I think well just get rain and wind here from it. I'm brewing a lager on sat and hope I don't lose power from Irene in sun!

I was hoping to brew Sunday too... I have let my pipeline get a little too dry unfortunately and Sunday was my first open day at cooking up a new batch.

Instead I'll probably be on standby all day at the firehouse if the hurricane is still tracking to be bad enough. With the ground as saturated as it already is, if we do get substantial unpleasant weather on Sunday I am definitely expecting some flooding and downed trees/wires. Hopefully that's it and there wont be many water rescues/fires from it.

I was/am planning to brew on Saturday but now some of the models have this thing making landfall at Wilmington. If i can find a way to maintain the fermentation temps with no power, I may just do it anyway.

I have a 2 gallon starter going for a really big barleywine, how long will this thing stay healthy? I may have to store it until next weekend.

Could always decant the starter and store it in a sanitized mason jar in the fridge

That's what I'd do. And take advantage of the time to cold crash for a good while to get all those yeasties out of suspension so none go down the drain.

Be careful guys, some of the models are predicting a cat 5 by the time this thing makes landfall. I went through Charley when it hit Florida a few years back, if I had it to do over again I would have vacated the premises well in advance and I was on the East coast at the time, near Punta Gorda. If this one is anywhere close to that intensity brewing beer will be the least of your concerns, trust me.

Whatever happens best wishes and good luck, you will all be in my prayers.

It's still too early to tell whether my area will be hit hard or not, but I've been putting off my imperial pumpkin brew day for too long and need to get it done. My biggest concern would be that once I reach boil on the propane burner at the edge of the open garage and turn it down, the winds blow it out...

I'm seriously considering hitting up Lowes or HD tonight to see if they have any of those $200 generators left. If we lose power for more than an hour during a rainstorm, my crawlspace basement would flood and I'd be out a practically brand new boiler, a brand new water heater, and a couple of hundred pounds of base grain... $200 seems a bargain compared to what it would cost to replace all of that...
