Thundersnow isn't cool. It's scary! Had some here a few weeks back. It was almost 70 the day before, about 55 at 6 am and snowing by around 3.
The only thing worse than dumping beer is serving beer you should have dumped.

We got a measly 6 inches today (thats what she said) so no hopes of being snowed in. May brew a Hefe tomorrow, but will probably save the money and buy another keg instead brewed the last 3 weekends in a row

I'm in saguenay, QC, Canada, and while it is not snowing right now it is like -35 C (-27.5F) outside... without wind chill. Glad I switched to indoors electric brewing !!!

Soo , tomorrow i'll brew a Blonde Ale to replenish my kegerator. This kind of brew goes fast with all those BMC friends coming over every weekend...

Happy brewing to all of you !

Cheers !

Snowed in..... And reading the two homebrew books I just got, surfing the forum, and watching brew videos
. Everything I look at, I think... "I can ferment that!"

In the middle of a blizzard right now. It's saying 7 F and blowing and snowing like a %^&&$#. Could be up to 28 inches total.

I'm not brewing but almost at the point of dry hopping my best bitter as primary ferm is slowing. I also started drinking my 3 week bottled Wit. It's darn good.

Yes, he likes beer

Not snowing today,but icy & cold. I think I used too much DME in the 800mL starter I made yesterday. It still has krausen & the yeast isn't settling out yet. Still gotta go get another pound of plain light DME I accidentally used for the starter. Was supposed to use the extra light.

Just mashed in and then spent an hour shoveling snow. So much for drinking while brewing.
I'm a bit crazy...about beer.
