Looks like a good start. I am about to build a FRP lined wood exhaust hood myself. If I were you I would engineer a more permanent solution to the ductwork. those "on brew day" set-up steps tend to add up. It looks like you could elbow off the side and punch a hole above the window. Just a thought.

Haasobrew, I would do a permanent solution if I owned the place, but I'm renting. Its been about a year now, and my method has been working out well. Its a bit of a pain and I look forward to a permanent solution once we find a house.

I went around and around about this. I was planning to just build one out of plywood and FRP as other have done. Ultimately I ended up scoring big time at a recycled building supply store. If you have something like that in your area, keep an eye on them for a while. I've seen 2 or 3 hoods that would work for me come through there in the past 6 months.

Here is my hood. I ended up paying $300 for it, which is more than I would have spent to build the plywood and FPR variety. It's all stainless though, and came with a 400cfm fan and lighting. I fully admit I got lucky here, and not everyone will be able to find something quite like this. My point is just that it is worth keeping an eye on these kinds of stores..you never know what will turn up.


More detail on it in my build thread (see signature)

This was posted November last year in a for sale thread. I thought it was awesome..... Does the trick at least. SeanGC was the OG poster of the pic.

^ Yea that is me in the picture. SeanGC is my brew partner. I am about to upgrade the hood to a longer tote, to cover the HLT and BK. It has been a year and still works pretty damn well.

Wow good idea for the tote. Might not look all bling bling but sounds functional

You might be able to use shower pan liner, I believe it is a (30mil) vinyl readily available at most hardware stores, it shapes easily around wood, and excess could simply stapled to the opposite side of the board, and trimmed to aesthetics. Awesome idea for the hood btw..

Looks great, Haasobrew! That is a lot like what I had planned to build. Do you have anything on the outside of those fans to prevent drafts from coming back in when not in use?
