happening:



Blew the hose right off the chiller, apparently the hose froze at the other end (discharge end)

I knew there was a reason I live in Northern California and each time I hear how cold the east and midwest get I love CA even more.

I like that when tragedy strikes you pull out the camera.

I'm a photographer by trade lol I'm always doing this lol. The only time I didn't is when I dumped 10 gallons of 190 degree water on my left foot

And yes there is permanent nerve damage..... Oh well never brew only wearing socks

Brewed in that temp last night! Sucks but what can you do. We've been having a nasty cold spell out here in Utah lately.

I had to toss clamps on the hoses that attached to my chiller last week. It got so cold that it just contracted and popped off with a little pressure.

Adversity makes better beer, or at least that's what I keep telling myself.....

Cold brewing certainly has its advantages...

Chilling is SO much easier, especially with snow/ice and an immersion pump. Boiling to 48F in under 10 mins? Yes please.

Ferm temp control...many of us ferment in our garages. Colder garage = easy lagering.

I welcome the change in seasons as an excuse to brew different styles, i.e., lagers.
