Wow, a separate building to brew in! Great looking build.

Those wok burners that you are using, how are they at maintaining a low boil?

I use a 23 tip one now, with 13 tips closed off. I find that they burn dirty yellow flame at low flame with natural gas. The tips of my burners are all aimed at each other.

I really only need it that low for 5 gallon boils, my 10 gallon boils are no problem.

next question: How long does it take to bring 12 gallons to boil with your setup.

That's so cool man. I'm a contractor in Maine and in my next home I'm going all out on a brewery. Great to see this. Check out hymiesbrew and Wayne Hymer inc on YouTube

Every day in my new garage is a constant battle between making new messes and cleaning them up. This weekend the mess won for a while and some real work was achieved. The drywall is now done, and we're on to the mudding and taping.

I had some help for this one. 12' drywall sheets on the ceiling can be unwieldy.


Making progress on a Saturday, despite our best efforts


Finishing the last of the drywall with the help of a Bohemian Pilsner, just the thing for the job.

I'll have to get back to you on these. I've yet to brew on the full setup, as the build has been getting in the way. I do acknowledge that maintaining these on a low heat setting will be tricky. On mine, when I reduce power below about 1/3, they burn red and produce soot.

I've brought 6 gallons of water to a boil quicker than I ever could before on my SQ14 LP burner, but I haven't yet timed it.

Well, what's in a name? As much as I like to think of the new building as 'my brewery', it is still located on my (residential) property, and therefore very much a 'homebrew' setup.

Perhaps someday of the knowledge and experience I gain from working on this project will help me with a proper nano build, but that's quite a ways over the horizon if it's there at all.

I believe detached buildings work in some states, just a zoning issue. You'll basically be set up f you wanna go commercial. Read the Healdsburg brewing company thread, sounds like you are in his circumstance.

Very, very cool though! Absolute best of
Luck and thanks for quick reply.

Great looking beer too? You're getting harder and harder to like...
