Well I guess I need to get my post up before I can share my pictures of my electric brewery. Its a Kal clone with some differences. I just finished the matching Grain Mill and I'm currently working on my matching exhaust hood. Hope to share the pictures soon. Happy Holidays to everyone, Castermmt

Looking forward to seeing what all you have done. I am in the process of my own e-HERMS build now myself!!! :mug:

I use a 20 gallon HLT 15 Gallon Mash Tun and a 20 gallon boil kettle. I used cheaper kettles then the Blichmanns and I used the cheaper Chugger pumps. Once I get eh hood hung I'll post more pic's.

Very nice woodworking skills. Impressive.

I'm totally jealous of your garage. Looks like you've got plenty of space.

I'm intrigued by your hood design. Any details? In for updates...

I hope to have the hood done and installed by the end of the year. I updated my brewery by adding two 15 cf Chest freezers, one I use with a dual stage love controller as my fermentation chamber that can hold any combination of four 6.5 or 5 gallon carboys at a time. The second chest freezer I use as my lager chamber/keezer where I can store up to 8 corny kegs. also have a true kegorator with 3 taps.

I'm using 1/2 inch sanded plywood, 2 x 6 inch pine boards and a thin plastic sheet product to line the inside. Here's where I'm at to date. I'll be working on it a little bit each day now that I'm on vacation next week.

I nailed it together using 1.25 inch brads and used water resistant wood glue. The plastic sheeting is fastened using construction adhesive (liquid nails).

Here's more pictures of the hood build. Simple cut the plywood at 45 degrees and filled in any gaps with water proof wood glue. Some of these pics are from today. The Hood is 6 ft x 30 inches.

I'd love to use your grain mill design in the next evolution of my own grain mill. It's a work of art.

Great job.

Hood looks awesome. I am highly reconsidering re-designing mine and going with something more like yours.

Couple more questions about it. First, how did you mount the 1/2'' plywood "hood" to the 2x6 base and top? It's hard to tell in the pics. Second, how do you plan on mounting it, looks like you mounted some rings to the 2x6? Finally, any chance you would be willing to disclose the dimensions on the 1/2" in plywood (i.e. the width at the bottom and top)?

Great work.
