Should i sanitize the pot that i will be using the prepare the wort before i use it? I will be using one of Mr. Beer hopped malt extracts and this is my first brew. The manual does not say anything about this. It just says boil the hopped malt extract with four cups of water.
Boiling water (or wort in this case) will sanitize the pot and anything in the pot. No need to pre-sanitize.
By the way, make sure the pot is clean of any physical matter or the wort will pick up unexpected flavors from it.
