Friday 21st was to be a pre Birthday #BrewDay, I was all set to do a Simcoe Double IPA I Got up early opened up the shedquarters before I had my breakfast, Rinsed out the HLT and then I promptly Burnt out the element
I thought I’d got away with it but it took too long to heat the Liquor..
1/2 of the element had burnt out !….I’d Had to modify the boiler to maintain a rolling Boil otherwise the thermal protection would have saved it…
I spent the rest of the day looking for a spare but finding it was listed as obsolete and then contemplating should I get a 70L or 100L boil pot and propane ring. I couldn’t decide!
Saturday was my Birthday and I had a leisurely day , a few beers in Coopers of Guiseley and then home for a nice Curry from IndianSpice also in Guiseley and some Sticky Buns..
Sunday Back in the shed.. 40mm hole cutter in one hand and £5 kettle and assorted ‘o’ rings in the other. The Kettle Element stripped out and into that 40mm hole but No Joy I just could’t get a seal….
So there’s still a Big un answered question, Do I get a 70L of 100L pot?
