True the resale value of stainless is going to be much better, hopefully you wont need to sell them though. I like to be positive. Stainless kegs come up on probrewer all the time for around $100 a piece.

Hoss, the brewshed looks great. Hope things work out with the old brewpub building.

I did notice you have flourescent lights in the shed, couldn't tell about the cold room. Beware of the UV from those lights, especially if end up fermenting in something clear or not UV resistant. I read somewhere that beer can skunk as fast as 5 minutes, though I can't recall if that was from sunlight or flourescents (obviously, flourescents put out much less UV than the sun). Just wanted to throw that out.

Cheers

The 10' did turn out smaller than I'd planned but it's fine for what I have now. If you can go bigger, I would. I'll get a picture soon but I did also add a utility sink for washing or cooling down worts. The cold room really shrunk after putting in the thick R-30 insulation. It went from a 6 X 9 to a 4 X 7.5. It'll still work fine though.

Thanks for the reminder about the UV light. My fermenting vessels are all UV resistant. I use 6 gallon buckets and I have two 15 gallon SS Sanke fermentors. Right now there is no lighting in the cold room.

It's the sun NOT fluorescent bulbs, they have zero effect on beer.

New pics showing the utility sink and water supply.

Here you see the sink then hanging near the door is a hose.

I decided to test out the rig with a 5 gallon extract brew. Heats up 3 gallons real fast.
Used a folding table so it's out of the way when not in use and the Keezer will go to the shop once it's ready.

EDIT: I also wore my kilt brewing for the first time. No pictures of that though, maybe next time.

Are you going to have a lab area for microbiological testing and yeast culturing?
