I currently brew 5 gallon extract batches, and while brewing in the kitchen works, getting to a boil takes forever on the electric range as does chilling the wort with ice bags in the sink. I sense the entire process could be made faster and more efficient with a few upgrades - most notably a propane burner and a wort chiller of some kind, the first of which requires a move outdoors. My deck is just outside my kitchen, so that is the most logical place to go, but I would appreciate hearing from some of you who have made similar moves, what you learned, and what you might do differently if you were making the move all over again. Much appreciated.
