is that floor trough just dirt? it might not make such a great floor drain if it's just dirt. Other than that I see a lot of cleaning in your future. then after that I see a sweet brewery.

You're a lucky man to have that building for your brewery.

Graph paper! Psht... model that stuff in a CAD application! Seriously though, plan it right and you won't be disappointed.

Also, I'm jealous. That's a dream project you've got right there.

Looks like a great building with much potential. After the cleanup and build Im sure you will have a sweet brewery working. Keep us updated, I cant wait to see the finished product.

You could easily put a thin layer of concrete throughout the trough then cover it with tile, brick, or some other type of masonry, THEN that trough will be subperb for a hose down in a brew shed!!

Finally got a chance to clean the room out. Floor is in good shape. The trough is conncrete on the bottom. The only drain that works (there are 4) is the drain in the bottom of the trough. It shouldnt be a problem to fix the others though.
From the front door

from the back


Dimensions


Had one small setback though. The roof is leaking a little and rotted a few boards out of the ceiling. Which, btw is 4" tongue in grove. i think you can see some of it in the picture The stuff has probably been there 50 years and was in great shape except for those few pieces. So, i had one of my guys go in to remove the rotten boards to fix the leak. Well evidently he misunderstood and removed and burned the ENTIRE ceiling. that stuff is crazy expensive. So now i may be down to a cheap plywood.

So tommorow ill start back on getting the water ran in the room and start planning where im gonna put everything. I need to get the design layout so i can decide where to run the water lines and electric. Ill probably put a grate over the trough so it still drains but i can walk over it

That will be a sweet set up. I agree, keep the fridge and tank. I'd love to have a tank for brewing like that. Save you a bunch of trips, should be about $100 to fill it up. Put you a wood burning stove in there to stay warm in the winter months. This has a lot of potential.

I have a big tank outside for the gas. I love wood burning stoves, but for simplicity ill prolly put a few gas stoves or somethin in there on a thermostat. Ill run the gas lines straight to the heaters and the boil kettle. im sitting here studying the layout trying to decide on how i want this thing layed out. Im considering spliting it up. Maybe even a bar. I know ill need to build some kind of walk in cooler. Ive been searching craigslist for a large sink. everytime i find one it wells before i can get to it.

the fridge has been out for prolly 15 yrs. it was a makeshift tool chest.
