Agreed - I go up there on occasion for business/pleasure. Man it is hot up there in summer, and I think more humid from all the populous/watering. I watched a pre-season Packer Cardinals game in Tempe a couple years back. 116 degrees. I could barely take it, and there are those guys on the field playing football??

I got both swamp and AC. Mine works great from May-June. Then when the humidy creeps up enough they start to bite. I flip off of it during monsoon and go to AC. Swamps definitely are better on the wallet!

If it weren't 115 there would be 10 million people living here. It's an equalizer.

LA hasn't been much better this weekend. Downtown and Long Beach were 101 yesterday and the poor suckers in Woodland Hills (part of "The Valley") had it at a record of 119!

There are. At least it seems like it until we hit 100° a few days in a row.
Why not brew at night? I find its a lot easier to brew at 90-95° at midnight. I think ASH does a midnight brewout sometime during the summer.

Normally I do.

I consider this to be a Statement Brew!

Moving to secondary tommorrow and starting an Alaskan Amber clone.

Change 115 to -40 and we'd be in the same boat

I dont know about you guys, but monsoon is in full force down here. We had 2.4 inches of rain in one day! I know desertbrew is getting his share of monsoons up there. How you guys doing ollllo?

I think I finally found a name for my home brewery.
