The hot liquor tank (HLT) supplies all our heated brewing water but it holds only just enough for a single batch. Therefore, when double brewing, it's imperative filling and heating operations run smoothly so I can get cracking on the second brew before lunch. Today, for the first time in two years, it tripped out for no discernible reason. Now if I were the superstitious kind I'd be tempted to make up a whole load of rubbish surrounding this event based probably on some deity and punishment for an act of 'sin'. Since I'm not inclined to believe shite, or make it up, I'm happy to put it down to unusual circumstance and keep a watchful eye out for it happening again.
Besides, it only cost me an hour in the end.
Brews 1 & 2 went very well despite the minor delay and the new fermenters are looking cool.
