Well, I only am set upo to brew extract right now, but I am about finished on the design for my sculpture so that I can go AG.

I have:
  • 7 5 gallon glass carboys
  • 2 6.5 gallon glass carboys
  • 3 6 gallon glass carboys
  • 6 1 gallon glass carboys
  • 6.5 gallon plastic bucket fermenter
  • bottling bucket
  • 3 15.5 gallon kegs, ready to be cut into keggles
  • free fridge from CL
  • approx 10 cases of bottles (grolsch, bombers, 12oz, etc.)
  • Turkey fryer (brew kettle) from Lowes
  • Misc spoons, hoses, cappers, siphons, etc, etc, etc.

I think that's everything.

I'd like to say KISS, like orfy, but I'm too much of a gadget junkie. I clicked on everything above except plate chiller and sight glass.

In case you're curious, here's a fairly complete list of brew gadgets in about the order that I acquired them:
  • Haier kegerator (now converted to twin ball lock with a tower fan)
  • 2 20 lb CO2 tanks and regulators
  • 4 gallon stock pot
  • 2 5.5 gallon "Ale Pails"
  • Hydrometer and sample tube (still on my first one!)
  • Digital thermometer
  • Small stir paddle
  • Wing capper
  • 9 gallon stainless brew kettle
  • 6.5 gallon Better Bottle
  • Stir plate with several sizes of lab stir bars
  • Erlenmeyer flasks in 1L, 2L, and 3L sizes
  • Bottle tree (overflowing with bottles)
  • Bottle washer
  • Turkey Fryer
  • Corny kegs (about 9 of 'em)
  • CFC chiller
  • 60 qt Ice Cube mash tun w/false bottom
  • Sparge arm
  • March pump
  • Assorted hoses, fittings, and quick disconnects
  • Grain mill with 12" steel rollers (4-5 lbs of grain per min)
  • 20 gallon stainless brew kettle w/hops screen
  • 5 refillable 5 gallon water jugs (for getting good brew water at the store)
  • Giant NG burner
  • Small brew stand (not quite a sculpture...yet)
  • Copper coil that works for HERMS or immersion chilling
  • 21 gallon conical fermenter (3 more in the works...TBD for sales)
  • Brew closet (capable of lager temps when ambient is below 80)
  • Bench capper
  • Steam boiler and manifold
  • Drill operated paint stirrer (mash stirring)
  • Keggle (3 more in the works...TBD for sales)
  • Computer controller and software (still in progress, but working)
  • Peltier cooled 7.5 gallon Corny fermenter (still in progress...barely working)
  • Garden sprayer for sanitizing

Damn...now that I look at that list...I think I might have a problem...

...but it's a good problem to have...

I've got an immersion chiller. I'm trying to keep up with the Jones's the best I can. My next purchase will rubbermaid coolers, a bigger pot, and some more better bottles. But I'm probably going to have to hold off until XMAS or tax season.

Why I can't fit the car in the garage right now:
  • 40 gallon mash tun (converted marine cooler with copper manifold & ball valve)
  • 12.5 gallon mash tun (Cube cooler w/ copper siphon manifold)
  • 25 gallon boil kettle with octagonal copper manifold & ball valve
  • 15 gallon boil kettle with bazooka tube
  • 15 gallon Olympia keg HLT (with valve, site, & thermometer)
  • 7.5 gallon turkey frier HLT (with valve, site, & broken thermometer)
  • 150k BTU jet burner
  • 2x 55k BTU turkey fryer burners
  • 100 lb propane tank
  • 40 lb propane tank
  • 20 lb exchange tank
  • March pump w/ silicon hoses
  • 30' IC
  • 25' CFC
  • Thrumometer
  • Williams O2 setup
  • 1 15.5 gallon keg fermentor (converted Oly keg)
  • 3x 6.5 gallon glass carboys
  • 5x 5 gallon glass carboys
  • 3x 3 gallon glass carboys
  • Half a hundred 1 gal, half gal, and quart growlers
  • A bunch of bucket fermentors/bottlers/BinB mash systems, etc.
  • 1 Oly keg with top cut and female npt fitting welded, waiting for cleanup
  • 1 old aluminum keg, 13-15 gallons, not sure what to use for
  • 17 corny kegs, all ball lock
  • 2x 5lb CO2 tanks & regulators
  • 3 tap single door kegerator w/ 4 port manifold (sticky rear seal faucets)
  • Fermentation/lagering fridge w/ AC temp controller
  • Chest freezer (fits 6 kegs or 3 fermentors) w/ Johnson temp controller
  • 25 CU foot chest freezer (not yet on site)
Plus all of the little stuff. Next step will probably be a mill, I scored a main drive motor from a Xerox 4635 that should be up to the task.
This is the ORIGINAL Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. Nature's choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America's Best in 1893.
