Default New Brewery Build

Over this summer, I will building a new brewery. It will basically be new from the ground up, including finishing the room I brew in. I am going to be building a Brutus 20 style system all electric, based off the boilermaker 20 gallon pots. It will feature a HERMS coil, be 100% SS, and hard plumbed. It will also be using little giant pumps, pressure sensors, electric ball valves and the brewtroller. My goal was to be able to brew 5-20 gallon batches (with the bulk of them being 10g) at as close to 100% automated as possible. I really want this setup to last me a few years, and am really pulling out all stops. Wish me luck..its going to be a long hard battle!

Here is what I started with (but just sold):

Default Parts Page

Parts are slowly showing up.

Range hood, purchased for $3.54 at an auction. Ebayed $200 worth in parts, now I have a 1200cfm 10" ducted real rood. I have not seen this hood cheaper than $1500 online. Dimensions are 36"Hx24"Hx19H.


Also got a 23x16x8 stainless steel cabinet For $50. Its weather proof, and should make a great control panel, it just needs a little clean up.



SS and parts showing up, still waiting on more...


Well thats about it for this week!
