- It's hot here. The highs bump 100° f with humidity in the 60s. I'd have to start brewing at midnight to finish before it got to hot, and I'm not that dedicated. I do not have a fermentation fridge, and the coolest room in the house fluctuates from 72° and 78°. (Ah the joy of living in a 1940s, uninsulated frame home!)
- I have five full kegs in the fridge: CYBI Bam Biere Clone, Bugeaters Rye Cream Ale target="new", Kölsch I Said So, Roger's Red Mild Ale, and Belgian Bombshell. It'll take me a while to work my way through it.
- I can't decide what to brew next. I want to brew Donn's Famous Horse Cram It In Brown Ale, Shadow Warrior, and another Saison du Permienne, but I can't decide what to brew first.
- Finally, we are in Stage 4 water restrictions about to move to Stage 5. Since it takes about 15 gallons of water to make 6 gallons of beer, I probably should be a little more considerate.
