That barrel looks great in the room! I like the way you use a book to wedge up the carboy. I've been holding mine at an angle to get the last drops out all this time!

Nice.....Just Nice.......That is awesome I aplaude your drive and determination to produce great beers in a small space. BTW I used to live up on Whidbey I and I have to say that you are in a great location in the city (from looking at the Pictures thread) . Cheers

Insane? No, of course not! When it comes to making beer, we all have to sacrifice for it. I was trying to tell my husband that the laundry room is PERFECT for fermenting beer and wine. The problem is the washer and dryer take up too much room. He refused to remove them. I told him that's what laundromats are for- we really don't need such big appliances taking up a whole room. That space could be better utilized by turning it into a brewery. He mentioned psychiatrists and mumbled something about head examinations before he stalked off.

In your case, you don't NEED a living room. You can certainly LIVE without it. Living rooms are not necessary for living. You, my friend, have your priorities straight and are to be applauded! (And your wife must be awesome to see it yor way!)

Are you insane? Well, yes, you are. And the insanity forum is down the hall on the right...

Hmph, once you get past the initial shock factor (You want do do what?), I would think that SWMBO might actually like having the cask there. I mean, not only does it have a tremendous aesthetic appeal, but it also would be a great conversation starter. It's win-win, right? .

And I'll be brewing in a 250ft apartment; I don't know if that beats cask aging in yours, but it's close!

Conversation start: So, just why did your wife leave you?

Dang, what's a 250 SF apartment?

Now we know why you are working so hard on a peltier type fermentation cooler instead of making a temp controller from an old chest freezer!

Brewtopia's SWMBO IS awesome. I had the pleasure of meeting both of them and they are fantastic people.
