Default It's gonna rain, should I brew??

Do you guys ever brew in the rain? I have a garage and based on radar, I'll be finishing up my boil right when it rolls in at 2pm so I'll be able to roll my rig back into the garage for the cooldown.

Thoughts?

Tim

if I brew under the garage door I get condensation on the metal door which drips back into the boil, so ~I claim my recipe is unique.....

Same here. I wheel the rig to the door and brew. Snow? Just crack the door a foot and go to town....

I brew in the garage with the door open as well. Even in the winter when it's 30*F outside.

It's the only time I'm happy to have a car port. That and bbq in the rain. In central Florida it's also the only time it cools down, just be done before it stops and gets hot and humid!

I ended up NOT brewing....

I couldn't get motivated. A buddy of mine stopped by last night and stayed til 2am talking. This morning the wife was at the gym and we have 2 kids, so I couldn't get out there and get it going while she was gone.

Eh, I'll do it next Saturday.

But now you guys got me thinking. The garage in the middle of winter isn't a bad idea.

I am brewing in the rain for the first time today... No complaints yet. We have a decent size porch!
