...a watched pot will never boil; but in brewing an unwatched pot could boil over... I need another beer. :lol:

Sorry to hear that. I've had a boil over or two. I don't know which is worse, the cleanup or the lost beer.

I didn't have one. It just took like 45 min. to start to boil and I needed to go do other things. I stayed there and watched and the time drug on...
Everything went fine though. My first all grain down! :D :D

That puts you ahead of me. I'm going to try my first AG brew Sunday. Since I'm on one of those little Cajun cookers, and I don't have a pump, there will be a lot of heavy lifting involved

I here you there...
I brewed that in my shoe box apartment.
Lifting from the floor to the stove. My wife said she couldnt watch...
That would be a huge mess not to mention a huge waste!
