Default Brewing outside

I am planning my first batch and I want to do the boiling on my propane burner and cooling with a wort chiller on my back porch. Then I want to take it to the basement for transferring to my primary fermenter. Does anyone think that is a bad idea?

Seems like it would be easier to transfer to your fermenter on the back patio then just carry the fermenter down to the basement. Thats the way I do it at least.

I'd run tubing down there and gravity feed it to the basement!

tflew- do you add your yeast outside or once it's inside?

I only brew outside, on the driveway in good weather, in the garage in the winter with the door partially open. I've never had any issues with any part of the process,save for maybe a falling leaf or several in the fall!

Like duboman, I brew in the garage during winters here in MI. When I'm done and the wort is cooled I load the kettle into my wagon, wheel it it to the back door and carry it in. Everything else is done indoors.

Actually, I basically do EVERYTHING outside from set up to clean up, the only things that go back inside are the full primary, blow off rig, and the empty flask from the starter-everything else gets stored on my brew rig in the garage.

Mash, brew, cool and pitch outdoors. Then carry the bucket indoors to ferment.

Same here, my last brew day was 20 degrees, but that just made me appreciate the beer more.
