I've thought a lot about the floor situation, but haven't made any decisions. The plan right now is to keep it untreated.

A minor update to the brewing side of the project. My new MLT is complete, thanks to a last minute order from BobbyM.

I had planned to keep using my 10gal cooler for a while, but then you know.. stainless happened.

This may be the time before you get to much stuff in the way. I vote for painted.

Do checker board vct for the floor then seal it. That will clean up super easy and it's affordable flooring. What's with the guy talking about the outlets above the windows. Come on. I'm sure it's to plug lighting in. Anyway. Really cool here's my brew corner.

I'm going to do a high end brewery in my next house.

A big thank you to the commenters who helped me decide on the cement backer board (JonW, dcarroll86, IM_Lars, Jokenring). I may be setting a dangerous precedent here, but I took your collective advice and got some 1/2" cement backer board for behind the stainless. I installed it last night from the bottom of the hood, down to about 12" above the floor, where I just put in a strip of 1/2" drywall to keep it flush.

I need to pickup some longer screws before I can re-apply the stainless, since there is an extra 1/2" of material to get through now. I'll get it back up, and trimmed out tonight.

I acknowledge that this may not have been absolutely necessary, but I'm going to feel a whole lot better doing 90 minute boils on high flame knowing this extra layer of protection is back there.

Backer board

My suggestion for the floor of the garage would be Rust-Oleum Epoxy Garage-Floor Coating Kit .

It would make clean up of any spills much easier.

With your floor brand new, and no clutter, it would be the perfect time to do it.

Ditto, was thinking the exact same.

Sloping to a drain would be a plus.

PS - Love your sig quote. And your whole sig really.

Good thoughts, folks. I was anti-floor finishing because in my head I was thinking about the cost and time involved in grinding and polishing. This epoxy solution would be much easier. I do have fiberglass fibers in the concrete, so that'll be a bit of a challenge.. bit it sounds like I can hit the floor with a weed burner to singe off the ends of the fibers before applying. I'll take a closer look at this stuff - thank you.

Looks very good so far.
