Don't forget, he is also using a brew pot as a helmet to protect his brain from hail damage!

That is taken from my computer chair.
I put the mash water on then give up. I was tempted to do a late night session but I'm tired and I'd probably start making silly mistakes.

I'll try again in the morning.

I took the opportunity to clean my stores cupboard and make a couple of additions to the temporary brew set up.

"Straight Outta Hail".

That would be a good beer name.

It's cleared up now but it's too late.

orfy - That really sucks,
I just wanted to ask, you have a great garden / backyard setup but WHERE ARE THE HOP VINES? I would have expected a wall between you and your neighbour. You know, the whole "tall fences make good neighbour's" thing.

The hops used to be on the back fence an the took over everything each year. This year I moved them. On is on the front and grows through a privet. The other is in a raised bed on a neighbours garage wall. It not doing anything like it did last year but it's getting there.

Look for the first fence panels and you can see them growing on a twine.

Rain isn't a problem assuming you have a little cover. I would take it over hot weather any day.

Currently we are hitting the high 90's low 100's with animals at the fair which leads to giving baths to the animals and providing water almost hourly to keep them hydrated.
