Well it seems like the forum is working faster now. Man I gave up on it last night it was moving so slow. I guess I have no room to complain since I am not a paying member

Airborne:

I love a nice cigar but I have to tell you I pretty much stop smoking them during the winter. Just to cold to go outside and smoke and I do not smoke in the house. Do not know why just the way I am I guess.

Heck Bobbi you stirred up a hornets nest with your 10 dollar brew thread. I was really enjoying it I was.

That thread kind of opened up my eyes to the differing costs of ingredients around the country. I guess I am pretty lucky to live where I do

I very very rarely smoke outside in the winter either. It's 12 right now, which for us is well below normal. When its in the high 30's, I'll sometimes smoke outside. I also don't smoke in the house, my wife would probably leave me over that!

Winter time we have a beer and cigar night every Friday and luckily we have it in a garage that has a wood stove in it. I will smoke a nice cigar then.

Last week it was -24 I think when I brewed. Pretty much standard for this time of year. I am starting to look forward though to some warmer weather now though. I just checked the temp right now and it is 9 degrees. Pretty much a heat wave

Interesting. With bulk hops, group buys for grain, and reused yeast, I can make 5 gallons of, say, a pilsener for under $5.

I am right at ten bucks for Biermunchers 3c or the recipe I altered for it.

I am surrounded by tons of two row barley and can get all I want for pretty much free. Been trying to get the malting down to where I am consistent but that is not a easy thing. Once I get a system down though sheesh I could make beer for about nothing if I grow my own hops

I am going to try your recipe with the instant rice and grits. I love rice, I love grits, I love beer!! Money's tight!! Gotta do what you can!! Cost is the reason I have not upped production, keep nearly running out of beer. I will fix this problem. More beer, less money.

I don't really smoke much in the winter either, 31.8 degrees when I got up at 5 this morning. Too cold to sit on the porch. 32.4 now... trying to get the fire going on the woodburning stove, the electric heat keeps coming on, I can hear the sound of it draining my wallet.

Well I kind of stole the idea from Biermuncher for that recipe and tweaked it for my taste. Thanks Biermuncher

I keep on looking at my woodpile and wondering if it is going to make it the winter. Man I hope so or I hope it lasts long enough that I can get some more out of sherwood. Jan is our coldest month and things should be warming up soon or so I hope. I am getting cabin fever and want to get outside and start doing stuff

I hear ya, chain slipped on my chainsaw, worn out, need to replace it. Down to chopping the big warped logs. Just keep whacking at it until it eventually splits, but at least, once you get the fire going good, it burns a long time.

Can't wait for spring, start tilling up the gardens.
