Yeah, I love my toaster. I'm rocking a ported and polished VF39 (from an STi) turbo, Invidia up pipe, K&N cone filter, 04 Sti ECU with a Cobb stage 2 shelf map, WRX springs over AGR2's, Cobb 3" stainless turbo-back, short-throw (which I don't really like) and a bunch of other little junk. Putting around 290 to the wheels.

Congrats on the first batch! One of the first brewery additions that I purchased was a immersion chiller - well worth it!

Thanks guys! I'm taking Wed-Friday off this week, so I hope to have plenty-more updates soon! Including one secret-addition: Adding a hot water line and a drain to the sink in my garage...

Good deal, I'm looking forward to it!

Little Chugger pump delivered yesterday:
I'll add a picture in a bit.

And, I'm preparing for a three-day brewing expansion with lots of pics...

Subaru owner here too, sort of. My wife drives a '04 FXT with a VF39, gutted up pipe, STi axle back and tune. I'm at the other end with a Evo IX.

In the past 48 hours I was able to get ingredients from Midwest, assembled the mill, brew three batches, cleaned all of my kegs and lines, repassivated the kettle that I hit with the wire wheel, picked up the two other kegs from Paul and cut the tops off of them. Tomorrow I hope to get the fitting holes poked into the kegs and thermometers and ball valves installed.

Can't believe I didn't see your thread sooner, great thread Ted. Makes me think back to my own brewery and how its grown over the 2 years i've been addicted. Can't wait till we can add pictures of our stands and of course brew on them!

I borrowed a welder from a buddy so I said screw the keg work, I want to do some welding.

The tubing


A couple tack welds per corner to hold everything in place


The outer frame tacked.


And just because I wanted to see what it was looking like


and here's the plan:
