I have been away from brewing for some time and would like to get started again. Unfortunatel my current home has a TINY kitchen. I am looking into the option of brewing in an outbuilding. The building is enclosed on three sides. It is currently very dusty & full of cobwebs. I have concerns as to how well I can clean and maintain the space. Am I overly concerned?
I can sweep & hose it down but there is no way I can maintain the sanitary level that I used to when brewing in my old kitchen. I was pretty severe when it came to cleaning etc.

Also, I have only one 20A electrical outlet and a garden hose for power & water.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Steve

I brew outside all the time. Get yourself a turkey fryer burner and get to it!

Don't sweat the small stuff. Sanitation is important, but it is not the boogeyman some people make it out to be. I brew outside all of the time and have had leaves, bees, etc... land in my wort. Still good beer.

I pull the cars out of the garage and brew on a turkey fryer. Works great!

Hmmmm... "Try McBrew's Oak Leaf Amber it's got Bzzzz"


Thanks Everyone for the input. I am going to give it a try.

To simplify the bottling task I am thinking about bottling in 32oz resealable Growlers. Any thoughts or suggestions there??

Thanks again

Steve

I just brew out on my patio, and I've brewed in parking lots. Don't worry about it.
