Oh, I'll have questions, :-). What did you do for ventilation?

Photos of the before:

Before I cleaned the area this evening:




After I cleaned the area. I plan to put the brew stand to the right of the drainage. Over the drainage I plan to put a custom stand or a stainless steel table. Later I could put a sink there:




In this photo you can see the basement from the bottom of the stairs. Across the brewery (on the right wall) you can barely see the washer and dryer. I plan to upgrade that sink for easy cleaning of the kettles:



Here is a closeup of the sink and washer/dryer directly across the brewery area. I plan to run PVC between the joists above directly outside next to the dryer vent for the ventilation exhaust:



Lots of room for improvement, other ideas, suggestions, etc. I plan to scan the buildouts this weekend on HBT to get some more ideas. For right now I'm not planning on closing it in. I could do that later though...

I did my in the garage, so I made some fans from server cooliong fans(my build thread is in my sig) and crack my garage door. Looking at your basement. I would make a hood from some wood and plastic panels, get some 6" pvc, run it to you basement window. Install block glass with a dryer vent in one section. Use a 6x4 reduce to hook the fan/blower from the 6" pvc to the dryer vent. Outside run the pvc up and away with a 135 to 180 at the end to prevent rain from coming in.

I am actually planning a wood hood with plastic panels!

I was going to run the PVC directly to a new 4" hole that I would make. But now that you mention utilizing the window it has me thinking. Not sure how I would implement the block glass. It would probably be easier to just install a new dryer vent. But it does have me intrigued...
