Anyone got theirs outside? Am debating whether to bring my cornys in: temps hit 3 degrees here this morning - enough for cars to be frozen over.
Mine always live outside (after the initial fermentation).

Its just like Spartan warrior babys!
Remember: The Nationals are just round the corner - time to get brewing

I let mine ferment in the drum it came in as I had no time to even think about putting it elsewhere...now fermentation is pretty much done I need to move it elsewhere.

I have a spare pressure barrel, I assume this may work as a storage location? Alternatively I could just put it into a carboy and shove a bung in and leave it..

I did notice though a slight worrying sheen on the surface.  Link to a picture with the flash on...

carboy or demi putting are better, the absolute max in it without touching the bung

Thanks CH.  I have attached a pic to my original post.

I think the quicker I move it the better..
