Well with all the wine kits and the recent group buy it was time to expand. My current brew room is for just fermenting and storage, all the brewing is done outside or in the basement. The new room will be a one stop shop for brewing, storage, fermenting and getting away from the kids! Old room was a 5x10 or so room and the new one will be attached to the old and opening up to a 12x16 room with some bump outs. I will still be using propane for the moment with the goal to change to electric sometime soon. But no worries I do understand the issues with propane use indoors and I am installing commercial blowers to exhaust and return fresh air. the area where the current room is will have a bar table along the wall that will also be the grain storage area underneath with a dart board against the far wall. The new room will be complete with a second wall bar with additional taps a 32" LCD, ceiling mounted speakers and sub and I will be building a mock phone booth around the pisser for those who are pee shy.
Day one tear down wall in current room to open up.
Day three most wiring in and water lines started. New wash sink area.
Drywall going up.
New nook where the fridge will go. On the outer side of the wall next to the fridge area will be my keezer with another 4-5 taps going through the wall to my soon to be wall bar.
So far about 2 weeks in and insulation is all in except for the bottom of the walls. I will be using green board for that since it may get wet and its heavy as hell so itís on hold until I finish the plumbing and have a few extra hands to help out.
Everything has gone pretty smoothly except for the drywall. I hung most of it by myself and the house is about 100 years old and everything is off angle and the floor varies by about 4Ē in some areas so my edges are not very pretty. I will be sanding like crazy to finish it but itís coming along.
