Default Mini micro brewery

Does anyone have (plans, pics, etc) for a free standing brewery that would fit, say on a 10' x 18' piece of ground ?

Thanks

my wife refers to our basement as a brewery but I don't think that counts

Not a barrell setup - a 5-10 gallon setup. Just thinking about something permanent, instead of having to drag all this stuff out every time.

Also, climate controlled and rain won't be a problem.

Do you mean like a RIMS/HERMS? Where in the house are you looking to put this? I'm closely following this for building my own brewery:http://just-brew-it.com If it's indoors you'll have to pay special attn to your burners and avoiding CO poisoning....you'll need some sort of exhaust fan to the outside, probably easy clean floors, etc. etc.

Here's what I did.

I got 2 small construction scaffolds from Home Depot @ $99 each (that seemed like about what I would pay for a dedicated brew stand). They are 4' long and about 2' wide. And put a 20 lb. LPG tank, turkey fryer and a 9 gal. pot on the top shelf of the first scaffold. Then 2 each 1"x8"s x 2' long run from the first scaffold to the second at mid level hold my MLT. The second scaffold has a banjo burner & my boil pot on the lowest level. This setup allows a gravity flow all the way to the fermenter. It takes up more room than a permanent setup but allows me to use the scaffolds for other purposes. Also the scaffolds fold up so I can store them in a relatively small foot print and they have lockable wheels so I can move them around if I want or need to.

The entire setup would be about 10' long. And I did stack some more lumber on the 1'x8's to get the MLT at just the right height for my boil pot.

Mine has a much smaller footprint than what you're looking for. I can send you details on the measurements if you want them.

There are some more pics here.
