I've moving my brewing outdoors for the first time and was wondering if this location was ok. The burner flame ends up being above the retaining wall. I could get the burner a little higher. This is in between our house and the neighbors. The neighbors said it's fine with them.

It's level and stable. Space is kind of limited, especially if we want to let my 16 month old son hang out in the yard while brewing. This is outside of the fenced in backyard.

Not sure what your asking about? It's certainly far enough away from any structures. Only thing I can see is you might want to have the wall provide some wind break.

Wasn't sure if the wall counted as a structure or not, to be honest.

As long as the wall isn't flammable it's fine, if its flammable it might catch afire

I brew on the threshold in my garage. You seem to be doing it much safer.

I brew under my back porch. You are fine.

Make sure to put your burner in a covered spot when you are done so it doesn't rust.

Thanks guys, I feel better about my spot. The wall is not flammable

I plan to keep the burner in my basement when it's not being used.
