Did you get a chance to get your first brew in it? Interested to hear about the process (with pictures!).

Is your sink drain sloped towards the house, or do you need a pump to move waste water?

Actually, yes! I've been meaning to update the thread with the last build pictures, but I've been really busy finishing the build and getting my two first brews in, and tomorrow I'll be going to the US for two weeks. Hopefully I'll have time to finish the build log when I get back!

In the mean time, here's what it looks like with some oatmeal stout going through the pipes :


and here's the full album of my second brew day : http://imgur.com/a/rkq7Y


As for the drain, I haven't actually installed the sink yet since I haven't found the model I want yet. It's also not yet connected up to the main drain. We did however make sure that the pipe was sloped downwards all the way to the house. So far it seems to work fine with water, I hope the slope will be sufficient for when there's dirt in the water, or spent grains...

That looks awesome! I'm curious to see how the winter treats the space as it's largely unheated. Stainless will be fine, tubing as long as it's dry, pumps will be fine as long as water is emptied, control panel is fine etc. I don't think there are any issues as long as lots of water is not left in there.

Summer shouldn't be as bad, even if it gets very hot in there. Everything is meant to take heat pretty much.

Any thoughts on a cover for the brew table/setup?

Enjoy your trip to the States!

Cheers!! Thanks for the reply
