It's +1c today and that's way below normal, spent a few hours in the hot tub at 102f to warm up after running a 25gal batch of sugar wash.
Install a hot tub in the still room?

I am glad my set up is electric and I can do my runs inside my outbuilding. I am not sure if the cause is the many fires we have had in the PNW but we have had huge storms more than usual causing power outages and damage due to wind damage and fallen trees.

Lol! Holy crap, the mind is racing now...if I do a 1200L mash...how do I get the corn out of the tub later......

I wonder if anybody makes a paint strainer for 200# of corn so I can do a "tea bag"...

Oh, and no, the 114L still is in the garage, the tub is behind the house overlooking the lake.
