    Yet another brewtroller build -but this one is mine

    As part of my brewhouse build I am updating my brewery as well. I am starting out converting to electric, then slowly convert to (the dream) fully automated including transfer to fermenter and fermenter control. I am working on rough plumbing diagrams right now while I get the stand welded and...

    Control panel questions.

    2 quickies- Since I am starting small (2 5500W element eHERMS) but would like to keep the door open to maybe pursue even full automation in the future, I will probably be picking up an oversized control box. Since at this phase I don't know what my final layout will be and do want to...

    Bottles in central Texas!

    I am getting more kegs, so in the interest of room, I am reducing my bottle collection. I will have at least 8 cases of 12oz bottles (mostly brown, a small smattering of green) to get rid of as I empty them over the next couple months. If you are semi-local we can work out a pick-up/drop-off...
