Snow is an insulator, you're better off just leaving the kettle exposed to the air.

LOL. I really only took the picture for effect. I actually used an ice bath with some snow in it

As newlyweds,we lived in a duplex on an alley between main roads. We had to get all the guys together to shovel it out. We'd have some canned beers in a snow bank that froze in 5 minutes.

I did this one last night. It was my first All Grain. Yay me!!!
I just bought my SWMBO a really nice dryer and I haven't got rid of the old one just yet. So I thought to myself, "a 10 gallon cooler shouldn't be to heavy, I pick up my 5 gallon buckets all the time" yeah that sucked. The cooler is just awkward and the dryer is pretty tall, but I got it up there. I didn't have anything else that was high enough but looking back through this thread I just realized I had a few unused cinder blocks in the back yard Looks like I will be building a proper brew stand when I get paid lol

+1 The first (and only time) I put my kettle in the snow, I couldn't figure out why it took SO long to chill..........never again!

And yes, I did climb up the ladder to double check my hot liquor temps. I've got an ebay pump on the way to deliver me from ghetto brewing. also notice the bulkhead/valve stolen from an old bottling bucket on my hlt.
