OMG! That's Nasty!

On my last brew day, I made a Belgian ale. It was getting late by the time I finished up so I left the spent grain in the mash tun out on the back patio to clean up in the morning. Fast forward 2 weeks and I’m getting my equipment ready for another brew day and ‘where the heck is my cooler?’ Oh crap!! After 2 weeks sitting outside in the 70 and 80 degree temps, it was pretty nasty! Moldy and smelled horrible. So, after scrubbing with bleach, soaking in PBW and more rinsing than I can count, I think I’m ready to brew a couple days after my original plan. Lesson learned. I’ll never do that again. Wow!

Ohh wow, that could not have been fun. Yeah, regardless of how tired or intoxicated I am at the end of the brew day, I always force myself to clean all my gear. Seems like the job is twice as bad with each day you put it off.

Happened to me when I let someone brew on my equipment. A kettle of boiling water and a cup of vinegar neutralized the smell, but that was after only two or three days.

I hate just throwing away the bag of spent grains sitting in my garage for a couple of days, I can’t imagine what that sour mess smelled like!

there should be an emoticon for puking

I used to run a forum for a gaming clan, they fell apart about a year ago but I still have all the stuff.

No idea. I collected a ton of smilies over the years, I compressed them into a .rar file so I could email it and whatnot, IIRC that’s how you have to upload them to a web forum (of course, you have to have full admin privileges to install them so they can be used). Shoot me a PM with your email and I’ll send over what I have if you want it, they’re all .gif and the like once you unzip the file.

That’s about right. But on the plus side, the cooler is probably cleaner now than it’s ever been :mrgreen:
