So it is my turn to document another electric brewery build. Budget is extremely limited so I will try to save wherever I can and sometimes the build may stall for a while but it will get done.

So here is the beginning.
We have the space allocated to me.
marking the space for sink and stand.
Base for the brew stand.

Here is a little of the goodies I bought over the last month or so.
My best catch is the 50L Stainless Steel Turkey Fryer Pot from home hardware for 69.99. I'll get another one when I can. I'll be picking up my cooler at Walmart in williston for 25$ cheaper than in Montreal next weekend. then I'll have to order the valves and bulkheads.

here is the latest. not finished but going with time and budget. With the lack of room for all the equipment, this stand will help with bucket and carboy storage. it is a bit high but I did want a lot of storage. next is closing it up a bit and purchasing a pump and another pot. Does anyone have experience with the pump from http://greatbreweh.com/Beer_Pump.html ?

those pumps took a beating on here. . .but even if you have to jury rig fittings and stuff, they are cheap enough to tempt me despite the bad reviews. Search on here for them, pretty sure i read some bad stories.

The pump works great. The customer service took a beating, not the pumps. There were some concerns about the stainless steel fittings not being npt fittings but I have not seen anyone say they leak or have issues, including mine.

Thanks for those replies guys, told myself that it's better to ask more then less. I also found stories of people having problems but isn't that the case with any products. And the tubing they sell is also very cheap.

Integrated the mill in the stand to save as much room as possible. Old drill to drive it. Love these old Black and Decker drills they have an adjustable speed knob and you can lock the trigger.
