Default how is your weather???????

Just started the boil and my beautiful brew day turned into a severe 50 mph+ wind and rain storm. Sure wish I had a garage. Currently Pouring, just added my first hop addition.

Burner is running at full just to keep kettle boiling. I'll post pics later. I guess it is [I]thunder head[I] IPA I guess I will call the RYE and RAIN IPA.

ANy one else have a good weather story?

ps I wanted to write this like they covered hurricanes on the news, oh well, I guess you get the drift.

BREW ON

It is great here in Michigan, 82F with a cool breeze. Sitting on my back deck drinking a nice cool wheat beer and watching my hops growing!

sun just broke and wind is down to 10 or so, just putting in last hop addition. I also just picked up 3 hop plants from a guy here in town already a few feet long. Any advise on planting already started hop plants. They are cascades too, my favorite. gotta go drop some hops.................... cascades of course

It's been Africa hot here in NE for the last couple of days. 90's with 75˚F dew point! Today it changed. 70's and beautiful! Took my Trans Am out for a scream today.

Hot muggy and overall crappy....I work in Port Aransas and watch the big ships come in from my desk. The other day though I saw a water spout, it was really cool. I've never seen anything like it before.

To make things better it's supposed to rain everyday for the next week starting tomorrow.

It's about 9:30 p.m. and its 62F here just west of Milwaukee. It's been in the low 70's in the daytime here the past couple of days. Man, could we use some of that rain they're getting too much of in Texas.
