Hot Break, I’d actually stirred it back down before taking this:

Half time, better have a slurp, which was my first ever Extract brew (Hop back Entire Stout):

Boiler run-off, the wort was cooled in the bath upstairs over a couple of hours:

Our tiny cooker! I let this go into the 25L bucket rather than my 15L as I expect the stout to explode shortly!:
