Brewin' in the rain

<< < (2/5) > >>

Slowbrew:
I use a popup awning too.

To battle the wind I made 2 rings out of 10" aluminum flashing.  One fits over my turkey cooker and has a cutout for the burner air/fuel intake.  The other is about 3' in diameter and sits on the ground around the cooker.  It allows enough air in for a good flame but stops the wind gusts from blowing out the burner.

Schucks man - I just put stuff in front it.

Seriously though - the wind (esp. cold wind) sucks. Changes my evaporation rate dramatically unless I keep an eye on the flame. I may have to try your aluminum windbreaker idea!

my first brew with my little electric kettle was on my picnic table. thunder showers started. i unplugged it, carried it to the kitchen and resumed.  watched the rain from inside

In Seattle, brewing in the rain is just called brewing...

This time of year, the Midwesterners are brewing in the snow, too:

This kinda looks like you're brewing in the alley...
