Narvin, in order:

Barley...I have acreage in an undisclosed location.

No propane...a natural gas well on site and worse case I'd use wood. I have plenty of it.

Water, from a spring just like Abita

Cooling...root cellar, nice and cool in the hottest of days.

Battle...no problem. I load my own ammo too.

Urban living would be tough though...

Looking good already!

Not in Afghanistan I hope?

Nahh not anymore...I couldn't get enough after 20 years of service so I went back as a civilian contractor until I broke my leg.

Mark, they are from 2X4 Basics, they are a high strength poly-resin material. I have a reloading bench across from the brew station made out from the same.

The whole enchilada...


The Peninsula Pilsner...my first out of my head recipe. It is good and will be entered in my first contest.

I'm doing version 1.3.5 right now 8).

For those waiting this is an amateur setup, the most automation involved is a March pump to a 75' counterflow chiller. Which btw works so darn good! 2 weeks ago here i was able to pitch as the wort came out. It was insane!

I'm doing Denny's Rye on Sunday and should have everything streamlined for some professional pics...not pro brewing :)

Bump...I swear I'll get some pics up.

I've only brewed down there once and it was all herky jerky.

Still have to get the new process down.

Tom, I'm still working on the ventilation, plan is a to run a 24" ventilator plus window fans, an intake and exhaust. I did put a carbon monoxide alarm up as a safety precaution.

Whew, haven't been able to keep up.

I have just about completed our basement brewery project.

This will be so nice, I'm tired of dragging brew equip from basement to garage to kitchen to shed to garage...you guys know what I'm talking about.

Upgrading the beer dispensery unit to a 3 faucet deal, and got a dedicated lagering fridge.

Life is good!
