Another Chicago brewer here...today was really nice. Wish I weren't stuck at work all day. I plan on brewing on Sunday, but I do indoors in the winter using 2 burners on the gas stove.

As a Chicago native, I am amazed that I see no white stuff in the background of your photo. It is January, right????

What....you're wishing for snow??????

I haven't wished for snow since I had "snow days" off from school as a kid.

Exactly. My kids are driving me crazy without the snow. We gave them all sleds for Christmas this year and haven't been able to use them yet.

Not too bad out here in the boondocks, either [about 25 miles east of Rockford], but that's all gonna change later today. We have NOT been below zero in about two years, but we're looking at -5° for a low Monday night. So, if you're brewing outdoors, do it today!
