Default Anybody brewing in this heat?

Its been pretty warm in Oregon, above 85 recently. Not exactly the kind of weather I want to be boiling the kettle, indoors or out doors. I've got plenty of home brew saved up and I don't plan to brew again until fall.

85 sounds like a nice FL spring day! Temps have been hitting 95 around here and I am still brewing. Though prechilling is a must

I am. Almost hit 90 here today. Was only outside long enough to heat up and start my mash. Worked on the tan a bit :P

I've got an evaporative cooler on the garage, so I can cool the brewery just by opening the connecting door.

But, it's 95F outside and the cooler is blowing 80F at 60% RH. So, I think I'll just work on the drywall. Just put the Mild in the cabinet and tap. Maybe I'll look for some apple juice tomorrow to pitch on the cake. Haven't had any cider for a while and it looks like a bad year for apples in the valley. I've seen reports of 15% normal due to the May rains. That means no fresh cider on the cheap.

Tell me about it. I think 85 is going to be our low today.

I've been brewing in our 100+ heat. My pre-chiller and ice, lots and lots of ice, are necessities.

Tell me about it, same here, and I had the stones to brew a lager yesterday. Don't ask what I was thinking. Imagine trying to chill wort to 50 degrees when its 100 degrees outside, and the tap water in your IC is 90. I used a metric crapton of ice!

Been hot in Vegas recently as well (to be expected). I've got a batch in my primary right now, with AC the apartment is around 75, so not too bad.
