Currently, 4" tri-clover on top w/ 1" airlock is as big as we are "comfortable" going...again, playing with lots of stuff...
Can you make a shadowless side manway... ok, just kidding.

That is the general idea for the add on unit. (By the way, I'm the other half of the Brewhemoth team). I wish I could be testing this right away, but with making a lager, there are many delays, the least of which is gathering materials. A dedicated ale man like myself does not keep many lager ingrediants on hand. The grain and yeast arrive on Wednesday next week, will make a two gallon starter and when its ready, the lager will begin. I will be posting daily on facebook how it is going, with recordings of ambient temps, beer temps, chilling water temps, so that the system can be honestly evaluated by all. Stay tuned.

Thanks for chiming in with the details, Dale!

Hopefully you get time to brew today...I may get time this afternoon before the weather hits.

I know! I talked to Dale, asking about a smaller one, or if one was on the cards for the future, and he said there wasn't! any plans to change it size-wise, just that there'd be a temp controlled one coming.

I'm really interested in one of these.. Can't wait to see how the cooling unit works out.

Dale speaks the truth...nothing smaller in the current plans.

No garage brewing for me, my brew area is in the ex-family room, see my Blog ( http://penrosepicobrewery.blogspot.com/ ) for pictures of it. Right now I can ferment ales in the upper 60 degree range, about 15 degrees too warm for a lager. We will see how the test goes. I'm confident it will work, and looking forward to being able to brew Scottish ales during the summer.

Fist picture with the hug looks a bit suspicious in a sexual way.
That thing is huge, congrats.

No doubt, but for some reason the one with shorter legs just looks... smaller overall. What's the height of that prototype?
