The bottle rack looks pretty nice, is it attached to the bench support or is it just balanced on those tippy single legs?

i dig it, but i'd deff use more shelving.
i have roughly 300-400 bottles that i use. so i'd need like 40 of those racks lol
my only suggestion would be additional shelving :thumbup: or even a peg board for some of your hanging items (spoon, tubing, hydrometer, thermometer etc)

Since I have never bottled, I could just slide the kegs under the bench. I keep most of the small bits in a couple storage bins to keep the dust out. I just stack and slide under the bench in the garage. my turkey fryer pot that I use for sparge water fits into my keggle, the IC fits into the pot, as does my pump and mash paddle, it all gets set on top of the burner in a corner as well.

looks great. I would say go more vertical. it also looks as if you don't have small kids. my kids would be all over that stuff.

is your garage temp controlled? that fermentation might be a bit high if not. Plus, get that carboy out of the light!

Best keep that beer covered to avoid skunking from the light, toss a dark t-shirt over it.

Is the compressor on the left for forced carbonation?
