Hmm.  Will have to consider that when my two fermentation fridges kick.

Here is the glycol system I think you will need. 

SS Brewtech Glycol Chiller 1/3 hp $999.95

I'll hold off until they offer a jacketed fermenter. The current internal cooling coil fermented look like a nightmare to clean.

I used to have internal coil fermenters for couple of years. It was quite easy to clean with CIP.

So far so good Paul. My buddy got a used sink just like that from an old commisary at our local university. Lucky bastard!

hehe - yeah - do it right the first time so to speak - I hope to be in this house a long time. 

believe it or not, I got the hood, sink and faucet for what I thought was a pretty reasonable price.

Good for you Paul. I dream of having a dedicated brewery so I can brew much more often. And having tasted your beer, I know it will go to good use.
Don't let the bastards cheer you up.

Paul,
I grew up in Milwaukee in the 50's and there was a Blatz brewery.  Any connection?  Is this the rebirth of Blatz beer?  I don't know if it was good.  I was too young to drink beer.

supposedly, very distant, yes.

My Blatz beer is a LOT better than the commercial Blatz beer.  But you can only get it at my home, and its only made 10gal at a time...

A few odds and ends still to do  (like ceiling fan) but it's pretty much done and ready for brewing tomorrow morning:
