Default My Homemade homebrew equipment thus far

I thought it would be fun to post all my homemade equipment to share with you all.

My 1st Homebrew DIY project imersion chiller.
when I started and brewed partial boils in kitchen.



I changed it to work better on full boils in my garage.

Here are some of my homegrown hops (1st year pics)











homemade water filter for hose water.



homemade kettle



hop bags



Works with coffee for coffee porter as well!



Dry hop bag.






brew in bag.









My Original "Swamp" fermenting chamber.




my temp controlled fermenting chamber with STC-1000 temp controller. (Fridge on right)









My kettle water volume checker works with all three kettles.






My mash tun

Beautiful! Spent some time on the DIY thread, eh? Good work. I've done many of those projects. I wish I had some where for a commercial fridge so I could build a STC1000. I like your stir plate.

Thank you all for the kind words this far.
If anyone has any questions on the projects let me know, i tend to over document my hobbies and have too many pictures of each project. Lol

Thanks. When I make something new I will post it here.
I am currently working on designing my 3 keg brew stand along with turning my shed into my own backyard brewery. Post up when that gets going mid summer.
