Hoppo's E-Brewery Build
 
4 Attachment(s)

For those of you have have followed some of my other threads, I have been promising a thread to chronicle my e-brewery build. Well, I'm finally starting to make some progress. I am wrapping up the rest of my basement and will be having carpeting installed soon. I spent a few hours cleaning up and clearing out the storage side of my basement where the brewery will be located. There is still a bunch of furniture, storage shelf, etc. in the room, but the wall where the majority of the brewing is going to take place is clear and I have been working on ideas for a layout. I purchased a couple of stainless tables from a deli that went out of business by my office and an oversized single bay ss sink with a large drip pan from another "going out of business" liquidation sale. I plan on taking a trip to Menards for all of the lumber, drywall, electrical, and plumbing for the brewing space very shortly. More pics. to follow.

OK...for those of you who are not familiar with my other builds, I'm doing a rustic, cabin decor in my basement. I'm following though with the same rustic qualities over into my brewery as well. Here are a couple of pics, one of my keezer and one of my bar, which is adjacent to the brewing room that I'm building. I'm hoping to carry through with the same qualities such as cedar logs, knotty pine, tumbled travertine wall tile, etc.

I also attached a couple pics. of the ventilation hood that I built and trimmed out in cedar and knotty pine. I'm going to somehow incorporate a couple of cedar log trims into the desgin as well, but haven't gotten that far yet. I temporarily hung it on the wall to see what it looks like. Heavy as hell, but I came up with a great anchoring system, so the entire wall would have to fall over for this b*tch to come down. With a 265 cfm vortex exhaust fan venting straight out of the back of the house.....it should do the trick!

I still haven't had time to cut down the legs on the brewing table, but plan to cut it down to about 2 1/2 feet, so that I have plenty of clearance pouring grain into the MLT, stirring the mash, etc. I have another thread for my ale and lager fermentation builds, but in the pics. you can see my two chambers in the corner on the right hand side. Today I installed the new pre-rinse spray faucet that I purchased on CL onto the sink and slid my sink and brewing table into place to make sure that everything is laying out the way I want it to. The sink has a nice removable drip pan that I can attach to the front as extra counter space during the boil. With the two chambers in place, then the sink, the brewing table seems to be lining up under the exhaust hood. I have two more cabinet boxes to make, which will be on the left side of the brewing table.....one for a motorized grain mill and one for a grain storage bin. I'll keep plugging away, but it's getting hard to find the extra time. I can't wait to get the carpet, so I can get all of the furniture out of this room!
