Have a couple dumb questions here. Recently bought a new house, and as such would like to limit my indoor brewing activities to keep the kitchen nice and orderly.
1. Where do y'all direct the outlet water from your immersion chillers? When I brewed in my apartment, I would simply run it down the sink, but now that I'm connecting up to the garden hose outside, I haven't figured out what to do aside from clumsily filling up buckets with water and periodically dumping the water onto plants. This activity keeps me quite occupied and doesn't allow me much time to stir the wort or move the chiller up & down to ensure rapid chilling.
2. How do y'all make your yeast starters outside? I used to do it on the stove, but now I'd like to do it outside. I can't quite place my flasks on my propane burners as they are too small to fit on the platform. Was considering buying a camping stove of sorts expressly for this purpose, but it seems a bit wasteful.
That's all for now... any tips for me? Thanks!
