Meanwhile I'm happy to say that the brewing continues, with an IIPA, Maibock, Moose Drool, 'Island Lager', home grown apfelwein, and a Pale in various stages of fermenting or consuming. We're looking forward to the brewery warming party in March!





The design has changed a little from the original sketches, but it's pretty cool to once again see my drawings coming together in real life as they did with the building itself.
I love that you were able to connect the deck between the house and the brewery. Look forward to seeing some hops growing on the arbor this Spring.

Thanks, all.

Yeah, tying the two spaces together on one level was an important goal of the project. Before any of this got started we had a small deck off the house, then a step down to a shorter deck, then a step down to a patio, then three big steps UP to the slab where the garage now sits. I'm still a little sensitive about how large we had to make the deck in order to accomplish a single level without it being super skinny like a bowling alley, but I'm really glad to be able to walk from the house to the brewery in one easy motion now.

Better yet, as long as it's not raining, I can do it in my slippers.

The arbor is almost done. We're going to add 4 more rafters to it so the spacing is a little narrower. These aren't nailed down just yet, as evidenced by the one on it's side over the door. I'm pretty excited about how it's turning out though!

Dude can we switch. I'll give you snow and freezing cold in exchange to what you have. Posting pictures in February that looks like spring is evil for us on the east coast. Great build.

Thanks!

It's true, we did have a couple of nice days here, for February anyway. I'm glad we were able to take advantage of them. It's back to cold and wet today though.

I also put some work into the brewery this weekend in advance of a 10 gallon batch I brewed last night. I finally found the motivation to clean/polish/cut/drill my final keggle. I'm not sure why I waited so long with this keg sitting in storage for several months. It's so much nicer than using my old pot as the HLT.

Pardon the mess, as you can see we are still in full 'construction zone' mode in the shop in support of the outdoor projects.

Detailed conversion pics of the other kegs are earlier in this thread, so I'll skip the details and just show the before & after.






And the aforementioned 10 gallons (bottom shelf) nice and snug for fermenting

lucky you here it's cold with blowing snow.
Great polishing job on your keggles.
What did you brew it looks tasty
