Default Crappy brew day!

Started my mash last night just about the time I found out it was going to snow figured I could wake up early and beat the snow. No luck! Anyway how is everyone else's brew day going.

-13 F here this A.M. Going to be -10 tonight. Good thing still brew inside, eh? Went to see the movie 8 Below today with the kids and spent 2 hours watching it blow and snow in Antarctica. When the movie ended and we got outside the theater it didn't seem any different than the movie!

Still planning to make a kolsch tomorrow and also bottle my porter.

Mine is in the primary and I am waiting for the air lock to commence bubbling.

As far as a weather update, no snow in sight in Philly but it will be COLD tonight! Single digits around my house, it looks like.

25 F here in the Dallas area tonight. On the way down to 22 it looks like. Amber Ale is on the stove now. Just added the bittering hops.

I really shouldn't mention this but it's 12:30 AM and my thermometer outside reads 70 f right now.

Not bad here in MA, about 20*F and clear. I will be brewing today or tomorrow. Most likely today, though, as I have never brewed in daylight, so I might try that out.
