  • I started homebrewing 4 years ago. It all with a Mr. beer kit I received as a gift for Christmas. I ended up with 3 all in one year. rn2 Mr beer kits and a Brewology 201 kit. The first Mr beer kit tasted terrible. The second one smelled like sewer water, so I was afraid to taste it. The brewology kit turned out drinkable but not good. After failing with the kits i bought a brew pot, bucket, etc, and real ingredients. Ever since I started buying real quality ingredients, the beer has been great! The last two years I've brewed 60 gallons each year. I have learned to hate bottling, and soon will be enjoying draft homebrew...

    Yes I was reserving some posts to break up the build a bit.

    All the brass hardware I made from old brass door kick plates from the local scrap yard. I
    stacked up all the pieces and machined the holes on the mill and cut them out on the bandsaw.

    had the metal bent at a local heating and cooling fabricator. I cut the plywood to fit nicely
    between the ...

    40 hours i...
