Default What a wonderful day to brew!

It's 22 degrees and snowing. What a perfect day to brew outside! Well in the garage but I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Saturday.

Maybe I'll mash inside.

Gonna try a Southern English Brown.

Anyone else fighting the elements?

I'm glad I brewed last night. Woke up to frozen hoses this morning. That would have been a PITA.

What do you do about this?

I've yet to use the wort chiller in this weather... my plan is to just steal the sink water line, my sink doesn't have an adapter :/

It's 19 in Port Huron, with a nice lake effect snowsquall, and I'm about to head out to support my best friend as he jumps in lake Huron for our towns annual Polar Bear Plunge...

Groan....I keep thinking it's bad enough I'm gonna be taking pictures, then I remember that my damn fool friend is going in the water.

Default I brewed yesterday

It was a nice chilly 47 degrees with nary a cloud in the sky, at least I didn't notice any. It's going to be a similar day today. If I didn't have to make a big batch of chili for a party tonight I'd be brewin again today. In these parts it don't get to cold in the winter. We usually get 1 week of below freezing temperatures. In the summer time 75 is sweltering hot.

I brewed in the garage yesterday. It was a balmy 28 degrees in northern Indiana. My mash tun held a steady 150 degrees for the entire hour regardless of how cold the temperature in the garage was.

I'm out here fighting the elements, heating my strike water as I type! I'm brewing this:
7lbs belgian pale malt
1lb belgian aromatic munich
1lb vienna
0.5lb crystal 10

1.25oz saaz 60min
0.75oz saaz 15min
1 oz saaz 5min

wyeast 3463 forbidden fruit

My assistant brewer (dog) is even out here with me braving the cold.

Well, it is 61 and mostly cloudy here, so it I guess some of you might have a few more elements to deal with.
