Default So.... (winter brewing)

Anyone got any suggestions? hehe

Dude. I was out with people camping today. Way colder than 40F and soaking wet with rain.

You are dry, indoors. Dress properly and have a few brews.

I brewed last night low 40's if that it wasn't fun but I've brewed in colder. 8 degrees it was a kit beer. Now I do ag with a batch sparge. So the same idea was runni g through my head.

I have a detached garage. No heat or water. I figure I can take buckets out but my main concern is wort chillng. Don't want a ice rink in the driveway and garage.

Silly ill be in snow with freezing temps and my main concern is chilling my wort... Not keeping warm!

Boil inside late after she's sleeping with the bedroom door closed, that's how I get away with brewing inside when it's nasty outside

I have kinda a sun room on the back of my house. it's heated and it has a gas fireplace out there. i was thinking of brewing in there.

the smell would stay out there. but i'm worried about boil over and burning the carpet. it has 5 sliding doors so i could easily open one or multipe to air any concern of Burning propane exhaust.

I guess i could lay a sheet of plywood down and put my turkey fryer on top of that. I could then run a hose right to my drain and then no concern of ice. humm....
