Dough in at 1115 and it's already over 80 in the brewshed. Now I get to see how my new exhaust system is going to work. Doing my first Honey Ale, hope it works out I have a lot of folks that don't like the real hoppy beers that I normally do.
It's 45F outside & my brand-new $8,000 heatpump is DOA! I don't think I'll see many hops this year.
I've found many people like Milds. Fuggles and East Kent Goldings will win more BMC people over than the 3C's.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

I am using Amarillo and Cascade, still want a little hoppy, plu I have about 10lbs of Cascade to use up.
I am 10 min into the boil and it has stabilized at 92 in the brewshed, not too bad considering it's 83 outside. I think I may move my brew sessions to Friday night brews.
I'm done and inside in the ac, ti's 86 outside and 98 in the shed. I think I'll clean up in the morning when it's cool. Hit all may value's now it's wait and see time.
Yeah I decided last night i need to get an outdoor burner setup, brewing on the stove raises the kitchen temperature by at least 10 degrees
