Great looking brewery.

Only thing out of place is the stair railing. I think an Austin Powers stainless stair railing would fit in better.

Seriously though, please tell us more about your lab gear, and process controls. Also, I missed where you located your mill. Please add pix of that area.

I followed your FB link, thanks for illustrating more of the build there.

Thanks for the pix, and documenting your build. It is really a nice set up!

Yeah, I could use some cool stairs. I am keeping my eyes open. I just ordered a nice pub table for the brewery. I still need to get a larger conical fermenter...at least 15 gallon. I have a 7 gal conical so when I brew a large batch, I have to split into the conical and glass carboy. One refrigerator and the smaller freezer is for fermentation. The other freezer is where I age and force carb (w stone) and the refrigerator with taps is for serving. I plan to build a walk-in for everything. That would save space and electric bill. As far as the lab is concerned, I am just starting out. I have a compound microscope, bench ph meter, and micro centrifuge. I also just purchased a larger stir plate.

I added a few more pics of the different angles of the brewery. The mill is in one of them. I mounted it but still use a drill. A motor is still on my to do list.

Everything looks awesome! Nice use of a garage!

Where did you get the stainless sheet for your backsplash, and how much was it?

Thank you. I got the stainless sheets from Ebay I think for around $25.00 each. I dont recall the name of the seller but I am sure you can find plenty of good deals there. They came a little damaged on the corner due to shipping but not a big deal.

Thanks! I'd been searching a lot of places, but didn't think to look there - have a great Labor day weekend!

Damn, that's one if the best most professional home setups I've seen. I'd say you're pretty ready to go pro. Working in the industry is one of the most challenging careers you can have, but for myself it has been the most fun and personally gratifying. The best of luck to you.

This might be a dumb question but..... How do you empty out your mash tun after each brew on one of these rigs?

Clean up...

The first time I brewed on it, I shoveled it out with horse feed scoop into a trash can. It was a lot of hard work. If you want to take off all the probes and take out the elements, you can pull them off...just not a full mash tun...you still have to empty that. So I came up with a way to get everything clean....I got a large shop vac. Now I just suck all the grain out then dump the vac into a heavy duty contractor trash bag. I have to dump it a few times. I then spray out/wash the kettles in place with hose and suck the liquid out with the vac. It works great and makes fast work of it.
