We made an extract beer this time around because there was literally a blizzard going on at the time of this brew. People were worried about their cars getting too snowed in to go home, so we opted for the shorter brew with no mash. Possibly related to that, the internet at the space wasn't working during this brew, which is why the notes for this were carried around in my pocket for 4 months before I actually got around to creating this wiki page. :-)
