What constitutes ridiculously cold in GA?

Brewing up a 100% Brett beer and a imperial honey porter in the morning. 14 degrees out right now so shouldn't have a problem chilling the beer.

Congrats on the first brew! I bet you already have the next 6 planned out.

I'm making a Presidential stout this weekend, putting it on top of the yeast cake from a batch of Centennial Blonde, which I'll be bottling. I should have brewed the stout last weekend, but I didn't buy enough of the right hops.

It's 6*F here in the mountains of GA where I am planning on beginning a brew either this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

I did my first after work brew session last night, which is the 6th batch under my belt. Luckily we had a whole day above freezing so my hose was thawed. It went well and enjoyed a few of my Stone IPA clones that are close to the real deal. The measured OG was 1.069, but forgot to do that until after I pitched.

On deck for today is kegging two beers, moving two more into secondaries and bottling a half-case or more from each of the 7 taps.

All while a pot roast slow cooks in a bath of smoked porter, veggies and spices.

I was going to say its the same temp here in the mountains of VT, but it looks like we just dropped to 5 (my weather station).
