Default Propane Burner and Wind

Don't know if this goes in this part of the forum or not but today it's going to rain all day so I'm postponing my brewing till tomorrow. The only problem is tomorrow there is going to be 25 mph winds most of the day. I don't know if it is save or not to use a propane burner in that level of wind. Any ideas?

Get a couple pieces of scrap plywood and set up a wind screen.

It's safe, but you might want to set up some sort of wind block, to keep it from blowing out, or taking forever.

I've been wanting to construct some sort of wind shield like bradsul's, but haven't yet. I've just been using a camp chair as a wind block and it seems to help.

I haven't measured, but it seems that evaporation rates are quicker in the cold and wind. I think my last 60 minute boil went from 7-4.5 gallons.

Is there any bad effects on your garage door if you do it inside the garage?

Bad effects on the garage door??? Like catching it on fire???

As long as you keep the door open a foot or so and provide adequate ventilation you should be fine.
