My Brother-in-law made this mash paddle for me. It's sweet. Can't wait to use it. Installing my vent hood tomorrow or Friday.

I have some new pics that I'm trying to add to this site. I'll post a new one here in a sec. I build a B10 that will use NG as well as The Beast! A 6'x6.5'x3' fridge, two zones so I can lager when I need to while keeping everything at serving temp. I should be lagering now since the temp outside is 2F.

Progress on the brewery. You can see the vent duct fan in the hole in the ceiling. The thing is rated at 1250 cfm.

Nice!!!

I was thinking about going the Natural Gas route but then found out about the vent hood requirement. I guess it's doable (as can be seen in you photo).
Post some pics when you get it all done.

I will post more pics. Yes NG is doable. I had 5 plumbers come out to take the job of running and hooking up the gas line. They all bailed. Ran the gas line myself...no leaks. But won't do a test on the B10 until the hood is in place. I scored the hood on a online auction for $120. It's a Vent a Hood and goes for $1200. I think that's a good price..lol.
