Simple ten gallon electric heatstick basement brewery. 44 and 60 quart kettles not shown. Stand was
a wooden bunk bed that was cut up and repurposed into a brew stand. Window fan keeps humidity in
check during brewing, I do run the fan for a couple hours after the boil to air out the basement.Skateboard
aids in wheeling heavy kettles and kegs about the brewery.

My BIL sent me a link to an article in Popular Mechanics. It shows nine brew rigs. I thought I'd share it here.

I really like the pool table / multi use setup.
Looks very nice and compact.
Do you throw down a plastic floor pad or something or are you just so good you never spill anything?

Nothing wrong with making good beer. It is good beer right?

Thanks KK, Bought the pool table from a vendor in Texas and picked up about 900 lbs of oak and slate at a freight dock, assembled and felted the table myself...bit of a challenge...but I think I did as well or better than the kids they send out from the local table place.

Sure I spill on the floor, water as that just dries up...a couple of drips of wort now and then that I stomp w/ a paper towel...brewing over carpet keeps you on your toes...it's really not hard once you are comfortable. It's just a basement w/ short pile nylon carpet...you can't kill that stuff. The carpet is another reason I don't use glass carboys...probably take 10 hours w/ a shop vac to rinse and vac 5 gallons.
