Nice setup

Nice setup - makes me thirsty. I have a similar setup - although not is use for some time.........So are you now looking at buying SS 55 gallon wine barrels and converting them next.....that's the stage I was at.....homebrewing is good for the soul....enjoy!

Looking good!

I brew outside (for now) in Montana, and wintertime brews are a challenge. I'd like to move inside too. Really, the hood setup is the one thing I don't have figured out yet.

What kind of exhaust system are you using?

Hopefully, this will allow me to brew more often, and, then, maybe

I do a fair amount of business with a restaurant supply co. that does custom hoods. they built it for me. You can find used hoods at restaurant supply shops. The fan is one they recommended. It is on top of the hood, and, blows out, so, all I have outside my house is some smallish louvers.

I have some old stuff stashed that I'm not touching yet, but, other than that, all I have is cask ales, and, they don't travel well. You'll have to take a trip east!

OMG The Beer Wench





Jim I may not of picked up on it .. what sort of beer styles do you brew?









I'm a huge fan of Imerial Stout .. (well pretty much any stout actually) ... are these any harder/easier to brew than regular Bitter or Lager?

I make mostly english styles, and, american pale ales. Other than that, it's belgians.

I love a good imperial stout too on occasion, and, I'll be making one in a couple weeks, once I get stocked up again. This basement took longer than I expected Generally, stouts aren't any more difficult than any other ale. Actually, the darker a beer, the easier they are to brew since the roasted malts hide any flaws from technique or whatever. A Good Pilsner is the most difficult beer to nail.

Now, that said, an Imperial Stout is really difficult to get right. High alcohol brewing has it's own rules to follow, but, with an imperial stout, you need the balance of sweetness and alcohol. Too sweet, and, it's cloying. Too dry and it loses alot of rich character we love. I've never made one, but, I've decided I'm going to get one down this winter for next year. FWIW, I love Victory Storm King and Oskar Blues Ten Fidy. Awesome stuff!
