What's This? A Homebrewing Post?

Since it's been so hot here in Paradise, I've been putting off brewing.  While I have figured out how to chill my wort in this heat, I also need to do it on our Stage Four Water Restriction watering day, Monday.

Since watering has to be finished by 10 am, that means I need to start cooling by, say 8:30 am in case of problems.  So I should start brewing by 5 am.

I need to brew Shadow Warrior again (I'm almost out!), and I need to do a Christmas beer or two, as well.  And I will be running low on drinkables.  So first, Old MILFwaukee Blonde Ale, then Randy Mosher's Christmas Ale, then Dirktastic, then Shadow Warrior.

The recipe for the first brew:
