Monday we used the most loose-leaf hops (which is actually a flower) we’ve ever used during a boil. Usually we use a lot of hop pellets in the boil and reserve loose-leaf for dry-hopping. Things were going great. Joel was even keeping his nose out of everything so that the grown-ups could work.
So then we had to cool the wort and get it into fermenters. So… that actually posed a problem. See that strainer full of spinach-type-stuff? There were about four strainers of the same stuff in the beer. Holy flower power, Batman! There’s a clog in my pipe!
