I am having the same venting setup that theelectricbrewery.com has, approximately.

6' x 2.5' condensate hood with a  450CFM variable fan, ducting through the attic and slopping down to vent out the soffit. I've not heard many complaints about the setup, hopefully that holds true for me.


Wow, very nice, Paul.

+1;  Now THAT is a vent!

I store my grain in the same room I brew.  I also mill in the same area.  My woodworking shop doubles as my brew house so I just turn on the whole room dust filter while I measure and grind the grain.  I also put a 4" dust collection port on my mill table and connect my 2 stage dust collector to it while running the mill.  As you might imagine I don't see much grain dust.   ;D

Now if I could just get the system to collect the saw dust and wood chips as well as it gets the grain dust, I'd be set.   ???

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

I haven't had issues with brewing and milling in same room.  I do not do both, particularly the cooling of wort,  simultaneously which is not necessarily the case for commercial breweries.

Yes, and the key word here is "simultaneously."
