New Brewery!

Putting the finishing touches on finally moving my brewing to the basement. I can't explain how psyched I am!

Hot dam.. I myself am a home brewer, I love making my own beer and wine, much cheaper and you can make what you want.. Ive got a metal from a DC Home brewers Comp for Stout's for my Coffee Creame Stout, the guy that tought me wone grand cfhampion in 07 for his IPA.. One time we decided to make a brew that involved one ingrediant that you would never imagine, I made a stout with Count Chocola cereal, came out great.. A friend made a IPA with Mt Dew, Awsome, and my roomate made an ale with somehting but cant rememeber what he used.. One day Ill get my liecence and start a Cafe with home brew, I love cooking also

thanks. I'm pretty psyched. Most of my brewing is english styles. I do a fair amount of cask conditioning, in real casks, and, belgian ales. Looking forward to not having to deal with frozen hoses anymore in my garage!

That is a nice set up.

I brew 5-10 gallon batches on a cobbled together RIMS system and have been toying with the idea of redoing my brewery. It looks like you're tapped in for natural gas. What do you do for temperature control?

I like that conical fermenter. If you ever feel a need to get rid of it, I could take it off your hands.

Here's my Brew Magic RIMS system. Works very well


I am tapped into natural gas, but, I don't have the rig converted yet. I've been running propane in the garage...

In this picture, you can see the freezer that I use for temp. control. It plugs into a controller that I can also plug a heat source into. It'll basically do 33-85, and, everything in between. I would ferment at 67F when it's below freezing in the garage with this setup. Heat source is just a 150W light bulb.




Oh, the conical isn't for sale, but, I do have a 15gal. plastic mini brew conical I'd sell. Shipping would be a bitch, cos, it's so big with the stand. Let me know if you're interested.

You mean over near the east side market? I practically used to be your neighbor. Where were you when I lived there?????

I do my brewing in the kitchen. I've been making 3 gallon batches-- if I make 5 gallons it takes me forever to drink it and I don't get to brew as much.

Belgians sounds like fun. I hope I can get to that level of skill eventually.

Thanks JW...

for providing the inspiration to start back up.

Just kegged the first batch of the year, an ALT (mind you, I'm an 'extract' brewer). Last batch I brewed was ~July 2008!

Prosit!
