Was going to brew last night right when I got home from work. Well I got home from work, got kind of busy and didn’t get a chance to right away. about 7-8pm my wife noted the house seems kind of warm. Sure enough, the air conditioner has gone on the fritz.
No big deal, temps are in the low to mid 80’s, so it is bearable until someone can come out today with a normal service fee. BUT had I brewed as planned, I would be been placing an emergency call at 11pm last night just to save the beer. The basement (with AC running) gets to a perfect 63-64 degrees. without it, was in the mid to upper 70’s if not a bit higher
Yes I would of paid for an overtime extra fee - not for the comfort of the family ('eh, they will live) but if my beer needed it, boy does the checkbook come out But again, luckily nothing in the fermentor. I will have them come out then brew another day.
