Planned on brewing an ESB this pat weekend, but the weather in SE Mich refused to cooperate. My starter was ready, so I decided tonight was the night. Just after I came up to boil, the rain started. So, here I am, running in and out, a little damp, but, the brew WILL go on!!!!

Kudos for perseverance! Now you just need some ugly junk to keep your boil kettle happy.

Rain has let up for now. I've been wetter. Time for more hops in a few. A couple of glasses of Apflewien have made the weather the more bearable!!!!

Personally, when it was snowing last winter I preferred to be outisde brewing, (assuming snow has the same makeup as rain) I say keep on brewing no matter what mother nature throws at ya! In any case, whatever rain hits the brew will be boiled anyway, so no worries.
