Did a Vienna lager, finished up around 1:00 am this morning; Usually, I'll start around midnight, for my work schedule. but with the weather dropping into the low teens and raging wind, got water measured, treated and grain crushed yesterday morning, and started at 6:00 pm, to get ahead of the game. all my hoses and such were frozen by 9.
It got ugly around 11, with the bitter cold and wind, so just hunkered down in the garage for the most the brew session. Hit all my numbers on the nose! extra added bonus, the ground water temp was in the 40s, so the wort chilled in no time: from a boil to 55 in 20 minutes.
