They are calling for 60s this weekend (in Missouri) and I'm off Sunday and Monday. I just bottled 10 gallons this past Monday and another batch is waiting on a keg to blow so my pipeline is basically empty. I just need to decide between

German pils
Wheat stout or
Bourbon vanilla porter

I also have 40lbs of 2row and a bunch of assorted hops coming from Farmhouses Black Friday

Simcoe
EKG
Chinook
Zythos
Cascade

So many options if only the weather holds and the rain stays off till tues. My last two days I've had available to brew have been rained out the one before that I walked into the basement to start my preps and found a river running actoss the floor from the water heater. So I'm prayin for this weekend to work out with no surprises.

Do you brew in the basement? I've brewed in the rain before and it was fun! We never get rain here.

No brewing in the basement. With no garage my walkout basement does double duty and has way to much stuff in it. I also don't have a good way to ventilate.

Yeah, calling for nice weather up here too...but I actually hope not. Have an ice fishing trip planned for mid-December and it's pretty hard to ice fish without ice (or ai least reasonably safe ice, as far as "safe" ice goes).

You would love it on the Washington coast!
I get to brew in the rain about ten months of the year.
I get to work in it also.
We've had a couple inches in the last 24 hours. Brewing wind also.
Nothing like a 50 MPH wind to help that rain get places it couldn't get on it's own.

Can you send some of that water this way? They are predicting record lows on the Mississippi. Not good for the local shipping industry.

So much for sunny. Partly cloudy & on the cool side of warm in the middle of the day. Frost & colder than a well digger's backside in the morning.
