192brewing.com brews in a 12x16 shed.  That one looks great, although I might go for one without the wasted space of the porch.  Than again, a porch would be nice :)

Wasted space?  No way!  That's where all the lies get told.    ;)

 Dude! I just noticed this thread! Looking great man! Love that you got 220, 30a out there. I'm really kicking myself that I did not run more amps out here to the mancave. When I built it, I had a suspicion I would later add a brewery on, but never dreamed that I would want to ever go electric. some day down the road, I may be running a dedicated brewery service out here.
 I also really like you use of Durarock. I plan to do the same by my burners, and sink. Can't wait to see some more pics of it.
 
  BTW, whoever if was that mentioned buying a shed.....Do it yourself. It's a LOT cheaper than buying a package. I have somewhere between 3500-4000$ in the mancave. It's (16x12, the main part) And that is finished. Insulation, drywall, wiring, paint, flooring....I could not come near a 16x12 prefab, and then finish it for that.

The porch is where you go to drink said beer.

The porch is not included in the measurement so 12x16 is the size of the interior area so the total outside length would be closer to 12x20

Nice! I'm very interested to see how this turns out. I'm building a house and have included a dedicated room in the basement for brewing. Besides a sink and a floor drain, I don't really know what the hell I'm going to do.

You should really consider a little area you can put a small window ac unit in, to ferment. That's a must for any home brewery IMO.

The "fermentorium" is well worth the dedicated space and cost of electricity.  Plus it's a great place to hang out during the dog days of summer.  Cool air and the aroma of fermentation are hard to beat!

perhaps in the future.  for now the chest freezer will have to suffice.

That is a good start Paul.  The sink and drain are things that you will appreciate in the future.

Someday if I am motivated, I should post my pics.
