My husband (I'm the brewer, not him) built me this awesome and compact space for me to brew in! I am looking into getting a Robobrew all-in-one electric system to go in the empty space, though I do have everything I need to brew with my current 5-gallon system. We don't have a lot of room, but I wanted a way to be able to have my system all set up so I could brew any time without the hassle of dragging everything out and putting it back. This set-up will allow me to enjoy my back patio an to convert it quickly into my little brewery, yet to quickly put it away when not in use. I can't wait to get a brew day in out here!

That's a cool setup in a great looking space - I could see brewing in flip-flops :D
But - tbh - that roof is even more intriguing to me. If that's coated with solar cells it's the tightest installation I've ever seen - and I've seen a lot of solar cell installations. Very impressive...

Cheers!

Yes! We have 39 panels, all recently installed by Tesla. We’ve only have two full
Months of production so far, but we’re racking up the credits so we can stay cool and not break the bank this summer. We had an excellent experience with Tesla.

Looks awesome! As soon as I saw it I said to myself "This has to be in California"... sure enough! I would love to build something like that but everything in that shed would melt around June here in Tx.

It gets quite hot in Chico- up to 113* in the summer sometimes. I just brew early in the morning and finish up before it’s sweltering on those days. I’m looking forward to my first brew in my new outdoor brewery tomorrow- on a gorgeous 75* day!
