Is there a lower recommended max level when boiling?
« on: September 01, 2016, 02:15:24 pm »
I was trying to make a 2L wort starter (dry malt extract and water) for yeast for brewing in a TM21, got a little spooked at being able to boil that in the thermie without boiling over.  I chickened out and poured it out into my Kenwood (3 L cooking capacity in 8 L bowl).

Any advice out there for how full a pitcher can safely be boiled with something prone to foaming up?

Because you are at the maximum level in the TM21 I personally would brew in another pot. Very wise of you to put the starter in the Kenwood.

Especially if it is prone to frothing up.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
