Default Forgive me for thinking this is awesome/Brewing in cold weather.

I live in Arizona and haven't really brewed much when it's cold. I noticed all of the steam coming off of my kettle during the boil and this just looks awesome.

It's great.. until your scheduled brew day is pushing the mercury down below -20. I huddle in the house over the gas stove instead.

I'm originally from Ohio. Trust me, I know how silly it sounds.

If you live out here for 6 years though 110° isn't that bad and anything below 60° is "cold".

uhhh, yea... cold.

I'll brew all winter here in MN. I just leave the door cracked in the garage, the burner usually warms it up a bit.
