Mr. Mosfet:

Yes, that cold break happens really fast in this weather. What did you brew?

I brewed this:

10.5 lb pale malt
0.5 lb Munich
0.5 lb Crystal 49-64 lb
0.25 lb Carapils 10-15 lb
1 oz ground black patent for improving clarity

Columbus 12.2% 60 min 1 oz
Centennial 9.1% 20 min 1 oz
Amarillo 8.0% 7 min 1oz
Willamette 4.6% 7 min 1/2 oz
Amarillo 8.0% during chill 1 oz
Willamette 4.6% during chill 1/2 oz

Dry Nottingham yeast

Yes, I know that's a lot of hops. I love hops. I tasted the hydrometer. Tasted hoppy.

o.g. 1.048 for 6.5 gallons

How about yourself?

Hops
Name Quantity Form Alpha Stage Time
Cascade 0.75 oz Leaf 7.2 FWH 90
Yakima Magmum 0.18 oz Leaf 14.2 Boil 90
Perle 0.5 oz Leaf 8.2 Boil 90
Cascade 1 oz Leaf 7.2 Boil 15
Cascade 0.75 oz Leaf 7.2 Dry 0
Totals: 3.2 ounces 45.6 IBU

I substituted Goldings for the Yakima because I screwed up my order with Midwest and sparged at way too high a temp because of a lapse in smarts during the brew.

Should turn out ok, although it could be a bit astringent - I'll let you know.

Oh, and while the wort was on the boil out on the deck, I mixed up some of Edwort's Apfelwein.

Both batches are burbling away in the winter fermentarium.

Cheers
