Good luck! My sister lives in Jax. Now that I'm in Atlanta, I can get there more often. Post when you open!

Brewed up another Strong Bitter (ESB) today. Trying to hone in on a good recipe for this style as the last one I made I did not think was great.Just brewed one last week. Split the 10 gallons into two carboys. One has WLP007 Dry English, the other WY1275 Thames Valley that I got for free. I want to see which I prefer.
I really like the use of aluminum and bolts you have here. Seems like the components might be a little close together (the cooler next to the burner), but it'll be adjustable as you grow into it. Nice job!Thanks. I was afraid the cooler would be too close, but there were no issues. Still, l plan to install a heat sheiled there, just to be safe.
Perfect. Right in the kitchen where it'll get the attention it deservesIt is actually in the basement. We just had it finished and the main room has a beer-centric theme. It is a walk-out basement. The sink is large and deep for cleaning kegs and carboys. The drawers hold brewing equipment and the brewing will be done on the patio, right outside (to the right of where this pic was taken).
Cool and very creative. It looks like you are using the same fridge with decorative cabinet doors in front. Does the top just lift off for access?Yes, it is the same chest freezer/kegerator in the "before" picture. The cabinet maker built a false front to hide the chest freezer, but left enough room for circulation. The false front slides out in case I need to pull out the entire kegerator. The "coffin" portion can be moved if I just want to take a peek in. The entire top comes off and can be slid onto the countertop next to it when I need to change kegs.
He recommended this for newer pros to keep from backing themselves into a corner when they can't score the hops the want.Correct. First time I had heard someone state that and now, this post. Maybe the beginning of a movement?
