I pretend the turkey fryer is a camp fire and huddle up real close while I brew. Sometimes I put my head right in the steam plume for minutes on end to unthaw my face.

Ha, I've been sweating my ass off these past few weeks brewing! It is chilly here, all the way down to 50! and our wind makes it chilly too.

I feel for you guys up north, but I have trouble keeping my beers cold enough! It's always greener on the other side I guess

Brewed a ipa the other week in the bitter cold.. was starting to run low on homebrews. I couldn't take seeing my primary empty any longer.

50s is perfect brewing weather imo. its been a great winter for brewing in the northeast overall. 1 or 2 freezing brew days isnt too bad.

Good luck with your clone. The coldest I've brewed in is 11F and that was pushing it... At least cooling happened quickly as my ground water gets to about 40 in winter.

148 will make yours a bit dryer than Brooklyn Brown. They get relatively low attenuation with their house yeast (derivative of Fuller's strain).

I used S05 on my BB inspired brown ale, mashed at 156 and so far is pretty good (bottled yesterday, so only tried the hydro sample).

What was your grain bill?

I'd say heavy on the chocolate? Looks more like a brown porter recipe to me, but there's definitely some style overlap there
