Dude, move that bench away from the window, put in a fume hood (i did mine for about $250) and brew inside year round!

Ha you want to come over and help me move this thing? It's solid as a rock and heavy as hell guess thats why the previous owners left it. In my brewers dream world I'd be doing exactly that. Maybe in the future. I want to build a couple of heat sticks first.

If you were in Maine then I'd ask you to bring some lobsters and then get over to Michigan to help the poor guy move the bench.

I am envious of the space here. Makes me wish I had a basement or just space to do this ... and funds.

Congrats on the new home. Looks like you have a really nice space there to do something great with! Take your time and have fun with it. I have been building my basement brewery for over a year now and it's 90% complete, but life and business keep getting in the way. I live up in the Oxford about 15 miles north of the Palace of Auburn Hills. Once I wrap mine up, you are more than welcome to make the drive up to my house to check it out and maybe get a few ideas. Let me know if I can help.

Oxford isn't to far from here in Saint Clair Shores. I'd be glad to check it out when its all set up and swap some homebrews! Speaking of which I just freed up my 5 gallon bucket so I'll be getting my next batch in this weekend if all goes well!

oooh good space - I'm working on a basement build as well, but it's going to take me forever to finish it... $300 a year budget and that includes all other brewing expenses (grain, equipment, etc.) I burn through it in no time. It will happen though!

good luck to you sir
