Im all about the cold temps...but thats a bit extreme...

My garage is perfect temperature for fermenting lagers without any chambers now, like a consistent 46-50 degree's...

9 degrees isn't really extreme

2 weeks ago i brewed at -25C (-13F). (Mash indoors though)

Don some warm clothes, spare propane tank in case it freezes up, and throw snowballs at the kids outside during the boil. It's not too bad

I'm going to brew in 30-35 degree weather in a few days if I don't get lazy. Only thing thats going to be interesting is that the hose I use for my chiller is frozen as I forgot to drain it last brew day

I once brewed 10 gals of lager in my garage, so cold that fermentation took 3 weeks. I went to bottle it using jug and funnel and the jug broke a thin sheet of ice on the top. I bottled it - and it was fine.

I was thinking this... why bother with the chiller when you can just stick it outside?

heh, did the same thing this winter. just bring it inside the day before so it has a chance to thaw out. might need to use a hair dryer or bucket of warm water on the spigot if that froze, too.

I've done a few brew days in our detached garage at about 30F and I was bitching about the cold. you guys are hardcore!

The snow actually insulates really well...a faster option is to put snow & water in a bucket and keep it moving around your kettle
