Cold brewing certainly has its advantages...
Chilling is SO much easier, especially with snow/ice and an immersion pump. Boiling to 48F in under 10 mins? Yes please.
Ferm temp control...many of us ferment in our garages. Colder garage = easy lagering.
I welcome the change in seasons as an excuse to brew different styles, i.e., lagers.
