I've got a few more photos to share for those following my progress. I've been hesitant to post too much during this phase of the project, since most of the work I'm doing now is not directly beer/homebrew related. I am happily brewing behind the scenes though, and am please to report that my pipeline of beer (and cider) is stronger than it has ever been.

Decking material enjoying it's last ever opportunity to stay dry and warm indoors


Spent the day yesterday laying down the decking with my buddy the contractor.


Looking at this picture after the fact reminds me that I'm going to need to put some real effort into rehabilitating the lawn next to the deck come spring time. It's been seriously trampled at the worst time of year. I think it'll continue to be pretty ugly there until the first growth spurt of spring.

It's been raining like crazy in Seattle (shocking, I know), so today's update is taken from inside the sunroom.

Minor update here, the ~20 year old squirrel cage fan that came with my reclaimed exhaust hood has given up the ghost. It failed on my during a boil a couple of weeks ago (90 minute boil IIPA) which i noticed when the building got very hot and very humid rather quickly. After letting it cool down and dry out for a day it seemed to be working ok, but it failed again on my during a boil this week.. It was time for it to go.

It has been replaced by a 400cfm in-line fan, similar to those used by many other brewers on HBT, which I hooked up directly above the vent hood. It's a bit louder, but moves a lot more air.

I had a feeling this was coming. In fact, this possibility is the primary reason I had not built the box around the top of the hood to conceal the pipe.

New Fan in place




I was asking a lot of this old fan. It did it's best.
