Nice setup Gert, are those no chill cubes on the bottom left shelf? What is the smaller unit beside the BM?
I wasn't planning on going for a run today but those cops came from nowhere!

What you see on the picture:
- the smaller unit beside the BM = a Kochstar Deluxe water heater (was my first brew kettle, but now I use it for sparging water and to heat cleaning water).
- bottom left shelf: reservoirs to collect cooling water (and to re-use as cleaning water)
- in the meantime (not on the photo) I have another malt mill (not the Corona but a 'walsenmolen'; don't know the English word: the cheaper version of a Krankandstein)
- I use a 50 plate wort chiller (and a pump to circulate the wort to the CCT)
- on the right side: Blichmann 54l CCT in a temperature controlled freezer
- another temperature controlled freezer for second fermentation in bottle.

Very nice :cool:

Do you pump your wort into the fermentor?
To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Yes, he is using it in combination with a 50 plate chiller.

Indeed, the set-up is: BM - 50 plate chiller - thrumometer - pump - CCT
And zlander: I lift the full malt pipe by hand (I only used the 25l malt pipe, I don't know if I can use the 50l by hand). But the table on which it is placed is so strong and stable I can stand upon it and pull as hard as I can. Should work.

Thanks everybody for the nice words on my brewery!! Makes me feel good. It's a pleasure to work in it indeed!

Hi gert,

That is one well set up brew area.

Cheers
