Cleaning out the rest of the garage to make room for the walk in as I type : )

J/K but it is definitely in the works.... I told SWMBO that I could build a big cold room in the garage for all her organic veggies....

With that large of a system you will need a walk in. I brew 25 gallons once a month and storing 5 kegs per batch is tough enough.

I probably brew about 30 gallons per month now but we go through it pretty quick so no issues there. When there are 16+ kegs it will be a different story so I agree. Moving to combo ferms/brites will help as well as I can crash and carb at the same time then push into kegs and it will be ready to drink. Having a cold room will make it easier and as long as it has its own entrance and is locked it will also help me with ttb requirements.....

So I'm reconsidering the propane part, and will most likely go all electric. Fastev had a great idea for leveraging cfc's as heat exchangers off of a recirc loop on the tankless water heater for step mashes. I like this idea over a rims tube for gentle heating of the mash with simpler clean up.
