One more piece of news to share with you, since the group had so much good input on this.. A decision I made earlier wasn't sitting well with me. After declaring the floor conversation closed, and that I would leave it untreated, I've changed my mind.

I'm picking up a floor polishing rental kit (diamond grinder, etc) on Sunday and going to town on my floor. I decided that while I had too many concerns with the epoxy option (welding slag, etc), one more day's work would be worth it for a beautiful shiny (and mostly waterproof) floor. So we are grinding, polishing, and sealing.


Anyone who is going to be brewing on Sunday, please raise a glass for me while I'm on step #14 of the grinding process!

While I won't be brewing I will raise a pint to your awesome brew house/shop. Keep up the good work.

This is incredible! Just finished reading the whole thing. I know I'm late to the party with this but just wanted to share my appreciation for all of this. Well done!

So you are not going to use my idea? ... I can live with that.

I'm brewing a Pale Ale this week end, so I will raise a glass, look at my floor, and think of the epoxy coat it will one day have.

At this rate, pretty soon we homebrewers are going to be collecting outbuildings instead of freezers.

Well, you did help to inspire me to do at least something with my floor. The epoxy finish is beautiful, but there are too many what-ifs for me with it when it comes to welding, etc on it. The polished and sealed concrete is a beautiful look as well, with less potential downside for my uses.

DrunkleJon, I did a serious double take when I saw your name. By way of a fortuitous freudian slip (of my making) at a gathering several years ago, my family has a "Drunkle Jon" too!

He does not, but he appreciates my efforts.

Well maybe you can return the favor, and convince me to do the same.

What is involved in polishing and staining? I have a plan to convert my existing garage to a brewery. I do not weld, so the epoxy is not an issue. But I have seen some amazing stained concrete before.
