Every time I see your pics I get the almost overwhelming urge to masturbate. Is there something wrong with me?

Yes there is. Fortunately the rest of us are normal so you're safe.

That could probably brew for a pub. How long does it take to do a batch? Beautiful. Bet it's responsive.

I do have a pub on the other side of this shed, shots of that at the beginning of this post.

Start to finish- 5 hours to do a batch , I am nearing 250 batches on this system, so I have it dialed in pretty well.

The best part of it is clean-up and having everything you need close at hand ( no pun intended , capozzolli  :o).

2 items on my list for improvement in 2011 are :

1.) a pressurized keg washer system ( which I have been collecting parts for and have a really cool design lined up)

2.) a milling station that automatically weighs grains in the hopper

Actually, it's not that complicated.....put the mill and bucket on a scale.... Not sure though that gaining 7 seconds is a priority for me at this moment.......still working on draining the tun in under an hour..... ;D

Wow!  How much time do you have into that?

I started on the shed in Oct 2008 and finished in April 2009 , not too bad , but lot's of long winter nights ...

And if I'm correct you took the pics soon after finishing it; looks like your TV is tuned in to The Masters.

I only looked at the first page, but you must be a dork if you only have 24 friends in your mug club.   ;D  I am totally kidding, that is an awesome setup.  I can only dream of something that cool.
