Our The Kitchen is one of the areas that has an area host here at PS:One. The current Area Host is [[User:ad9581|Arturo Duarte]]. The kitchen aka:[[Pumping Station: Yum]] was built out of necessity to have a place to cook and started out by having a hot plate, a broken microwave and a broken refrigerator at a corner of the workshop. Additionally we built a place to ferment beer in the SW corner of the kitchen that can hold up to 12Kegs and thus was born [[Beer Church]]. The kitchen is enclosed by steel stud partition walls on the North and East sides and structural CMU walls on the South and West.{{Infobox HostedArea| image = Kitchen_June_38,_2014.jpeg| areaname = Kitchen| hostedsince = June 16, 2014| location = 1st Floor Between Lounge and Shop area | toolcategory = [[:Category:Kitchen Equipment]]| hostname = [[User:ad9581|Arturo Duarte]]| hostphone = (312)217-0668| hostemail =| hostother = N/A| hosthours = By appointment| hostcerts = By request during office hrs or by appointment}} == The ''YUM'' future ==[[File:Sketch1.jpeg|thumb|left|alt=A simple layout of how the West side of the kitchen will be organized. |A simple layout of how the West side of the kitchen will be organized ''AKA: [[Beer Church]]''.]] It has been repeatedly stated that the kitchen is not as often used compared to other spaces.  In the future, the kitchen will offer more opportunities than just cooking, it will give science and curiosity and opportunity to explore other areas of physics, chemistry, as well as horticulture. the space is rather ad hoc so farslowly undergoing changes to help support hacker cooks and applied science programs, it will become a space not only for cooks but there for future of scientists, engineers, curious people who know nuffin' bout nuffin'. Currently it is a place to cook and converse with like minded individuals and as the developing infrastructure progresses it will be become a room to safely and responsibly make things like soap, molecular gastronomy, and explode things in an exploding chamber, or have fun with chemistry or electrify your food, WHO KNOWS POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!  Additions to the West part of the kitchen are big plans in to make the works for adding walls fermentation chamber smaller and consolidating with more compact than it currently is, a much more controlled envirnment that doubles as counterspace, it will also be moved to the Brewing north side of that areavs. We already where it is now on the south.    On the South CMU wall will be storage space for your cooking storage needs, cubicle boxes for things you do not want to share with other fellow members, ideas have at least been tossed around to make refrigerated cubicles as well. Storage units will range for about $5 and proceeds will help run the kitchen.    On the West wall will be Beer Church storage, much of the items that make beer church function will be placed along the wall. Ryan Pierce is currently working on a beer sculpure called 'The Beer Cathedral'.   The idea of the whole West part of the kitchen is for it to not only be storage and a fermentation chamber but as well as a library and snack area, partially a science area with an exploding chamber in one piece of equipment which requires certificationthe cubicles.     == Area Rules ==<ol><li>Clean up after yourself, if you see others not doing so please politely ask them to.</li> <li>Cook Things, a small supply of snacks is there for members of PS1 and their friends, suggested donation is $1</li> <li>Follow the fridge regulations</li> == Fridge Regulations == Click [ HERE] to view the google doc version of the rules. === Storage === How to store:Make sure you properly store your items, we have resealable bags in the drawers, we have some containers as well. Meats and produce.
