A fancy Meth-maker? I guess that would be one who bathes and has all his teeth. AKA, a beginner.

Haha thanks for the feedback on my meth maker, guys. Made this while in the midst of watching Breaking Bad, so that might just explain it. It's definitely on the small side, designed to test 1 gallon batches, 2 at a time (single serving anyone?). 1 gallon in the primary, and 1 in the secondary or conditioning in those bottles, each of which is 1L. It's more of a display piece than anything, because my all-grain setup sure as hell isn't going to win any awards for beauty, and I'm tired of staring at plastic fermentors and behemoth carboys. The bit on the left is just storage, with a perforated bottom to let things dry. In a former iteration I'd envisioned it holding a hot plate to really compartmentalize the whole process, but that just seemed like an accident waiting to happen.

I guess it would be hard to explain to the insurance company, "Well, the fire was started by the hotplate on my mini-brewery."

Thanks Garrett! It's been interesting to experiment with the layout/organization, since brewing tidbits seem to just float randomly around the house without some kind of permanent spot to store them. I'll try and switch over to cobalt blue for the 1L bottles to help mitigate light poisoning (thanks Gear101). Not quite sure how to deal with the leftmost part (currently just storage for blowoff tube and extra stoppers). What's the smallest mash tun ever made?
