You need to upload your pics to a hosting site like www.photobucket or www.tinypic. Then you link the URL in your post.

Before I post any further pics and info. I have to give credit to 3 sources:

1) The Electric Brewery- the detailed work that I think everyone on this forum knows about is essential for any electric brewer. I can not fathom the amount of time he took to provide the resources on his site.

2) Stout Tanks- The 20.8 gallon tanks that I pridefully brew with were bought from conical-fermenter.com. His prices are great and the products are VERY well built. I still remember the day they arrived and how amazed I was with the "heavy duty" feel they have. They make the brewery feel "semi-micro" to me. I highly recommend these tanks to any brewer stepping up their system.

3) The majority of my thanks has to go to a fellow local homebrewer. His passion for brewing and the quest for great beers inspired me to follow in his steps. He also is responsible for the construction of ALL aspects of this brewery. He did damn fine work if you ask me. Thanks, again BN.

More pics to come...

I really dig the stand. Very similar to the MoreBeer Sculptures. You can't go wrong with that type of configuration.

The stand was modeled after the MoreBeer sculpture. It includes the "tippy" dump that makes cleaning out the 30-40 pounds of grain out of the mash tun a lot easier.
