Really nice room. I agree with staining the concrete floor. Good idea not seal it until you know how much water vapor is percolating through it.

Trimming out with pine instead of plastering the joints was a good idea. The pine will mellow down to a warm pumpkin color.

Sorry the thread turned into a Jenny Craig commercial for a minute there. DAMN YOU homebrew calories!

Thanks for the compliments guys. I am in the process of opening another PT practice, so what little free time that I had to work on this project has been a little occupied. I did manage to find 1 1/2 hrs today to work on the trim, but still have about 30% more of the room to do. Hopefully this weekend I can find some time to finish off the trim, then onto flooring.

Thanks man!

I did manage to get about 90% of the trim done and should be able to finish it off tomorrow. Slowly, but surely it's coming together.

Thanks man, I appreciate it!

All trim is complete in the brewery, just need to clean up the space and apply the clear coat. Just have flooring, keg polishing, and controls left. I'll post some pics when I get a chance, but am getting my a$$ kicked at work.....not enough hours in the day.

Fantastic build. Very jealous.

I do have one concern. I don't like have the milling station so close to the brewing station. Grain dust is very bad for cooled wort. And even though the dust will probably be minimized with your design, it's still going to get into the air. If you are extremely careful during the transfer of the cooled wort, you will probably be OK but I personally do all of my milling as far as possible from where the brewing and fermenting is taking place. You might want to relocate the milling station to another part of your house.

It's the first time I hear anything like that about grain dust. and after a couple hours of mashing and boiling and the exhaust fan running I wouldn't worry that much.

That is the basic hot side / cold side separation issue, given that there are all sorts of wild yeasts and bacteria that can be on the grain. It's not a problem until you end up with an unanticipated sour, lol.
