Its 105 F today at 10 AM.
Perfect time to brew outdoors.
Only have to bring the water up 50 degrees to steep grain.

Supposed to be 113 F.
Was 118 yesterday.
Making a Sierra Nevada Clone

I'll keep you posted.

Your a better man than me. I'm taking a break from brewing for a while with this heat and focusing on equipment now. Just bought all my stuff to make Checyo's CFC. Not that I can use it now with the water coming out at 90+ degrees .

Just bought a case of Nimbus Pale Ale from Sams club for $20. Not bad... I'll probably squeeze in a batch sometime in Aug.

I remember going to a conference in Pheonix right when aspartame just hit the market. The diet soda had been stored in someone's garage for three weeks in July!

Or living in Las Vegas. You'd get into you car after a day's work and the engine temperature was "normal".

106F here yesterday (officially that is, an all-time record). My LaCross said 109F.

Anyone up for a solar-wort boiler? You would only need a 3-sun concentration.

5 minutes of boil time left. Outside temperature is 110.

Gettting the pre-chiller/immersion chiller ready.

I'm also using the whirlpool method for the first time... just so I can be out here longer.

Yeah dude. I couldn't take that heat.

I'd be running around naked (OK not really running) with an ice water mister spraying me all day.


I wouldn't be able to work. up in the ceilings of plants with no ventilation working on cfanes, screw that.

I feel sorry for you up there in Phx. We are normally 15-20 degrees cooler than you guys. We almost hit 100 the other day and I was miserable.

It's our 3-4 months of winter. You hang inside a lot or if you have a pool that's the place to be. And yea, everyone has AC (or swamp cooler <yuck>). The other 7-8 months; georgeous...
