Ya my wife is just glad to have all this out of the house. I did get a few more Craigslist finds. And I'm in the process of moving stuff around again. Make it a little more efficient. And I need a new boil kettle. That thing is just too small. Anyone have a 20 gal boilmaker they're willing to part with?

That pic above is the range hood I found on Craigslist. Same one I have in my house. Works great. It's brand new but has a small scratch, so instead of 1000 I got it for 200. Lucky find. And I put together a mock up of my milling station, I just need a motor for that rebelmill. I can find a motor but the gearbox I'm having some trouble finding.

Btw I'm in poplar bluff Missouri, which is in the southeast corner , for those who were asking. If there is anyone else in the area let me know. Hard to find other brewers around here.

You might want to excavate the trough a little bit. If it was truly used as a catch basin for cleaning out the room, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a drain pipe runnning out of it. In an ideal situation, you could dig out the pipe, make sure it is clear and will exhaust fluid out of the building, then backfill the trough with drain rock or pea gravel, or even fabricate a grate to cover the trough. You might even find a grate laying around that belongs there. You will want to do all that before you epoxy. If you do find a drain pipe that is full of dirt, look into a sidewalk tunnel kit at your local hardware store. It is a kit of pvc parts that you glue to 3/4" pvc pipe to make a pressure wand that screws onto a hose. Once you've made your wand as long as you need it, you turn on the water and begin shoving it into the clogged pipe. The water excavates a tunnel for you. These things are actually designed for tunneling under a sidewalk, after which you cut off the fittings, leaving you with a 2/4" pipe chase under your sidewalk to use for irrigation or conduit, but I have used them for clearing drains. This process will produce a lot of muddy water, depending on how long the run is, and if the drain pipe is corrugated and/or curved, it can be quite a headache. But having a neatly-working drain out of the room will be a really nice feature for you.

Lastly, place all of your "equipment" onto the graph paper to see where everything will fit, what your clearances will be, etc. Play with it for a while. Once you have a layout you think you like, leave it for a few days and then come back to it.

Good luck. That is an amazing space to have to work with for a brewery!

Google sketchup's free version is great for this kind of project, once you get the hang of it. If you have any CAD experience, you will pick it up pretty quick.


Edit: Ooops! I didn't notice that this thread went beyond page 1 when I posted this.

Subscribed.

With a setup like this and all you've got planned, do you really need a house?
