I planned on brewing today, but I'm really not feeling it. Cold as balls out with a wind that aint helping. I think I'm going to put it off for a few days.

I like to be comfortable when I brew

I have a big gas stove with an extra large burner, and I do BIAB, so I'm just helping to keep the house warm( good excuse for the SWMBO!)

Yeah I was gonna brew this weekend. I told SWMBO that I'm brewin this weekend so it will probably snow (Its been in the 50s most of this winter). She laughed at me. But I'll be damned...it snowed. And it's colder than the balls on a well digger. So I guess I'll work on some much needed brew projects and "honey dews".

Saw you post and the light went on in my head! I do have the mother of all 6 burner gas cooktop. BUT, the F'n Microwave hood is exactly the same height off the cook top as my 10gal kettle. (not even gonna try the 20gal Blichmanns). Damnit I wish my ebrewery was done. Oh well I'll for go brewing today to work on that I guess.

It's 26* here in North Georgia, but an IIPA recipe is calling my name and I have to answer. Going to start my mash within the hour!

25 degrees here. Just fired up the burner. Using the igloo so the mash can happen inside. Fairly simple Saison De Noel recipe, so it should go well. I haven't brewed in almost a month, and it's been driving me crazy.

I have to admit the cold made me decide against firing up my kettle today for my first AG. I'll push it off to next weekend.
