Well....I've been here for awhile and I've sucked up all kinds of advise from this site...(by asking....but usually just lurking) and I've never posted any pics. So.... today I brewed BM's Centennial Blonde. This is the second time I've done this receipe AG (at the SWMBO's request).

My setup is GHETTO.... Most of the stuff is DIY (from this site and others...)

1st pic is my Mash Tun (thanks to HBT)

2nd is my steel braid inside my Mash Tun (Thanks HBT)

3rd is a shot of my homemade brewpot (stainless/12 gallon....ghetto as hell) and my homemade brew stand...(old30 gallon aquarium stand with some mods so my burner fits....also Ghetto as hell)

4th is my homemade immersion chiller

We sell those aeration whips at the shop. Good luck with getting it to last any amount of time. When (not if) it breaks, do yourself a favour and get a stainless steel one. BTW, I used my SS one for aerating last time. Man does it do a good job.

Oh...I don't look down on it... I relish that my 'junk' makes what I consider....excellent beer!!! Thanks for the compliments...and as far as kegging....I've had a keggerator for years so the switch to homebrew kegging was an easy transition...I was already halfway there...
