The beginning of Mr. Wobbly Brewing Co.
 
Hey guys,
I'm super pumped right now! Just finished getting my brew stand all together. I'm really, seriously, thinking about starting my own brewing co. I'm going to call it Mr. Wobbly Brewing Co. (see avatar to the left) Any way here are some pics of what is the beginning of Mr. Wobbly Brewing Co. currently located in the basement. I know its not the prettiest but thats why its the beginning.
Cheers guys.

Good looking setup! Just make sure you keep a CO detector in the basement if you're gonna be brewing down there.

You should consider adding some diagonal lateral trusses to your setup. Then it won't be so wobbly and is less likely to fold over flat on you. The lateral perpendicular ones you have are only helping vertical buckling, but would not prevent the structure from collapsing off of vertical. Take a cue from bridge design.

From your pic looks more like Wobbly's wine ;)

I will be doing this. Thanks for the tip.

My dad and I work at the same winery here in the napa area so we get allocations every year so yes it is a lot of wine. There is a saying here in napa: "it takes a lot of beer to make good wine."

If you ever feel you have too much wine, I could take some off your hands.
