You have inspired me!
I'm going to tell SWMBO right now!
"We need to get rid of the spa and build a brewery!"
That's going to be an awesome pub Belmont!
Cheers

I'm really excited and it was my wife's idea. I've got Norther Brewer getting me the valves needed to convert 2 hurricane burners to natural gas. I've been checking eBay and CraigsList for sinks. The friend that is managing the project had a good idea to actually install a garden hose assembly under the sink so that I can still hook up all the things that require that type of connector. I'll connect one of those slinky hoses so that it hides away in there easily. I still need to make the collar for my keezer and need to check out some more of the DIY threads to see how to get the taps on the keezer enclosure. If anyone knows of one that is similar to what I'm doing please link it. I'll dig through until then. Any other suggestions on ways to make this a great place to brew and pour?

I have visions of a large copper hood centered over that floor drain, so a single tier RIMS could be wheeled in. (with joy - sniffs the hops in the air)
Don't skimp on electricity Belmont. Before you know it you'll be looking for matching freezer to ferment in, 220 for the boil kettle, etc...

Thanks for the input on the electricity. I'll keep that in mind. We still haven't run the electric and I'll have whatever was left from the spa equipment on that breaker. I am getting a top freezer refrigerator for free fairly soon that I was planning on using for fermentation. Any idea how many fermenters you can get in a top freezer fridge? There won't be rooms for two freezers. I'm putting cabinets on either side of the keezer.

We have natural gas now.



And I forgot to post the sign that my wife surprised me with shortly after starting this project.

Had it made. She's an amazing woman but her talents lie in other areas.

Picked up the sink today off of a craigslist posting. This thing is a commercial quality sink that a plumber had custom made for his house but didn't end up using it. It's still in the plastic wrapper and he was offering to box it back up for me. I told him about this project and that I was a homebrewer and he said that he had a keg that was just taking up room in his garage and that I could have it if I wanted it. It was a half full sankey keg in pretty good shape. The sink is 19.5"Lx21"Wx14.5"D stainless steel never installed and came with the sankey keg for $200. I suppose the luck of the Irish has struck me again. This sink is going to be big enough for me to easily put by brew kettle in for an ice bath for cooling or cleaning. I should be able to dump as much water in it as I need at any time. With that and the floor drain I shouldn't have any trouble disposing of liquids.

Here's a pic of the sink and keg:
