I did brew...but I also took step 3 in my 12 step plan to have a brew room in the house.

The washer and dryer are now relocated so that I have a 12' x 10' area of the basement with two windows (one for exhaust and one for fresh air) which encloses both the main panel (two spaces available) and the sub panel (2 spaces available but serves the kitchen and one bath). One of two main stacks is less than a foot away and all conduit and plumbing has been made almost flush to to the floor joists above.

Adjacent space is available for a cool room but I am slowly maxing out my 100 Amp service.

The clever part is that I convinced SWBO is was all for her. The W/D are now more convenient and the corner the basement that occasionally gets damp will be a 3/4 bath...in the corner of my brew room.

I'm still banished to the garage with the 4 other guys who brew here. Gotta figure out a good balance between keeping the garage warm and not dying of carbon monoxide poisoning this winter!

Working! I work every weekend, but have mon-thurs off unless I go in and work overtime. Thats why I'm always brewing mid week.

Oh, I am too...notice I mentioned the 12 steps...only on step 3. Step 11 is telling my darling wife whatthis has all been for. Step 12 is either divorce or do the happy dance followed by brewing indoors.

18 F and windy, brewing outdoors is difficult but it only added 45 minutes to the total brew time because chilling happened so fast!.

Instead of brewing - I will be prepping for finals.

Don't be jealous....

I think the wife and I will go rock hunting-there are some nice chunks of petrified wood to be found an hour north of here.
