01.01.2015 Brew day Cold, brisk & sunny was the environment we working in for the first brew session of the year. In previous cold weather brewing we had trouble with keeping a boil on the burner. Today using the Blichmann we had no problem keeping a rolling boil in 10 degrees ( 0 degree wind chill) weather. A beautiful thing. We had help in the kitchen, tying off hop bags and coffee bags. We unloaded 1 lb. whole bean light roast coffee at the end of boil, so we wanted to make sure we had those under control. Worked out perfect and smelled amazing on a cold winter day. The wort cooled super fast and we had it cellared within 4 hours of our start. We had a couple brews from the tap our oatmeal brown. A good brew session to start the year.
