Default Anyone else crazy enough to brew today...

We made a stout in the 20 degree weather with 40mph gusts.
The discharge from the wort chiller instantly froze to the driveway!

Pfffft.....I run around naked when it's 20 degrees.

I woke up to -16 with a -35 wind chill yesterday.

But the fact that you brewed in the 20 degrees..........Props

Same here outside of DC! It was so cold that after I cooled the wort to 67 or so with the IC, by the time I got it to the fermenter and into the house the wort was down into the 50s.

Brewed two batches in Philly this week, it's a nice 70 degrees in my kitchen on my CB20 system. No need for going outside!

I brewed an ESB on Sunday in northern NJ and it was pretty cold. Also was my first all grain batch, which forced me to be outside

Um, are all of you crazy enough to brew outside willingly or does SWMBO just kick you out on brewdays?

Brewed 2 batches New Years Day and it wasnt more than 10 degrees outside.....but I had sense to be inside
