Whew, I'm not the only one. Except for me it seems to always be, "crap, I missed my hop addition." Luckily it's never been more than a couple minutes.Actually the biggest distraction for me is this forum. What starts out to be a couple minutes sometimes turns into 20, then why did the flame go out, and what's that propane smell, or dang boil-over...If you're prone to getting easily distracted by shiny objects, then skimming gives you something to do.
LOOK! a chicken!
Nah, its not a chicken or even the kids that provide the distraction. Its usually "Now where did I put those damn hops I weighed out 10 minutes ago "
