Brewing Today - Small problem - Need help

I’m brewing today, as I type in fact. I don’t have a place to brew indoors/garage, and it is now pouring rain. And I mean buckets. I turned off the gas, put the lid on the pot, and came inside.

There is no way to protect it from the rain

I have my flask full of yeast, I have my pot full of wort.

Do I not worry about the rain?

Do I dump it all, or can I save it in a carboy and bring it to a boil tomorrow and re-start the process?

Thanks

I’ve decided that all water is rain at one point in another in the cycle.

Full speed ahead, damn the torpedoes.

Little rain isn’t going to hurt anything. You made the right choice. But theres no reason to damn the Torpedo, I personally like that beer.

Open the windows, turn on the fans, full speed ahead!

What, no weather channel in your area? :mrgreen:

Personally, I’d bring it in and wait until it stopped raining…and i had 1-2 hours of rain free weather.

good luck,

cheers

Think you’re good. I’ve had to pause and restart a boil before, with absolutely no ill effect (didn’t wait that long, but a couple of hours should be fine).

Ah, the life of a TV weatherman…local celebrity, good pay, only need to be right half the time.

I’ve decided this batch will be called “Rained Out Stout”. Seems appropriate.
