I know it's not a real big structure but shouldn't you have truss ties in the top of the trusses ? Maybe you don't there, forgive my ignorance but does it snow much there ?

Somehow, I think someone is going to exceed their 200 gallon a year limit. Mums the word.

I'm still working on that. As of now I'm fermenting in better bottles in a fermentation chamber in my basement. Right now I'm deciding between picking up a dedicated upright freezer or building a custom fermentation chamber for the garage. Either way, it'll hold better bottles and/or a future stainless conical.

One nice thing, I went with R-21 insulation in the building. It does a great job of keeping the heat in and out, so whatever I use won't have to work as hard.

It's a valid question. I went back and forth with my contractor on this. It's only 19' wide, and we get very little snow here. We ended up going with a ridge pole design to open up the ceiling instead of using trusses. The rafters do have rafter ties where they meet the ridge pole.

Code (at least here) requires anything over 32' wide to use trusses. I'm not an architect or an engineer, but I feel pretty confident in the integrity of this design.

Well the equipment is definitely going to be capable of breaking that capacity.. I don't think my wife and I and our group of friends can drink that much though.. we'll see I did about 100 gallons last year.
