You can use the whole ocean as your wort chiller. Course if you're in the Bahamas you might find it a little harder.

The jockey box doe the chillin cap'n.

This deck hands gotcher stern completely covered with my final suggestion. That'll leave you to the navigatin' and drinkin' parts.

Heck, I'll step that up one more. When in port I'll hang back on the yacht with your wife, I...I...I...I mean the beer, the beer.

Good idea. I never thought of adding another cold plate. The dont draw to much juice. Kinda like a heat exchanger but cold.

speaking from first hand experience... There is no way you will have room for a keg on the boat. 2nd... Temperature is going go kill you - you will be lucky to keep the daily temperature below 90 in the cabin unless you plan on running a/c which won't happen.

No, this just isn't fair. You are in no way allowed to have your cake and eat it to. Not while there is still air in my lungs damnit!

I know what you mean about the cats$$$$$ a semi decent one runs damn near a half mill. We've done some bare boats in the carrib. and loved it and dont plan on retiring on it. The max would be four to five years or till we get sick of it.

After reading your profile sounds like we got a lote in common..changing hobbies like underwear. LOL

1/2 mill for a blue water cat that is big enough to brew on? No way. You are easily talking 1.5

You would be best off brewing applewine in gallon jugs one at a time. Stuff not related to the boat and not absolutely essentional for acfossing needs to take up the space of a large duffle.

I love sailing and I move cats; problem is I will never afford a cat. $500k is the minimum for a USED cat and then plan on thousands in maintenance a year. I think a house on the beach (with room for my microbrewery) and a 16' Hobie cat is what I want now. But who knows, life changes and so do my needs/wants!

All I can say is "Wow." Good luck, and have fun, as I have nary a clue how to make it work.

I didn't mean to discourage you... although it may have sounded that way. You certainly need to chase those dreams. You can get a really good new cat from performance cruising for $170,000 and a used one for $50-60K but they would not be my first choice from blue water cruising... although they can be well built.

For long-term cruising you need sooo much space in the boat for stowage of day-today backups (think multiple sets of sails, extra props, guys, lines, and on-and-on) for those items that are particular for your boat that you can;t easily find or fashion by yourself.

I just don't see how you would be able to find the space for brewing. There are a lot of campgrounds around the Caribbean that you could hook for the two or three weeks necessary for a descent fermentation but keeping that wort cool would be trouble but if you were cruising the St. Lawrence you might have trouble keeping it warm enough.

However, if you can get primary fermentation done at a campground and in a plastic bucket for secondary you might be able to pull it off.
