Default Where do you brew?

Easy enough question: where do you brew?

Me, I'm a kitchen dweller, but will make the move to propane fueled full boils soon!

Many partial boil extract and partial mashes in the kitchen on the electric stove, but the last two have been full boils out on the deck (propane burner on concrete stepping stones to protect the deck). I'm never coming back inside to brew.

I have a 2-car garage, but I built a workbench on the side which takes up room so we only keep one car in it. I've since modified the workbench into a workbench/fermentation chamber, and stuck a fridge on one side. All of my brewing equipment gets stored on the shelves until the next brew day. It's a good setup for me, since I brew 10g batches about once a month. Doesn't make sense really to have all that stuff set up and in the way for 30 days out of the month. However, I'd like to get a compact brew stand one of these days...more out of laziness than anything else .

I'm outside in the back yard, but it isn't much to set up. I put my cooler up on blocks on top of the picnic table, drain wort into my kettle on the burner and siphon from kettle to bucket for yeast buffet. Easy gravity ghetto rig.

Same here kitchen dweller for now, but going to buy my outdoor burner and 60qt pot soon, after a couple full 5 gallon boils it will be straight to AG, and after the process is dialed in, 10 gallon batches!

Depends on the beer, time of year, number of yellow jackets, and right now trying to not freak the barn swallows that have clutched on the patio too much. They catch yellow jackets and feed them to the chicks.
