Best news I've heard all day! The price is right and now I can see the quality is right!

Anyone do this build as a basement setup? Wondering how you ventilated? I am thinking of building this with the natural gas burners and I plan on buying one or two range hoods for venting with an additional fresh air return. Any help advising if this will work or not would be greatly appreciated.

I have been using this as a basement set up. I built a hood out of wood and bought an inline fan on eBay, goes right out the dryer shoot.

Thank you for the reply. I appreciate it. Any way you could post some pics of your setup and hood, please?

Not a very good picture and not very clean at this point.

What size fan and what is the CFM rating on the fan? I am really sorry for all the questions but I am obviously paranoid about carbon monoxide/ lack of oxygen, etc.....as I know nothing about HVAC and the likes

If I remember correctly it was around 750cfm and is 6", bought it on eBay for 70$ or so. I have a carbon dioxide detector right by my brew stand and I have never got a hit in the 10 times or so that I have brewed on it.

Also, I just keep my storm doors open going into the basement to make up for O2

Here is my brew stand, I am very close to being done with it, just have to mount the pump and figure out some stuff with my kettles.

Duke- i was actually thinking of doing 2 runs....one exaust fan and one in the opposite direction pulling in fresh air from outside to the stand. I would think that'd work, huh?]Thanks for all the help on this so far. Appreciate it.
