Default Canadian Mega Brewery

Hi Fellow Forum Members
I am new to the site and would be very appreciative if some of the more experienced Brewers would look over my Equipment list and point out any deficiencies.
I am building this project with the intention of having 10-20 of us home brewers use it and capitalize on sharing equipment costs and reduced price on bulk ingredient purchases.
Have spent months creeping these sites and watched every YouTube video out there!
This is the system I believe will give us the best beer and enough diversity for all the different Brewers and Brews.

Sorry Boiler has hop Blocker and HLT will not have any additions.
Also will mount plate chiller on stand as well.

If it was me I would drop the Tower of Power and plan a good fermentation area with more than 1 fermenter.

Also, Blichmann Burners are so good and reasonably priced I don't know why you would use anything else.

Thanks CelarBrau for the quick response.

I have 20....5 gallon Glass Carboys for smaller batches...just could not resist one big Conical.
Have a 20 foot by 30 foot area devoted to this project...and will start working on the fermentation area as well.
Any thoughts on that would be appreciated.
Got a quote from Brew Magic because I wanted a control and recording system so we can reproduce and modify recipes.
Then figured out I could put this 55 gallon system together for Half the cost....don't know any other way to incorporate the electronics but the tower.

Oh yes and the burners...well not going crazy on the stand yet....had two of these burners already for a smokehouse...so just ordered another...these are $64...Blichmanns $200 each by the time I get them to Canada.

^^ Yeah, I had the same question.

Methinks the Hop Blocker dribbled down out of its rightful position next to the BK

Cheers!

Yes...way up here in the cold north we like to save time by hopping our sparge water.
This gives us more time for drinking home brew and playing hockey.

Not a lot of room either in our igloos...so we save a little space by eliminating the boil kettle.

Ok...we have had our fun...it was late I was sampling to much home brew...I have corrected the post....does anybody have advice or are we going to beat this equipment error to death with a stick?
