    Brew shed walls

    FRP works great for what you'll need it to do. Easy to work with (cuts easily, applies easily, and cleans up very easy). I chose the textured panel rather than the smooth panel since it has the increased chance to get gunk (brewing stuff, dirt, cobwebs, etc.) on the panel. I am just finishing...

    Never seen this before

    Hello, Saturday afternoon (6/4/2022) I brewed a 5 gallon batch of Pilsner. I used 10# Weyermann Barke Pilsner and .5# Weyermann Carahell and 1 oz Tettnang and 2 oz Saaz during the boil. I recently purchased a 2V system and have struggled with stuck mashes so for this batch that I'm describing...

    Adventures in Homebrewing (aka

    That really sucks if they don't honor your points! I had around $80.00 worth of points. I called the phone number and the person that answered (a man - not sure of his name) sent me an email with a gift card with the value of my points. I understand that they are now owned (partially or...

    Walk in cooler insulation

    Short answer is yes you should be able to use foil faced insulation directly against the existing sheetrock. Make sure you tape the seams. Maybe you can recall if your existing sheetrocked wall has poly (plastic)? Remember any moisture generated or inherent will need to "go somewhere." Take...

    Walk in cooler insulation

    IMO, the type of insulation in the walls will be a factor in your concern of mold. You should determine if it is batt insulation or rigid. If it is rigid, hope it's closed cell. If it is batt, you'll definitely want a vapor barrier (between the exterior wall and your interior wall) although...

    My first Keezer (10 tap)

    Your keezer is nicely done. Can you tell me a little more about your brewing set-up and process? Do you do BIAB, 2V, 3V or hybrid? What size batch(es) do you typically brew? Do you store ready-to-drink beer in this keezer prior to hooking up the keg? I'm curious about your current set-up...

    Walkin Cooler TX Build

    I built a walk-in-cooler a couple years ago. Mine is 4 x 8 x 7 (outside dimensions) on wheels. I used rigid (5.5") insulation with spray foam in the gaps. I sandwiched the insulation between 2x6's for framing and 3/4" plywood for the wall/floor/ceiling sheathing. It is very airtight and I...

    Kegerator build: need help deciding how many taps

    My current keezer can hold 8 kegs since I moved the C02 (20#) out of the keezer. Although I am able to leave the Nitrogen inside (smaller bottle on the shelf). I started with 3 taps through the collar but switched to 5 after about 3 months. I converted a chest freezer into my keezer.

    Backyard Brew Shed / Bar

    I applaud your initiative. I have a 4x8 (outside dimensions) walk-in-cooler that I built. For me, here is what I would change: First think of your refrigeration. Mine uses a CoolBot and a 8000BTU window AC unit to cool. The CoolBot is great! The AC unit does a great job at cooling but it's...

    I built a walk in cooler - on wheels

    Honestly, my short answer is "no, not really on the inside of the cooler itself." However, the longer version, not really inside the cooler itself; however, it has crossed my mind numerous times and obviously I have tried taking that into consideration with my construction method and...

    I built a walk in cooler - on wheels

    Thank you! If I understand you correctly, I have done the finishing you are suggesting. The walls, floor and ceiling are all 7" thick (3/4" plywood + 5.5" lumber and rigid insulation + 3/4" plywood) adding up to a R Factor of about 29.38 (.94 plywood, 27.5 rigid insulation (5pts/inch) .94...
