Sounds like a marginal excuse, but I will let it slide this time.

I have a spring lemon ale bubbling like crazy! (actually just had to install a blow off since I had minor overflow )

Yep. snowy brew day for me too this weekend, plus Jimmy Buffett blaring on my phone!

Usually AG outdoor brewer, but AG indoor this time and actually hit all my numbers spot on! I think not using the propane burner kept me from over boiling the wort. Only problem was cool down, had to stick the covered pot outside for 6 hours and then transferred and cooled at room temp overnight! Who knew 6 gallons of 212 degree wort would take that long to cool naturally!

Bad weather can kiss my glass! I brew rain or snow or shine on my covered deck with propane. Make yourself a wind shield for your kettle and burner and you can brew in a friggin' hurricane so long as you have a roof!

Been cold & wind howling all day. Just started dying down. Man cave is chilly,but the fermenters are at 68F. Perfect temp for the WL029 kolsh yeast I'm using in both batches!

Looks like 3-5" tonight and more tomorrow, another PIA snow event. I expect to get called out about midnight to plow town roads and sand and salt. That will keep me busy Wed. and I expect a delivery of supplies on Thurs. FedEx. I'll be set for the weekend. I'm working out a PA and a Cream Ale recipe for hot weather. I'm completely satisfied with the results so I have to keep trying. You know how that is. Oh the woes of a home brewer....

Now what am I going to do. They are forecasting a foot of snow again this weekend and I am out of fermenters.

Buy another one while you're at the LHBS picking up ingredients?

Said the man from Virginia!

Come on up to MI and I'll brew with you in my garage in 10 degree weather with a good wind.

There are about 2 months that normally find me either not brewing, or brewing half in the house, and half on the back patio. It's just too cold to stand in the garage for hours.

I am having a "bad weather day" myself. It's warm, but it's so windy that I can't kayak from my back door today. I hate when that happens!

So, I'll keep on my shorts and t-shirt and sandals and go to the grocery store and hope for a better fishing and kayaking day tomorrow.

Last Saturday was a brew day for me. It started out warm, sunny and with completely clear skies. And then as the boil started, the clouds and wind rolled in, it dropped twenty degrees and started raining sideways.

Made for a pretty miserable brew day, but I think it turned out well all the same. One of the clearest beers I've made yet.
