It is with a heavy heart I must confess… my first batch of all grain is toast… I should have took a bit more of a look in ingredients and yeast choice. A simple misunderstanding to this little project from what it should have been to a bitter tasting mess.
A few degrees means life or death in most brewing settings and boy, was I way off. It was never cold enough. Perhaps if I would have had my ex sit in the room with it, the icy chill from where her heart should have been would have done it. But alas, I have moved upward and forward. All there is left to do is pour this failed experiment down the drain, clean up, refresh my head and start over.
