So we are really talking about 12 gallon batches right? 50L kegs will be used for boil, mash, HLT? So 10 to 12 gallon batches? The fouth keg will be used for what?

Not so much generous, more just people who dont understand the value of the kit I ask for. The set up has changed, its a 240 litre barrel as the HLT, boil and mash are done in 2 50 litre kegs and fermentation is done in 2 30 litre barrels, I'm working on upgrades but its a slow process, couldnt get a hold of a decent pump so I rely on gravity, hence why I dont use a 240 litre barrel in each stage.

Curious, do you have a good water supply, a deep utility sink to wash your equipment and, what I have found most important (since I am such a slob when I brew), is a good floor drain?

  • I do, I use the taps in my kitchen to fill my 240 litre HLT.
  • I actually use a bit of a cheat, I fill some guttering with cleaning solution and do most of my washing in that, also it doubles as a sterile store for equipment not in use. I was my vessels using a pressure washer.
  • In terms of good drainage, I let the water go on my kitchen floor and use a solid water brush to brush the water into my drive, then just let the room dry out, means I have the cleanest floor in the county.
