Thanks, I sure hope so. It will still have to function as storage too, but I believe we will be able to better utilize the space and floor plan so the brew area doesn't feel too cramped!

Are you going to finish the walls, repaint the block or leave that??

Looks like it will make a great space! Get a bunch of shelves and make use of some of those open joists to make some overhead bins and you will be all set!.

Just amazing how much larger that space looks in the second set of pics.

Good luck to you as you continue your work!

I love a good brew-build. Gets me all jealous! Looks like a nice space.

The block walls were patched with mortar in areas that are susceptible to moisture (mainly SW corner floor/wall seam), and then we are in the midst of dryloking and painting the block walls.

We are definitely going to have some sort of shelving solution; we have stored things between the beams in the past, and will do so again when we have this finished.

Thanks for the luck and encouragement. We hope to have all of the dryloking and painting on the walls done tonight.

Then we will move onto laying down the epoxy flooring.

You suck. I hate you.




Seriously, nice space. Can't wait to see how it comes out.

Very nice project, I'll be excited to see the final product.

One question though, where did you get the cases of Köstritzer? I'd love to get some more flip-tops, especially if they come with the plastic German cases. I considered having some friends in Germany mail a few cases to me, but it would be prohibitively expensive (at least $100 per case).
