Brewing Dirktastic

With a high pressure system sitting squarely above Ohio, the weather here in Paradise has been just below the Blast Furnace level. So I though I would have an early brew day, starting at 6 am, and brew when it was cool. Unfortunately, it was 79°F with 85% humidity.

So I loaded up the mash tun to brew Dirktastic again. My last couple of batches, the OG has been predicted to be 1.049, instead of the recipe's 1.056. But Macht's Nicht, right?And when I got 1.046 instead, that sweat on my upper lip wasn't from nerves, it was bumping 95°. When I got everything put up, I was covered in sweat, and smelled as bad as my neighbor's sheep pen.
