Don't try this

Post by Meatymc » Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:20 am

I strongly recommend you don't try and replace a rotten single pane garage window with a new yet smaller double glazed version when you expect to use said garage for brewing that same weekend.

Forecast 3 fine days this last weekend so thought I'd be able to get the old window out, new stonework in to match up to the smaller window size and the new window in, fixed and sealed - leaving plenty of time to do a 5 gallon IPA.

Started raining at noon on day one and stopped around midnight last night - plus it was 'frickin freezing' thoughout #-o and of course there was the rugby to watch. Suffice to say the window is only partially in.

The beer got brewed though - priorities, priorities :D

You should have left the window out, nice bit of ventillation for boil :)

It was out when I brewed mate - hence the 'frickin freezing'!!!
