Default New Home for the Brewery

Although I'm not super frugal, I do not like to waste money on anything - brewing included. So I thought I would share my new setup because it might interest others who share my cheap nature...

Here it is - you might have seen the system before, but this is its new home courtesy of a $72 shelving set from Lowes. And the nice part is that can be easily broken down to transport to group brews!



I plan to add a control panel in the not-too-distant future, but this simple setup works well for now. This pic was taken in "storage mode" - when brewing, the burner and keggle will be out to the right (and there will obviously be more of a mess...). When not in use, both shelves will be covered by BBQ covers to keep the dust and bugs off.

And to combat the AZ heat, I keep the patio cool with this:



Ok - that last bit was a bit of a splurge, but it was a necessity for summer brewing...

Very nice setup. I need to get more organized like that but this is how I cool down in the summer.




P.S. pic was not taken in the summer but it is nice now

You give hope to lesser men.

The system looks really good. Great idea with the grill covers.

This one's just for you Kabouter... it hangs in my home office... The full size version is in my gallery, and, yes, the runes are accurate...
