Eff HOA's. I am SO SO SO glad I bought a home without one. We have a "neighborhood association" but there are no rules, and no fees (optional donations only)

I have had a pile of dirt in my driveway for the better part of 5 months now. And I brew out in the garage/driveway everytime.

50A GFCI and a control box and those Blichmanns become mean electric brewing machines

Not to be petty, but I can sure play that game if they want to. You may not be able to beat the system, but you sure can break it. I would look at the handbook and report every single infraction that I saw. Hey, it's their rules. If they are going to be [email protected] about it then I can be a bigger one.

I'm not sure why people choose to live like rats stacked on top of each other in places like townhomes but if you accept that type of lifestyle, you deserve what you get. So just brew indoors. In the wintertime I brew 6 gallon all grain indoors on my electric stove, granted it is more powerful than the average stove and takes a little longer to get to a boil than my propane burner but once it gets there it works just fine.

+1, a lot of people seem to need a LOT of rules and regulations governing their every move in order for them to survive.

Some of us really have no choice. Now, I wouldn't say I live "like a rat stacked on top of" one another but I do live in a single-family home housing development with an HOA (OK, really nothing like rats on top of each other but still much closer to my neighbors that what I like so hear me out). I grew up in the country and still love the country but there are no engineering jobs in the country (at least around here). So, I am forced to live here in order to make the nice income that I do. The HOA doesnt care about anything in my community. The fees are low and the hassle is non-existent and I can always drive the 1+ hours back home to let loose and get away but my point is that not everyone "choose" to live where they do...

The problem is Nosy Nelly can see you. Just lower the door to about knee high. That leaves room to ventilate but not observe.

Dude, if you need a place to do a big brew then I have a house plus neighbors who mind their own business plus a big backyard with a 6' privacy fence. PM me if you want to do a big batch.

P.S. I have no AG equipment lol

Dude, people live where they can afford. No need to be vindictive. If you want to take care of the down payment on a half-acre property with two yards and a four-car garage for the OP, nothing's stopping you.
