Hey guys

I'm a lovable British student and I'm doing a degree in biotechnology and have taken a special interest in brewing (student loans just dont stretch that far)

So I have decided to set up a private micro-brewery in my backroom, has anybody else attempted to build a 4 barrel system in their home?

Saint

You're joking, or are barrels much smaller over there?

So you want a private 120+ gallon brewery? Why?

Must be a pretty good sized 'back room'
