Stay warm, Cheyco!

Probably no brewing for me this weekend. I'll just be running out to grab some oak chips (I think that's right) in preperation for racking Mr. 666. I'll probably end up picking up some grain though, so who knows.

Hey Cheyco, where is that place you pictured? What sort of facility is that?

I hope to be able to brew but the weather is looking pretty sheety. If I get to brew, it'll probably be a nice hoppy APA/IPA. I've been brewing a string of dark beers (huge stout, big porter) and weird beers (lambic, Flanders Red), so I need some good ole' drinkin beer.

Still too cold to think about light summer beers...

Well, if you can't brew beer this weekend, maybe you can relocate some!

Man, I wish. We had a couple of nice weeks where it was in the 70s, but for the past week or so it's been really crappy again. Unbelievably, the snow level is supposed to drop to 300-500 feet tonight. It's only 40 degrees now at 11 AM.

This is not the California weather I signed up for. I want my taxes back!

I think that's a drilling rig...we have those in pretty much every back yard down here.

Yup, that's a drilling rig. We have more oil and gas reserves than Texas up here. My exact location is 54°10.059N by 118°32.470W Which is somewhere north east of Edmonton, if you know where that is. The weather is pretty good here. As canadians we think about light summer beers all the time, since there is lots of winter. It's cold 8 months of the year here, and for the other 4 months it's very cold!

I won't be brewing this weekend, but will try a bottle of my first batch, after sitting in bottles for 1 week. Will it be carbonated as much as it should be? Or taste as good as it could yet? From my readings NO, but I want to taste my beer (that isn't 68F and nearly completely flat).

That's where Grande Prairians go to do stuff they don't want their neighbors to know about!
