Ha Ha! Sorry about the delay for posting. Really, I have been waiting on the kettles. Actually, they are scheduled for delivery wednesday. It has been a long haul since I last brewed so I am very anxious! I have attached a pic of my new lab set up in the brewery. I have purchased a nice microscope, centrifuge, bench ph meter, and a larger stir plate. All that will help me with yeast storage, propagation, cell counting, viability/vitality testing, etc. I attached a couple of other ones I haven't posted. I will post more this week once I get the kettles.

The only problem so far is the epoxy floor. It has been peeling and chipping. I think there is too much moisture under the slab. I am looking into doing some type of garage floor lining. I found these really big vinyl mats you can use to cover. I guess I will have to choose between that and a new 15 gallon conical.

Here are a few more pics. One is the completed electric panel and the other is the patch panel. Then there is the completed vent w/ lights.

I am thinking fermenter first as well! That is my bottle neck right now. I currently have a 7.5 gal conical in a controlled environment (heat/cooling) and another freezer that can take a 6.5 gal conical. So for now, I will have to split the batch to each of these. The cool thing is I can use different yeasts to make a different beer...to create some variety. But still want that 15 gallon conical!

Got the kettles in the other day and just did the cleaning and passivation. I need to get the hoses cut and triclamp fittings added. Then I will hook the electronics up and give it a test run (just h20) this weekend.

More pics plzzzzzz. That is one sweet setup. How did the testing go? Are you brewing on it yet? Where did you get the kettles, stand and vent?

I'm in the process of selling my business,if it pans out this will be my next goal. Cheers!!!

Here are some more pics.
@VOCBrewery:
The testing went great and brewed my first beer last weekend. It went well but had a few issues to work out. The kettles are from Stout Tanks and I got the table (3 of them actually) from ebay. They got a little banged up during shipment but not too bad. I use one for the brew stand with a custom patch panel, another for a work table, and the third in my brewery lab. The vent I also got on Ebay. It took some searching but found a great price. The stainless triclamp hardware I got a Glacier Tanks and Brewers Hardware.

Good luck on selling the business!
