Brewin' in the rain

Very nice.  I also have a Bbq smoker and have been known to multitask brewing and ribs together. Awful hard to beat !

Those are some of the best days!

Especially when the beer and ribs come out great, and I have a prior batch on tap to serve with the bbq ! Hard to keep the neighbors away at that point!

Brewing in the rain sucks - especially after the boil...

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



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

That's my backyard, man!

Its actually a hell of a find. Great area in the middle of the city with about 150 feet of backyard. I brew on the small wood deck that extends from the house.

Well that's a huge backyard.  150 feet is deeper than our entire lot.

I got nothing against alleys.  I spend a lot of time in our alley, but less so since I replaced my old car.  I think its the long fence line that makes me think alley.

Yes...I'll be brewing in my unheated garage tomorrow morning. It'll be about 19F when I start. Here's what it looked like this morning. Some homebrewers are diehards I suppose.  :)

Instant heat with my bajo burners though...

Muddy looks happy.  I think I may give it a this weekend as well.  Just need to thaw out my hose for the chiller and turn on the outside water.  Another reason to go electric!
