I'm excited to give this setup a try! I've been brewing for years but never had a setup that actually looked half-decent (or didn't look like it might've contained toxic waste at one point). It's made from reclaimed wood and is designed to be super-portable - and if I happen to leave it hanging around my apartment, hey, it's art. What do you guys think?

This sure looks pretty, but I'm not sure what it is...

Cooler than hell, but not sure about the clear bottles? I'd go with the Cobalt Blue ones, just to shade the beer from sunlight.

It looks like the poster has taken "small batch quite seriously." I see two fermenters--I assume a primary and secondary. The place on the left is where he keeps hose for his auto-siphon or to serve as a blowoff tube (with the cork). It also has his brew log (I assume). I also see the thermometer and hydrometer. I assume the two small bottles are for yeast or priming sugar. It looks quite nice and it would be quite the conversation starter on the coffee table or a shelf.

Yeah and the conversation would go "Hey, what's that for exactly?"
