Hey Cscade,
Looking good. Thanks for the 'tour'. My brew space is evolving. Going to be brewing batch #5 on my ElectricBrewery tomorrow afternoon. Looks REALLY nice man. I like the use of all the small storage containers and all those shelves too! Dang... how I would love to have a basement!

Did the "grain milling being close to the fermentation area" issue get discussed already?

Don't think so here...
I've heard some points on this but now I forget what they are. How close is too close? I plan to build a milling station next year some time and don't want to screw anything up.

I've read on here that grain dust contains goodly amounts of lactobacillus so it's a good idea to ferment and transfer in areas where there is little to no grain dust.

This is true - grain dust contains lots of undesirables in terms of contamination. It's only a problem for some processes though.

In my case, I am diligent about vacuuming up all the dust created by the milling process immediately after milling so it doesn't get "kicked up" again later. Also, my entire process is closed. I pump closed into the conical bottom-up while chilling, I ferment closed, I spund if not dry hopping, and I pressure transfer to kegs and fill them by weight.

So yes, it's a design consideration. But on my process there's really no issue.

Hey Huaco! Thanks for the kind words. Glad to hear your EB is working out well for you! I have 12 batches in on it so far, bringing me to a nice round "career" 50.

And I'm brewing again tomorrow!
