Some of you guys have been busy!!
2011 was my year to get back into brewing. After years of brewing 3-4 batches the past serveral years, I brewed about 10- 10 gallon and 2- 5 gallon batches in 2011.
The biggest change was the construction of my shop (40' X 60") with about 1/4 of it dedicated to brewing. I love it! I have a floor drain, 3 bay sink with hot water, and everthing is within a few steps. It really makes brew day a lot easier.
I started batch sparging and really like the time savings and the results.
I'm almost done with my 4 tap kegerator (actually it's a converted chest freezer). I called it a Keezer to my wife who said, "Oh the Geezer's Keezer." So I don't call it that anymore.
I started using a conical fermenter. I enjoy the ability to easily harvest yeast and dump the bad stuff.
2012- I plan on some upgrades to my system, finishing the kegerator, and some more work on my shop to make it more useable and better organized.
Beers to all in 2012!!!
