Sorry to pick your brains again brewers, so soon after last time too...but, I did my first bigger batch brew yesterday an 18 litre boil. It was an electric powered mash/ boil kettle by Klarstein. Very nice piece of kit and perfiect for my needs, mashed fine and produced a good vigorous boil, after a bit of tinkering. BUT, I ran into a problem I guess we all face...condensation/ humidity during the boil phase. I used to do my 8 litre batches on a stove top in the kitchen and thought I might get away with it with this new kettle...well, you know what I'm going to say...it got seriously steamy. I had the windows open the extraction fan on but, it was not effective enough. I had to open more doors and windows and in the end the whole house was smelling like a brewery! Not popular/ ideal/ sustainable... From what I've read, it seems that a lot of people do theirs in their garage, but surely the condensation would eventually rot the timbers in there and make everything really damp too. There must be a solution, other than brewing outdoors? Or, do you find brewing near the garage door with the door open enough? Initial thoughts are towards building some kind of extraction hood...but, this will be a pain in the proverbials… As usual all thoughts/ ideas/ opinions greatly appreciated.
