    Brew Bar

    Ok I originally planned on converting one of my basement rooms into a brew room. It was going to be more money than I was willing to spend. So when I was nearly ready to give up I ran into a discussion of brew hardware's Steam Slayer and realized it would take a lot less money to convert my...
