Thanks for the complement.

I'm going to use a 6 inch vortex fan (or one like it). I used a Schmidling bare bones malt mill. I'll take some pictures and give better detail soon.

I would be interested to see if you can provide the wiring/motor used to automate your mill. Thats my next convenient step. I know Kal uses the Hammer Drill, I do the same... but in honesty, the automated mill adds convenience.

Care to share a wiring diagram and motor info?

I'll give a try. The motor is a basic 110 volt ac motor that is pretty common and easy to find good used ones by asking around, I found this one a ta local flea market for $10. The wiring is only 3 wires Hot, Common and ground that I wired to a light switch. I used JP Schmidling bare bones malt mill as my starting point. The hopper cover acts as both a hopper and a safety guard to protect from moving parts. It just sits on the table and fits snugly over the malt mill.

Thanks for the complements. Its in my attached 900 sqf garage 3bays, it has a poker table and 42 inch LCD. It has 13 foot high ceilings, so its feels like a banquet hall. The wife uses one bay for her car and I keep my truck in the pole barn, so we always have 2 bays open for the brewery and partying.

I got the exhaust blower installed last night here are some pictures. I still need to build the small control box to house the speed control for the fan and lights that will be installed in the hood.

I added a 3rd pump as a backup/spare this weekend and relocated the pump station directly center of the kettles and shortened the hose. Note that I have my pumps mounted on a drawer slide so I can pull them out while in use and less mess when hooking up hoses then when done I can slide them out of the way. .

Very nice build. I like the drawer slides on the pumps so they can be pulled out for connections but pushed back out of the way so you aren't tripping over them.

Oh, and I think you need a larger CO2 tank or oxygen tank...
