For much of this year, I have taken to making my own beer.

I did all grain homebrew with a friend back in the '90's, on a similar size scale, but much more primitive, lifting and pouring hot liquids. Took two young fellers to lift the kettles.

Below are some pictures of current set up. Everything is moved around with pumps. Made the kettles out of old kegs I found doing yard clean ups.

Of course, there are digital, electric and programmable ones you could buy, but this rig is basic and effective, and relatively inexpensive.

I pump the wort, usually around 11 gallons a batch though a plate cooler down to cellar where it spends time in stable temps.. More is involved, but that is a summary. Each of the two fermenters in cellar holds a 10 or 11 gallon batch.

Any one else have other extra curricular activities bamboo?
