Default Setting up a Homebrew in Israel

Hi all, my name is eliran and I live in Israel near tel-aviv, me and my friend Ariel started brewing 4 months ago (extract & specialty grain).

It is now time to grow and we are starting to set up our brewery. The place chosen is an old shed and we will be using the main room.

The focus right now is to setup all the electricity, water and sewage pipes. It's all there but not in working condition. Alongside that we are building a sink and a brew stand. The build is all done on the cheap side of things… understand that everything costs much more than in the U.S – for example a six-pack costs around 8-9.5$ for a cheap one.

the main goal – dividing the room in to two sides – the brewing side and the "pub" side.

We started working on the sink – we got this old stainless steel sink and cleaned it for 3 hours. We welded a stand for it using old metal scarp. It's going to have a shelf under the sink, wood panels on the sides and wood doors on the front.

As for installation we are thinking of this setup:
On the main line

Installing three taps:
1. A regular one for filling the pot

2. to accommodate a washer

3.3. Shower hose and a power head for cleaning the pot and other stuff

What do you think?


fallow us on facebook for more pics and stuff


please excuse my English, I got it from the equivalent of PBS in Israel

Thats pretty cool! Pomegrante beer sounds interesting. May have to try something like that out.

Nice job fellas! Keep up the great work, you are doing great. I'm trying to build something similar here in the states. You guys finish yours and I'll finish mine. Then someday we agree to visit each others brewery and the culture of the surrounding areas for each. Keep up the great work!

Hi all the topic of this week is the walls. I've started mending the plaster walls
Bought 25KG of plaster and started fixing each wall – some pics

I can't say I've ever seen anyone build beer crates with 2x6 lumber, but what the heck. Bomb-proof!

we use this wood simply because it’s the cheapest we could find – 6.25$ a crate, the next step is to put rope handles on them.
