Ok,now that I finally am getting my brewing stuff in one place,I decided to take the 1st pic of my comp room/make-shift man cave. It has a ways to go yet,as you'll see developing.
http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/s...PICT0005-1.jpg
Not to mention,clearing a ton of windows 98 stuff,multimeter's, probes,etc off the top of the comp desk for my start on this;http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/s...PICT0004-1.jpg
I need to get some fair size French doors to fit the archway into the room. And a small room a/c unit to keep the fermenters comfortable. & boy,do I wish I could get one of those tables with the keg chairs that other member's wife bought him. Just got room for that,a fridge for beers/starters,& a tall cabinet for office supplies,glasses,etc.
Maybe a 20" monitor for the comp to watch stuff on.
But most of all,old beer neon's/signs,beer posters/pics,that sort of thing.
What ghetto man cave stuff are you guys putting together?

Starting to boil


Disconnected, stripped of insulation and moved to bathroom for wort cooling



Fermentation bucket and the element from a water boiler, Ye, I'd call my boiler ghetto.

Some these look pretty nice to me. I am stoop brewing atmo.

And for the record "man cave" makes me cringe. I have a music studio in the attic, which is where I go to get away. Was thinking about doing some construction and add a little bar but that would suck going up two flights of stairs when I want to drink one down stairs. Kinda screwed really.

Those are ghetto? I wish I could afford half of that fancy gear. Some of these pics have more money in valves than I have in my entire brew setup.
