    Designed a vent hood for my Digiboil today using an old stainless steel milk strainer.

    Anybody else find an unexpected "2nd Life" for equipment they already had access too? Let's see some pics...

    I used the frame from a cheap old desk chair to build a bench for my Digiboil. The arm rests are just high enough to gravity feed into a fermenter. Bench.jpg

    Sounds like my way of life! Take a look at my last post in "I brewed today" ...those are a couple of shipping containers for frozen foods! I cut a hole in the top to let the fermentation lock stick out....and that housing for the controller is an ice cube tray, the 120v outlets are salvage as is all the wiring and the rest of the box! What can I say.....I'm a junkman!

    A huge bowl for family reunions, I don't go anymore so why not use it for brewing

    Pairing up with that thread on bread baking....while not truly "Second Life" but more like 'Second Purpose"....I have one of those over the range Microwaves that I use as my proofing box when I am making bread! The hood lights make the inside of it about 90° F ….I just punched these two loaves down for a second rise.
