I started with some general cleaning in the bar/brew area, then I mopped the floor.
Next came cleaning the inside of the kegerator.
Then I had a beer, well another one.

Coddled my starter. Checked on my 8 month old sour. Cleaned a fermenter.

Default 2nd degree Saison

Well today for beer I took one for the team folks...

It all started when I realized that I had left some hop material and wort in the brew kettle from my last brew session. Well in the Montana December "heat" wave of 10-30 degrees it was frozen junk that i needed to get out. So I warmed up the kettle on the burner to thaw it and went to dump it behind the house where I always do. I slipped and started to fall it happened so fast I wasn't thinking of anything other than pushing the kettle away from me so it didn't land on top of me. Well instinct was to grab the bottom and that was HOT. I got 2nd degree burns on the inside of my fingers on my left hand and had to visit the walk-in Clinic. And worst of all my Mash temp dropped from 148 to 142 over the course of the 3 HOUR MASH while i was at the clinic! All and all though it wasn't that bad and could have been worse. I learned that gloves should be used when moving HOT items! My good buddy Jeff came over and helped me finish the brew day. I hit the Pre and Post boil SG numbers and i think the brew will turn out fine..

Jeff chose the name for this brew

Sh1t man sorry to see and hear that. Way to suck it up and get it done though! Who knows you might have something with the three hour mash technique. Hope the brew turns out great and the hand gets back to 100% ASAP keep those burns coated in that silvadene cream stuff and covered up. Cheers.

Dave

We moved last month, and I never got my hops. in lovely Pennsylvania the winters are a mixed bag. I waited until today, warm weather at 45 degrees and I knew the ground would be soft enough to dig.
My night time raid only yielded my cascade root stock - the cluster is still enough to fill a 7 gallon bucket.

Plus side of brewing when it is sub zero outside. .. chilled my wort to pitching temp in only 20 min with a simple water bath Plus snow. As much as I love brewing at our cabin my system is much more refined at home. Though I have never chilled in only 20 min with my submersion chiller.
