That looks fantastic. I'll add this to my list of references. Got the first couple deliveries of stainless this weekend for my build, and more on the way. Thanks for posting.

Please tell me that's the location used to brew as well!? That's awesome.
My goal is an indoor brewery to sit in the bar area. Hoping to just get setup for electric first. Then I can worry about making it pretty enough to be placed in the bar

Very cool setup! Since it appears that you are brewing indoors, what do you do about the steam?

Very Nice. I am a huge fan of compact rigs.

Did you have trouble working with the 1/2 copper? Was it easy to bend? I am thinking of using bendable copper on my next project.

If you look at the top of this picture, you'll see a fan on top of the bookcase. I think the fan's original intent was for drying carpets, but it does great with steam and smoke too... Window is open...



I also forgot to post this one earlier; the inside of the boil kettle:



I hope to have a couple small videos up later once I solve my formatting issues...

Yes, what he said. My first thought when I saw the "Indoor brew in action:" picture was where is the humidity going to go.

I used soft copper for all the bends and just did it by hand with the spring-tool-thingy to prevent kinks. Took a bit of muscle, but I did not use any specialty tools. You can't get a real tight diameter though, which is why I went with the soldered elbows in some places...
