Default I am RUINED

Its 10 degrees, snowing, wind is blowing about 30 mph here in Casper Wyoming, so I decided today is a great brew day. I am doing my first partial mash, following deathbrewers guide lines. It is a brown ale clone. I am ruined because the smell of those grains steeping is awsome. I know now that ag is going to be in my future very soon. It has gone very well, ecxcept for my stove being so slow to boil 3 gal. I will be buying a propane burner for the next batch. Thanks to all those here who share their knowlage, experiences, and opinions so freeley. With out all of you I would be lost.
Kyle

Ruined as well. Every day I have off work and have an empty fermenter, I brew. That is, as long as the SWIMBO isn't home....

My SWMBO likes the smell of hops in the boil and my little boy (9 months)likes to watch the pot bubble, so I am good on that front.

Hey Casper Brewer...I'm a Casper Brewer as well. Actually today it's about 15 degrees outside. Not brewing today (that was the last three weekends so now I'm enjoying football and a very nice pale from an earlier cold weekend)
I've been doing AG for the past several months and am enjoying it greatly! For a burner I just picked up a turkey fryer ay out local Menards (about $69.00) and it work fantastically!!!
Should check out our new Casper HB club!
Enjoy, relax, watch a good game and of course, have a home brew.

Be glad your SWMBO likes the smell! I was sorting my hops for my IPA I brewed today inside at my bar and the wifey made sure to let me know "those hops smell", "delicious" was my response.. her face read other wise. But I love her, She bought me a 7ft cubic freezer the other month for a ferm chamber. So I can care less if she likes the smell, I don't mind brewing outside. =oP

I too am ruined, steeping grains and citrusy tastey hops.. its my houses new airfreshner 2x a week.

A tip btw I have found that the propane burner on my grill gives more btus thatn my stove.. and can super speed up mash times

If I lived out there in Wyoming where it gets so cold, I would be looking at one of the electric brew pot conversions.

Something about heating water for the mash tun and boiling wort outside on a propane burner in sub zero weather with the wind blowing that doesn't sound like a lot of fun.

I think the theme song of this forum should be "another one bites the dust"

Or maybe "welcome to my nightmare"
