Last brew day was July 30, so 6+ months of no brewing. Made Martin's dry Irish stout discussed a couple of weeks ago and then on the home page yesterday. In the future, please remind not to brew at night, outside in February, when it's 25-30 degrees out, with a new kettle on a recipe I haven't made before. Yes, I should have known that already. Damn cold made for a long night: long time to heat strike water, not so bad for sparge, and then I must have bumped my regulator getting kettle up to a boil. Got same temp reading twice about 20 minutes apart, so that made it take almost an hour to get to a boil. With the extreme cold, I missed final volume by almost a gallon and OG by 7 points. But at least I got a brew day in!
