      Yellowstone in Winter with so few people around is indescribable. I remember seeing 2 elk standing in the run off of a hot pool. They were covered with icicles and shrouded in steam coming off the hot water....so beatiful..

      Good luck!

      Are you up for an experiment?...

      If you have an extra bucket,put some of your brew in the bucket and add milk to 10% volume and 10% pectin by weight, and put 1 pot in it. The casein and pectin are reported to form a waterproof polymer on the surface of the pot.
