Default Phase 2 brewery construction photo

Here is a shot of brewing hardware without boiler, grain hopper, mill, and plc panel are in their final location.http://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.la...30230813303522
Still have internals and drive motor to install on screw conveyor then after boiler heat sheild and mounting hardware installed, everything gets pulled off the walls for insulation and sheetrock installation.

Default setup.

it looks good so far, but isn't it going to get really hot in there? I see you have windows and I would guess a door,is that going to be enough? Is sheetrock the stuff you use in bathrooms and kitchens? I was also thinking about the moisture you going to be generating.

Looks really nice. And I see you're in Turner, Oregon. I would think if it got too hot in there you could just open a window and it would feel pretty nice. And the opposite in the winter as the brewing would warm up the brewhouse nicely.

As ChrisS pointed out: Are you going to use greenboard (or any moisture resistant gypsum board) in there? I don't think it would be a critical issue, but hell if you've got the kind of cash to build a structure solely for brewing why not go all out?

I'm feelin' Diamond Plate. Everywhere.

+1 on the diamond plate, haha

Yeah, that looks great though. Wish I had the money and space to build one of those.

Plan is to skirt and vent boil kettle burner, vent boiler burner, and install a hood and exhaust fan for boil kettle vapor. Overall design goal is to make an automated system that addresses most of the problems in homebrewing systems. Do not expect vapor problems with an exhaust hood and fan system, direct venting of the burners will reduce heat load to level manageable by airconditioning system.

That's a nice setup, what will your brewing capacity be for this adventure?

Have you tried out the screw conveyor yet? That is a really steep angle even for one that is fully enclosed.
