Default Snow!!!

OMG PANIC IN DC!

ok now that were done panicking... whos brewing

I wasn't planing on it, but DC cant deal with .5 inches of snow... and were looking at 10-18 inches..... so, cant leave the house!

Thinking Ill redo a Scottish 60! I have my Edinburgh yeast, but no starter....not much point in making one tomorrow for 4 hours later.

I would use a pre-boil volume of about 1-2 quarts less than expected to compensate for all the snow your going to boil.

Also you should make it a winter beer and call it snowkitten.

Good luck, guys. I'll be thinking about you brave MD/DC area snow brewers while I'm warm inside, reading How To Brew by the fire as I smoke my pipe and quaff a nice mug of apfelgrog. Know that I would be among you if circumstances allowed.

Godspeed.

It's coming down in western NC right now. Large, beautiful flakes. It's supposed to dump snow like this for 24 hours+

I know you midwesterners don't want to hear this, but I'm loving it!
