So, I decided not to build my system, as I was still finding it very hard to prioritize the time necessary to build out all the necessary components. Instead, I bit the bullet (with a little help from the stimmy) and bought an all-grain brewing system from kegfactory.com.
After doing a lot of research, I decided the right fit for me and my garage was the 17 gallon BrewZilla.
This single-vessel brewery will allow complex step mashing and everything for a very reasonable price, and I’m looking to brewing a lot of beer on it this year.
Hopefully, I can pull it out of the packaging this weekend and work though the initial setup. I have some other projects going on this weekend, as well, but I would really like to get brewing ASAP.
I’ll keep you posted.
