Ever have a huge brew day planned out, just to have freak thunderstorms totally wash it out?

It can be crushingly depressing.

Actually I did get me some lemonade.

No Vodak, though.

I mean... I have it, but alcohol is my happy-time drink. When I'm down... it's not a good thing.

Tomorrow, though. I shall brew.

Oh yes.

I shall brew.

I started a brew in the rain last night - gave up, just heated the wort enough to pasteurise it then left it in the kettle overnight and did the boil today (decent weather). Seems not to have hurt it.
