15 mins at 54 deg C, 15 Min at 60 deg C, 90 min at 70 deg C, and finaly 15 min at 78 deg C. Anyway I will explain the mash shedule another day.
So I filler the BM up last night. Dumped the 5.6kgs og grain in at 8:30am and then went to church. Came home, removed malt pipe, sparged then boiled for 90 min.
The problem came between having a few too many Celebration Ales (Brewbuilder brew) and clean up. During clean up I dropped the impeller of my pump and broke of 3 fins. So out with the super glue and a quick fix was in order.
So Mark.........I will see you soon for a new impeller.
Todays lesson is..................DONT DRINK AND BREW, Even with a BM :)

Arent you lucky I carry spare parts, bring in the old impeller (there are two types) just to make sure you get the right one, and so we can point and jeer a bit.

Its THAT good is it ?

;)
Yes, I did think, what could go wrong. Compared with my old 3 Vessel system, where I had to be dry for about 3 days prior to brewing, as there was so many things that could go wrong. So I thought a couple of Celebration Ales wont hurt.
Anyway, the Marzen is in the fridge at 9 deg C with 2 litres of high krausen Munich Larger (seasonal) pitched.
Its also worth noting that I have had serveral more Celebration Ales and quite a few Boh Pils. :)

I don't have a BM so only the voices in my head tell me to drink.

According to your story there is no issue with drinking while brewing.
The problem was cleaning up, so today's lesson is really .. if you're brew and at the same time drink, but don't bother cleaning up when you are drunk. :)

What do you mean don't clean up!?!?

What will my imaginary brew maidens do while I'm drunk and passed out while brewing on my imaginary BM?

With my BM I have to stir and apply heat for ramping so I can only be moderately drunk.

The readout on the display on mine says, "BIG W $19.95".

The big benifit to the Big W braumeister though is when you leave the dirty pot in the kitchen, the wife cleans it up for you, so you can be as drunk as you want by the end of the brew day.

I can honestly say in my 14 years of AG brewing on my 3v or BM, I have always cleaned up straight after my brew.

Take that as you will. :lol:

Mate broke his BM during clean-up. Went to tip the water out, while resting one of the 3 legs against the bench for support.
Folded the leg in, creasing the bottom of the pot. The malt pipe wouldn't seal against the bottom until it had a trip to the panel beaters.
Dunno how many he'd had by then.

Those people who can afford a BM you can likely afford to pay for the services of a buxom wench to do their cleaning for them :ph34r:
