Default New basement setup

I just moved into my first house in April and finally have found time to setup my brewers bench. I still have to do all the actually brewing upstairs in the kitchen until I can get an electric build setup.

In the pick is 24 bottles of Apfelwein, 1 Gallon of Mead I started saturday and 5g of Great Pumpkin Ale I started saturday as well.

I still have wireshelves to put up and in the back left corner are 2 gun barrels I plan on mounting to the wall some how

Lots of room to work with! Def chest freezer! I just got one for cheap with a controlled temp..one of the best purchases i've made since homebrewing.

I plan on staying at 1 gallon of Mead per batch for now and 5 gallons of beer. I'd love to do more but lack the equipment for now. My goal as of now is to have atleast 2 batches of beer bottled at a time and by this time next year 1 bottled and 2 kegged .

Very nice. Congrats on the house. Building out your brew space has a lot in common with brewing. You need to take it slow and have patience. Best of luck.

Thank you. Trust me if SWMBO had her way I'd be taking it verrrry slow

Though she probably enjoys my homebrews more than I do! Especially the wine!
