So, two days ago the furnace went out in the house, and true to form it was my woman who noticed it first. While trying to figure out what was wrong with it I placed all of my beer in the closet with an electronically controlled space heater, and turned it up to 70 degrees, so as not to stagnate my beer. I have some freshly bottled, one in the primary, and one in the secondary. Remember that yesterday was a holiday, so getting the appropriate people on the phone was a no go. Over the last two days of of trouble shooting, I have finally called a technician in. My woman shakes her head at the fact the beer is nice and cozy, but we are bundled up by the fire place with it being 45 degrees outside at night. What do you think?

People generate their own heat and only need insulation in order to retain it. Beer isn't that lucky. So, save your homebrew from the cold. If she's really cold you could always suggest a couple of adult activities to get warm.

Throw up the tent, pull out the sleeping bags jump in and generate some heat. What's the problem, it's only 45 degrees.....

I'd be in the closet with the beer and the woman. Warm, drunk, and happy.

It sounds like you got your priorities straight.

My wife would think to do that first, as I'm helping our 1-2 year old children.
(I got her priories, she's got mine...)
