If you spray the paneling, you'll have a MUCH easier time of it.

I am somewhat doing the same thing... Only now do I have some time to dedicate to THIS part of the house... slowly. My brewing gear is finally all under the same roof.

Details on running water lines and drain..?

Cool

Water lines and drain. The wall that my sink is next to was an area that had just a sink. little shaving sink bathroom nook thing. so i had copper hot and cold lines there, with plenty of length to spare. The drain is a floor drain in the basement, i'll just run a 1.50 in pvc line through the wall to it, it's only 8 feet away . The filter is your typical whole house filter with flexible sink lines connecting it all. I'll get some better picks tonight. It's a pain to get all the fittings together - especially sifting through rows of parts bins.

If you have access to a better supply store than I do, like a lowes, Home depot, Menards, i recomend staying away from compression fittings and using JIC. If your using copper lines, that is.

one more post to bump it- trying to brew my first beer in my new brew room. I'm using a yeast pack that is at least 10 months old. I made a slurry for it to brew in last night so i'm crossing my fingers.

Features. Built in fermentation closet, sink with water filter, side by side fridge with digital temp control for lagering, a freezer, shelves, two windows that open for ventilation and a fan to blow fumes out above the boil pot. The main thing with renovating the room was simple functionality on a budget and easy cleanup.

That's probably my main concern, if the place will vent well enough or get super cold when i have it all opened up. I have CO2 detectors in the room and upstairs, so i just have to be conscious for this first brew.

Anyway, i'm excited. using new stuff and new set ups can sometimes cause headaches on brew day but i know this will make brewing a lot easier and I advise anyone thinking about renovating a room for brewing to go for it.

nice project, looks like you've got a pretty sweet setup there. I think it should vent well enough with the fan blowing out right above the bk, and i really don't think cold will be a problem (although that may be relative, i brewed in my garage last saturday and the high was 0*f). You have to be doing it right with those rogue imperial flip tops in the mix. Good luck on your first batch

THanks man. Were expecting 31 with a 20% chance of white stuff so i should be good.

Those flips tops are awesome, they come in pretty handy for beer club meetings.

Great job, looks very tidy. I'm sure you'll enjoy having all your brewing stuff in one place. Just be careful storing those carboys that high. If one falls the explosion will be impressive and very dangerous to anyone in the blast zone.

Cheers
