it is about 30 yards from house but my electric panel is on the opposite side of my house.
I had mentioned earlier that I will be wiring the shed. I had thought about running a bigger wire to my garage and then using a 60amp panel in my garage and run wire to my shed.
But after talking to my electrician friend he think for saving me money we can just wire the shed to my garage, then if I want to upgrade in the future I could do the 60amp panel thing but it is costly.
So even though I will have a few plugs and lights in the shed I will not have a 30amp dryer type plug to run those big electric heaters..
So thinking about the gas burner way still, but am still in planning stages so anything can change.

The pex will terminate with a ball valve on the outside of the shed. From there it will be a matter of running my rv hose from the shed to the house on brewdays. When I am done, i can drain all the lines so no freezing.
I have a laundry tub basin sink that was given to me I want to hook up now out in the shed.
I think we agree running the hose is a more cost effective way.
but you say use 1/2" pex in the brew wall?
what is that?
Also how will you drain all the lines so they do not freeze?
Even the hose after rolling it up?
just trying to figure out how this will all work..
ok so I have a hose coming to the shed./
how should it enter?
how should I pipe it to the sink?
I already have a plan for the sink drain. as long as it is at a slope all the water should drain out fine.
