I know a couple of you have asked for pictures of my basement brewery, so I hauled out the camera this morning and took some shots. I do my boils in the patio off my kitchen, so this is the fermentation/storage/conditioning facility as it were.
Our house is old (built without plans in the 1940s at least) and the basement is a perfect example!
Without further ado.....
First shelf is quart jars of commonly used speciality grain and bags of various malts (wheat, vienna, munich, etc). Various sundries (spare airlocks, tubing, spices)
Second shelf is 12 quart Rubbermaid- crystal (25/40/60) mostly. These hold approximately 10 pounds of grain.
Third shelf: Base Malt. Pils to the left, Maris Otter to the right. I have a sack of 2-row that I haven't yet binned just out of the frame. An entire 55 lb sack fits in there with room for more.
The coffee roasting station. You'll notice the burner set up here; it's a convenient heat-proof stand for the heatgun and small metal bowl where I roast my coffee. The box fan is an ad hoc cooling apparatus. The hot beans get dumped into a metal colander and air drawn through to cool quickly.
Real ale conditioning in 5L kegs; this room stays approximately 55 degrees.
