Yes, my brew day yesterday. I just did my biggest equipment upgrade only to think it's time to sell them and give up the nine years in this hobby. I did my first ten gallon batch with keggles I purchased. Since I could directly heat the mash tun, I thought I would try step mashing. Acid test, protein, then both starches followed by mash out. I'll never do that again! I didn't stir enough at the bottom, got busy with kids running around the basement, and one I got a better stir in, I went from 120 to 191. It leveled out at 172. I added cold water add Ice cubes and it went down to 140. I really don't know what I got (it's a surly furious clone that should be mashed at 154), but the fermentation is going well. Then, the new keggles kettle clogged up with whole hops. I barely could fill the second keg. Took forever to get it out. Then, I could not get the new oxygen wand to even screw on the oxygen tank. I started banging the floor saying "why can't crap just go right"
This was my biggest jump, tested and treated my water, pitched correct yeast, used oxygen wand, it's in a fermentation chamber, etc, etc. Lesson is, just because you got new toys doesn't mean your ready to use them or are going to be a pro. It's tempting to have way too high of expectations after you do tons of research , listen to podcasts or binge read brulosophy. Next time, in going to do a walk through the day before
