My neighbor gave me a 12' dryer outlet cable last night! That'll save some cash!

amazing what a difference the floor makes. doesn't look creepy anymore. I guess the dirt floor kind of gives off a "tomb" vibe...

If beer porn is illegal in your country, avert your gaze...

MoreBeer had the stainless head pumps in stock, so I made an out-of-order order along with all my QDs and valves.

Brew room is wired, except for the main panel feed, I want to wait to place it until I have everything in hand so I can figure out location. I decided not to put up dairy panel or anything else on the walls. I plan to live here for many years to come, but I still felt like I should try to minimize the cost of things I can't take with me.

I started building the brew stand last night. I'm really stoked about how well and fast this is all coming along. I'm following Kal's design for the stand pretty much exactly, with a few tweaks to things like leg orientation, full countersinks on everything, etc.

I have this afternoon off to continue the build. I bought a floor standing drill press from Lowes yesterday, but they couldn't find it

So I guess I'll pick that up later on. No hurry regardless, the panel won't be here for a while anyhow, not to mention the perpetually backordered blichmann kettles!

I see your clamps have removable ends. It is great for turning the slide around and using to spread a wooden structure if needed. It is a great tool to have in some applications. Sorry to digress!!

I actually used them for exactly that on the bottom shelf yesterday. Handy indeed!

New toy today. Got it all set up by myself, that was a challenge! Mighty heavy head. This will allow me to make nice clean holes in everything.
