I've been waiting for the weather to become ideal for brewing here in Southern California. I have ingredient I need to use and let's face it, brewing is just plain fun. Unluckily for me, I broke my hand in four places last week and just had surgery on it. Now I have to wait 6-10 weeks to brew again. Super bummed out!

I'm sure you could recruit some slave labor in exchange for the beer that's being made.

Waitting for the weather?
How hot is it in your house in the summer? No A.C. I assume?
Up here in the Northwest there isn't much weather that you can't brew in as long as your heater works!
I do have to set the brew pot up in just the right spot on the patio under the deck off the 2nd floor to keep the rain from filling it as I boil though. You know, start with 6 gallons and boil it down to 7 because the rain is filling it up.

We have AC, but in the summer it usually stays around 80-82 in the house as it is usually 110+ outside. Today (nov. 1) is was 78 inside.
