I bought all the punches.

Well, if you would not mind parting with them for a while I could definately use them. They used to have a sharing program from the electric brewery website but some a-hole did not ship the the punches back and won't reply anymore. Maybe we can work something out. I would gladly pay for shipping (and maybe put in a few homebrews when I ship them back).

If you are willing let me know.

Cheers!

Beautiful set up Paul - I'm racked with jealousy.

Looks like you found the perfect freezers for your 14.5G Blichmanns (I have the same).  Can you share the make and model and where you found them - I'd like to pick one up.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mike

thanks!

sure no problem - its these:  http://www.lowes.com/pd_54036-2251-LFFU14F5HW_0__?productId=1187867&Ntt=frigidaire+upright+freezer&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNtt%3Dfrigidaire%2Bupright%2Bfreezer&facetInfo=

You have to remove all the racks (they snap out) and front piece of the shelves on the doors (also snap out) and then tilt the conical so that the front "blichmann" symbol faces about 4-5 o'clock, but you are otherwise good to go - very easy.  I attached mine to some plywood so I could also attach casters and make it easy to make sure the conicals fit in without fidgeting, but YMMV.  I don't believe the conical will fit in the fridge with the casters sold by Blichmann, FYI

Thanks to Paul I'm eying a spot in my garage. There is a concern about the steam and where it goes in Blatzhaus Electric Brauerei!

generally, you would install a vent hood and exhaust fan - I had one installed in the house I was building where this system was originally intended to go, but given I am doing this in my garage, for now, I just open the big door and my back door and that seems to provide enough ventilation (i.e. no condensation buildup anywhere.

but one day I hope to insulate and AC my garage, in which case I will install a vent hood.

Thanks! No added heat from burners also helps probably... One reason why I want to go back to this type of brewing.
