    Some of you have systems that are ghetto fab, and some have serious bling in your brewery.

    Let's see them! From ultra cool to ingenious use of homemade materials, we want to see them all.

    Here's mine!

    brewery1.jpg

    My HERMS has a bottom draining HLT and a bottom draining MLT. There is a tippy dump on the MLT, and I have a CFC. The HEX is in the HLT.

    The stand is a cheap storage shelf system, the wheels are lawnmower wheels.

    I call this my "ghetto fab" all electric HERMS.

    Now let's see yours!

    You really do?
    I am still assembling.
    In the meantime I am making some cider
    I wonder if anyone is more low-tech

    Here's my BIAB setup for brewing outside during the Summer:

    Just got this Digiboil. Using it to heat water and for the boil right now. Will be doing EBIB in it after a few mods. Nice to brew inside during the Winter. The old 10 gallon Rubbermaid MLT in the background. Winter.jpg

    You don't want to see my gear - my brewery is about as manual as it comes.

    Yeah...and don't let the red and white cooler go unacknowledged! From the land of hockey and maple syrup and "Oh Can-of-Ale" while I got the red, white and blue or as I call it...."America the Brew-da-full" :D

    I'll be here all week folks...remember to tip your bartenders and servers...

    You gotta start somewhere Craig I a little over a year ago I was brewing out on this horrible gravely dirt surface I hated it if I dropped anything! Now seems a world away from them days brewing on the patio with water electricity the swimming pool close at hand:p!
    One thing I'm sure your brew set up will be slowly changing as you adapt it to what/how you want to brew.
