General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Stoopid Polar Vortex!
« on: January 25, 2014, 02:23:01 PM »
When I read that we're in for potentially weeks of bitter cold weather in NY all I could think was..."man I can brew a lot of lagers now."

+10 I live in NE Wisconsin; polar vortex bring it on! I have 5 years of firewood and 2 years of propane. The
vortex is saving me money on heating fuel and homebrewing. I'm currently on my second pint and saving money
as I rattle the keyboard. On a side note, the Mrs and I toast the house up on some Saturdays and walk around
in our underwear in the winter. It's just one reason we love living in the woods. Life is grand!

How much firewood and propane is that, exactly?

That looks like it was a lot of fun. Very cool!

As long as it tastes good, that's all that matters.

Nice article. If I had unlimited funds I would try that Zymatic thing.

If it were me I would have pitched it to a small starter just for the hell of it.

Here is a man who knows how to take lemons and make lemonade. Or, um, weird-ass beer

Well, maybe I will start to sanitize the caps then.

Yeah, it's only been a week. Give it some time... let it carb.. then try it. But I'm guessing it may still be a bit malty no matter how long it ages.

Do you sanitize the caps before you cap your bottles? I don't, but I'm wondering if I should. No problems so far but I'm curious what you other bottlers do.

If people don't want to drink my amazing beer, it's ok with me. That just means more for the rest of us.

Glad so many people liked the post. I thought it was a really unique beer story.

My Grandfather fought in WW2 also, but he was on the other side. He was in a Hungarian section of the German army on the Russian front. He told us some amazing stories.

My other Grandfather was in WW1! On the Allied side.
