Maybe cal ale yeast wasn't appropriate.

Even if it were 65, I doubt Cal Ale yeast would be appropriate in the boil.

That is definitely an advantage. If you can keep the hose from freezing, using your IC chiller outside and you've got a wicked fast chill!

I did a brew sub-0 the other day. Not fun!

You get insane boiloff, but cooling it is nice. I just ran a hose from the sink out the window, left the pot outside in the cold wind.

Last Saturday I was able to bring 12 gallons of boiling brown ale wort down to 70 degrees with tap water through an IC in 15 minutes.

On another note, we got 5 inches of snow last night and 8-14 on the way for Thursday night into Friday. After last winter's 100+ inches, I'm still a little weary of snow.
