15 years ago age I came back from my Brittish OE with a dream to start my own Whiskey distillery...............after working in north eastern Scotland planting and harvesting malting grain and living in whiskey country I had come home with it in my veins if the Scots sarted doing it hundreds of years ago how hard could it be.
Well when I got home I seeked advice on getting going, I met a old bugger who told me to brew beer "its easy to make and cheap to start out" so I got some gear and winged it...............first brew was a partial mash that ended exploading all through my cupboards ,second brew I malted my own barley and did a full mash the only problem was the barley was for stock feed and the beer ended up cloudy with lots of strange flavours and I nearly buggered the oven roasting the grain and then I discovered extract and started enjoying my beer ,but soon my future wife came along and found my time was taken up by starting a family and before I knew it I had 4 kids and had not brewed in 5 years.
So again im doing my 15ltr full mash brews and loving it ,I still want to take it up a notch so I am getting some gear together to build a single teir brew rig with 72ltr pots for 50ltr brews and maybe one day start a boutique brewerey brewing beer with my own barley............this time a malting barley lol
Heres my plans for my rig ,I have the pots(pujadas),burners ,pumps and atm sorting out the plumbing/taps/joiners, frame, wort chiller which im thinking a plate chiller and a fly sparge .All the plumbing is 1/2 inch S/S 316 tube
