I didn't know you actually brewed beer  ???


"Brew beer" is a very loose term I use for what I do.

  I posted a couple days ago about mixing .5# of roasted barley in my IPA grain bill, at the LHBS. I got all picked out that I reasonably could. The brew is under way, but I now seem to have a black IPA. Oh well. I'm still making beer, eh?  ::)

  So I was getting grain for 2 beers this long weekend. A pale ale, and a breakfast stout. Had all my grain for the pale ale in a bag. All I needed for the b-stout was .5# of roasted barley, I have eveything else at home. So, me being the numb nut that I am, takes the .5# of roasted barley, and throws it right on top of my pale ale grain. I got to spend the evening separating roasted barley, from two row, and Carapils... ::)

   Good news is, I'll get to try out my fancy new  50' chiller.

  Almost a single. The mash tun will be gravity fed into the BK, but the HLT will be pumped into the mash tun. So, basically, the boil kettle and HLT will be at the same level, with the mash tun just above the boil kettle.

  I have a buddy who hals steel for a living. He came over this weekend for a beer and a tour of the brewery. I was explaining to him my plans for a new rig. He asked me how much of what I needed. I figured I will need 2 - 69", 2 - 71", 8 - 16", and 2 - 30" of 2x2 1/8  inch steel. He told me it was not a problem. His employer let the  guys take pieces they need for personal, or friends projects. So, I gave him a cut sheet, and in a few days, I should have all my parts, pre-cut, and free of charge! CHA-CHING!!!!!!

IIRC, I just yanked the inducer motor out of a 90+% furnace we replaced. The hood is 24x24, and tapers to 8x8. The exhaust is nothing more than 4" flexible chimney liner. Took me minutes o build, and it was all free.

Most importantly i use a blue cooler. 

It's good to know you;re making spectacular beer.  Blue coolers have been known to give 137% efficiency.  ;)

I still remember the day I discovered that. I can make a batch of Imperial Porter for under 5$ with numbers such as these. (You have to boil in SS to get proper hop utilization though. It's a little kept secret, you can 25 IBU from one hop pellet, in you use SS)
