Over the years, we’ve come to realize that each iteration of our homebrew setup was lacking in some way: convenient access to water, adequate storage space, reliance on fossil fuels for heating water, or just a pleasant space to work and hang out while waiting for various steps in the brew process to complete.

In the past few months, we’ve carved out a dedicated workspace in the basement to address these problems. We’ve also purchased a few new pieces of gear to make brewing even easier. Join us for a tour of the new space and some more details that we share in the video.

New Equipment

Grain Mill: Barley Crusher MaltMill, 7 pound capacity.

Induction Burner: Max Burton 6450, uses standard domestic 110 (US) power. (Available at various online retailers.)

Boil Kettle: MegaPot 1.2, 10-gallon capacity with built-in thermometer and drain valve. The kettle isn’t new, but the bubble-foil insulated suit was created for the new electric setup.

Fermenter: Craftabrew Catalyst with the jacket.
