New equipment
« on: January 09, 2015, 11:44:52 PM »
i finally broke down and put a proper mash/lauter tun together. Oh my, this is so much simpler than fighting my makeshift stuff. Brewing a Heffewiezen as the first as they have been the most difficult to lauter. Kicking myself strongly for putting this off soooo long.
If it ain't broke let me have a go at it.

I think the rule is 'It didn't happen unless there are pictures.'  ;)

Perfect!  I (we, I'm sure) just like seeing other people's setup.  Looks great, and I'm sure you will enjoy using it.  Love the Speidel as well - they are great.

Nothing wrong with looking.

I like the Speidel for the handles. I am disabled and it helps with moving them around. This is my fourth batch overall and appears to be going well. I am finally getting the hang of beer smith. I hit my mash in temp right on and had just the right amount of sparge  water. My brew assistant gives a thumbs up.

Your assistant gazes upon your brewing operation with utterly laid-back approval.

Great picture!!

Having grown up raising chickens in a barn I'm not sure I'd brew anywhere near them but if it works for you, great!
