I guess I'm lucky to have a large screened back porch.

You're not the first and you won't be the last. Nice thing about making beer is that we boil the heck out of everything. So more than likely it'll all be fine.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

I sure hope you sanitized that spoon
In their efforts to regulate beer quality, the ancient Babylonians, who were among history's earliest brewers, decreed that any commercial beermaker who sold unfit beer would be drowned in their own libation.

I had my wort nearly chilled when one of those did a kamikaze run into the wort. I grabbed him, wrung the wort out and poured the wort into the fermenter. It turned out just fine.

It doesn't have to just be outside. I was heating up a bit of honey to make a mead the other day and all of a sudden bees come flying through the kitchen window.
