As for the build....I have the pimps and 40 plate chiller coming. I really don't know how it came to this point but I've enjoyed the experience of brewing. I'm looking into electric components that I'm going to add later. I still need to add a mermaid to the front and do a nice paddle wrapping job some day soon.
The filter system also fits the kettle lids. I was hoping to use this for my hops in the wort...we'll see. The building of the stir plate was pretty cool...and very easy.
Oh yeah...I built an oast and started malting my own barley so that's cool.
I know their names and have probably drank beer with them... I was a squid from 86-06 and Vince was my neighbor in the mid 90's we used to have huge parties. At that time he was a force recon instructor at Coronado and then inspected all the dive lockers in the USN/USMC I still talk to him and I'm going to see him next month.
Dude your brewery is turning out so awesome! I think a mermaid on the front would be bad-a$$! Do you have a grain grinder and I missed it? Also a sprinkling system above the mash tun for sparging would be cool! I'm jealous both of your brewery and that you have that understanding of a wife... Lmao mines still not real wild about my brewing!
