Well....we have a sad day here. I had to scrap the mini walk in project, seems my ac unit could only get down to 47f (I guess I should have tested that BEFORE I made Medusa). So now I have to tear it apart and find a chest freezer OR use my old one and run glycol from the garage.

I did get some work done today this morning got it all rocked, and did another test fit:


Then I got the floor tile down tonight:



Tomorrow I plan on tiling the walls(just above the knee wall all around, and the whole inset). I plan on starting the taping and mudding on monday/tuesday. I hope to have it all painted and ready to go by next weekend. Then I can start building the actual brew system. I have everything EXCEPT my kettles.

I like the color choice on the tile. What color are you using for the grout? Great project so far, can't wait to see it all finished up and running.

Well some more updates. Finally after 4 weeks of waiting I FINALLY received my pots. I had some spare time tonight while the final coat of mud was dryiing so I messed around with the valves and whatnot. I think I reached my final mockup.. and if I do say so myself, I think it looks down right sexy

Hopefully this weekend I will make a big dent in the brewery room itself. I will get the ceiling sprayed tomorrow night, then sand on Saturday. I also hope to get the walls all tiled and what not. Maybe Sunday I may be able to get the equipment in, in its final resting place.

Here are some pictures of the progress.

Room with final mud coat:


Furnace Area (which will be behind bi-folds):


Valve Mockup:


Inside of Boil Kettle, will feature a removable herms hex:

Wow, I can't believe I missed this all until now, but glad I did. I love tuning into an epic build like this without having to wait for finished or near finished pics. Can't wait for more progress. I can't believe how fast some of you handier type guys can work.

I forgot to add the soldering pictures. All fittings are soldered. I went with the hex nipples and they solder great.
Here is a shot of the joint before cleanup:

I'm a physical therapist and the furthest thing from a plumber I could be.

What are the blue things?

Also what are the things that look like it holds antidote to cure biological warfare? the things that appear to have glass tube inside of a metal bracket?

Is there anywhere I can read in depth instructions to construct these systems?

Thanks, BTW very sexy!!!

Looks like to me the blue objects are automatic valve controllers and the glass objects are sightglasses. Beautiful setup.
