Sounds tasty!

Man, every time I see other brew setups and locations I get jealous. Brewing on the back patio and then having to haul things back and forth to the kitchen and finally out to the front of the house to clean is getting old. I need a bigger place...stupid housing market!!!

I actually just moved into this house last month - this is my second brewday. In my old house I was brewing in the detached garage, so I'd have to keep running back and forth across the (usually muddy) yard for things I forgot.

This is much nicer My plan eventually is to move indoors completely and have an electric brewery in the laundry room.

I'm in a townhouse, but all my brew gear is upstairs in my pseudo man cave, if that's what you can call it. So, I'm back and forth between there and the patio as I realize I left things upstairs. I have to pack it all up when I'm done and haul it back up and take the burner out to the detached garage here and haul the kettle and such out front to clean. Sounds like a better setup where you're at. Enjoy the rest of the brewday!

Do I hear bagpipes on your video??!?!?

EDIT: Ah, Man Skirt Brewing now it makes sense!

Yeah, we went from Metallica to Avenged Sevenfold to Scottish Pipes and Drums, and we're now listening to Flogging Molly.
