Oh Blessed mother of fermentation, don't fail me now!!!


 ;D ;D ;D

It's 106* till Mash,
we got a full tank of propane,
1/2 oz of hops,
It's dark and we're wearing shades.

Hit it!

We're on a mission from God.

Lord, let it warm up so I fell motivated to brew in the garage.

Lennie - I am not in the Mississippi drainage, so it won't flood you.  28F at 9 AM on April 1, no joke.
Thats OK then, I second your prayer.
Is 28F warm or cold for April 1 in your area?  Its in the low 30's at night here, low 50's as a high.  And that normal, although average in the Missouri springtime comes with a whopping standard deviation.
The low today was 24F, and the average low is 34F, last week the lows were in the 13F to 18F range.  March was much colder than average this year.  March of last year was much warmer than average.
