    McGsters Electric Brewery Rebuild

    I was able to get the hood done but sadly didn't snap a picture before i had to leave for a month. I'll be sure to post one when i get back. I'm trying to track down some heavy duty stainless steel hooks for suspending the grain bag and hanging my mash paddle and rig my ventilation up.

    McGsters Electric Brewery Rebuild

    I assembled the walls together with 5 strong tie galvanized brackets on each side, it did solid job giving the structure some rigidity. (ignore the skew in the photo as it is a panoramic to fit it into frame) The second picture is after i wrestled the walls into place. Next step is to...

    McGsters Electric Brewery Rebuild

    I purchased 8'x4' 20 gauge galvanized panels from my local ventilation store for a reasonable price (everything is reasonable compared to stainless) and laminated them to 1/2" plywood to enable me to secure shelving / hooks through the sheeting and into the wall. I'm very happy with how the...

    McGsters Electric Brewery Rebuild

    I looked around for different options below my brewery and for a variety of reasons (price / application) i ended up sticking with ceramic tile, once the grout is treated it provides an easy to clean and durable water proof floor covering. I built a 4 ft x 4 ft platform to lay the tile and and...

    Here is a shot of where the new brewery will be moved to, nestled between my beer vault and wall where an under utilized shelving rack is.

    McGsters Electric Brewery Rebuild

    After a few years of brewing on my steel shelving stand in front of my windows in the basement and many messes / spills, i decided i needed a more permanent home for my brewery that could handle the occasional spill / splash of boiling wort. I had also gone through several upgrades and...

    I hadn't thought of that but it would have been a great idea!

    Suitable Material For Brewery "Backsplash"

    I ended up getting a great deal on 20 gauge galvanized panels, they look great and are very rigid. I'll post some pics once i get them in place but i'm very happy with them so far.

    Suitable Material For Brewery "Backsplash"

    I thought about doing ceramic but really like the idea of using a solid sheet of something instead. Lots of support for the FRP - that was what i was looking at originally as well. I'm calling around again looking for cheap aluminum / steel if i can't find it i'll go with the FRP

    Suitable Material For Brewery "Backsplash"

    I was wondering how those panels would hold up to the hot liquid. I almost purchased them but decided to do some searching first I didn't find too much detail on them.

    Suitable Material For Brewery "Backsplash"

    After an incident with a camlock letting go in my electric brewery i'm relocating my setup to a new area and would like to install a backsplash to protect the wall from any splatters. Stainless costs an arm and a leg so i was wondering about other products like 20 gauge cold rolled steel...

    Starter without Krausen Wyeast 2124.

    Yes it was on a stirplate, which i normally do use and still get a krausen but i switched to a 2L flask from a 1L and i only had a liter of fluid in it so it could just be that the increased surface area made the krausen spread out. Just for the fun of it i decanted and did another starter...
