Default My current Kitchen setup

Thought i would upload this whilst ive got the boil on and SWMBO is sitting on the couch complaining that "the whole house stinks of beer".

here's a couple of picture of my AG kitchen setup.

it shad a couple of minor tweeks since i first started brewing AG a couple of years ago.

18L SS stock pot (bout off ebay) HLT/Boiler
1 32L food grade bucket with snap shut lid (Amazon) - Mashtun
1 6" SS bazooka filter (ebay)- Mashtun
1 1/2" BSP ball tap valve (ebay) - Mashtun
1 23L plastick foodgrade bucket (Amazon) - to decant wort into from mashtun
1 digital thermometer (ebay)

To insulate the Mashtun i made up my own thermo jacket using heavy duty bubblewrap, heavy duty tinfoil and spray glue. i also used a thermo windshield protector which i cut up and made a cover for the lid.

my hop spider is made from a little round cake tin from TKmaxx (£2) a large hose clip (ebay) and 3 120mm bolts with nuts.

the hop spider works a treat and cost less than a fiver.

All in my whole set up costs about £60 max and has a much better workflow and is much tidier than when i started.

pics to follow

Keep trying with the pics. There is a thread to tell you how to do it somewhere.

My missus left me, and I love the smells as I brew - the maltiness of the mash, roasty flavours coming through in the boil, then of course the hop aroma!

My son is only 11 so doesn't appreciate beer, but he doesn't complain - though I try to work my brew days into when he has a party or sleepover to reduce distractions.

My set up is actually pretty clean, there's a bit of water spillage here and there. because the the sink and cooker and kettle is on on the same workbench area there is very little moving stuff about.
