Yeah, actually only in English it's written "tablespoon" while in other languages it's ambiguous since it's only "spoon"... so probably a mistake on their side.

Actually, the German instruction uses the deminutive "Löffelchen", i.e. small spoon.

Oh interesting, because on our package - I know checked again - it actually says "Esslöffel", totally weird. It must be a mistake in translation here, and a quite stupid one. Will never use a tablespoon again for backflushing, that much is clear :p

So it seems that there are different versions around, because as you can see on the photograph I posted some instructions say "Löffelchen". Quite annoying, isn't it?

Yes, indeed. I'm just so happy to have managed to get a non-detergent shot from my Brewtus :D Hope this crazy episode doesn't happen again, and hopefully it was simply caused by way too much detergent used at the time which somehow needed lots and lots of rinsing.
