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):

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!

Looks like it is going to be awesome.

Where did you get all of the valves?
