Been a while since I've updated the brewery/bar build thread. It got nice outside, so we've been tearing apart the backyard and doing a full work-over on that too. Current goal is to have a new deck built by the time the KCBM Oktoberfest party hits our backyard. Oh yeah, and we've been brewing 90 gallons of beer for our wedding! Whew.
Some small progress:
I built a clip-in system for one of my gas manifolds, so there is a female gas inline QD on the manifold and several attachments for the male QD: picnic tap for flushing carboys in the sour area, ball lock gas QD for purging/sealing kegs, the Beer Gun clip in, and a clip in for the closed transfer system.
All of the male clip ins, with the picnic tap being long enough to reach the sour area:
Transferring a Dubbel for souring, glass carboy flushed with CO2:
Using the same system, different clip in, to close transfer from a keg to a CO2 flushed carboy:
You guys should know my need for organization by now:
Restart of the sour beer pipeline. I should really get another lambic going.
I never did post pictures of the interior of the kegerator, but here's Helga! I have 1/4" clear line for the beer line and 1/4" black line for the gas line. The two colors help me keep my sanity. Otherwise, it is just a mess of tubing. The clip in line is the one on the far right.
I mounted the spools of tubing to the joists to keep them out of the way:
In somewhat related news, I did manage to finally understand how to wire a temperature controller on my own! Watch out world!
