Is that a compass for navigating through a brew session?

Every brewer needs one of those on his sculpture...

Thanks all for the comments....I grew up in the Marine Corps ...Force Recon and Small Craft (Boats/Amphib) so the navigation theme was a must. That is a compass (always wanted a Red Rider BB Gun with a Compass in the Stock) ...went with a brewery instead. I did build an Oast as pictured and I use it to malt barley right now. The idea with the navigation light is for them to light up as #1 & #2 pumps are turned on (Port and Starboard lights...lol) I love IPAs also ...so that's fitting to the theme on exporting beer to India. I ripped alot of boards to get that crate look on the mash tun and book/equipment storage. I hope you all enjoy looking through the pictures on here and facebook...it's always cool to hear poeple's reactions to your insanity moments of good ideas ("I think I'll make a brewery"...Wife says, the hell you talking about building now?!...lol)

I started brewing about a year ago and I really have enjoyed it... the fun is in all the Marines' faces I work with; they always enjoy the test batches I give away. The experience of brewing has been therapy after 17 year in the Marine Corps. Cheers all. Hope you enjoy the pictures...Travis
Looks Great!!
