Default Black Pug Brewing Progress Thread

My 1/2" cork sheets were dropped at the waterjet cutter today to make perfect 17 1/2" circles for the underside of the kegs. (That's just cardboard in the photo below).

This evening, I mocked up placement of the vent hood today. I suspended it with threaded rods, washers, and hung from metal brackets screwed into the trusses in the ceiling.



Currently the distance from the top of the kettles to the underside of the hood is 15"... I'm trying to figure out if I should raise it more.


Drywall is coming Monday to enclose the left and right sides of the garage to enclose the brewery. (I have a really huge garage and I'm enclosing the center part for the brewery).

I'm getting quotes for a ductless A/C unit for the wall above the vent


Diamond plate has been delivered to cover the walls. I'm going to make the entire backsplash area in diamond plate like someone suggested on one of my other threads....

Like this. (borrowed from another thread here)



My panel is pretty much done... I have about 10 more wires to hook up inside, then trace all of the connections to double check.

I spent about 6 hours polishing each of my keggles...




Pump board




Countersunk bolt heads and rubber feet




Shield detail




Pigtails for extending Chugger pumps (since the original wire in the pump motor is hard to access)

For now, I'm using s-hooks to hang until I get the right position nailed down






I have all of the fittings, washer, o-rings assembled finger tight and bagged by kettle.


Tomorrow or later one night will be hole drilling night. gulp!

Build looks great, especially the finish on the kegs. Where did the hood come from? Looks like a pretty nice commercial grade unit.

Definitely will stay tuned for updates.

The hood was custom fabricated by a fellow here in Central Florida.

I'm pretty much following Kal's plans of its not obvious.

Except for a stainless table and more space.

What did you use to make the pump covers, those look right up my alley.

Aluminum sheets from Lowes (or Home Depot, don't remember). They had pre-cut 8x16 sheets. I just trimmed a couple of inches off. I drilled 4 holes on each short end, and then bent one end 90 degrees inward. Then just screwed to the board with stainless screws.

Very simple.
