The Original Rig

A new brewer's tools
Thar she blows! My original setup was procured on 1/21/12 from one of the fabulous Local Homebrew Stores in Seattle - Bob's Homebrew Supply. It's been a trusty format for learning the ropes and making some mighty fine brews in the process. It was also fun carrying all the gear home on the bus - we got some great attention and knowing glances. People in Seattle know their homebrew kit.  I'm essentially still brewing with it (pending the new build). Batch #10 just went into the fermenter last Sunday, its an experimental IPA which I have high hopes for - more later.

I've loved the convenience of brewing in my kitchen, but an ever increasing vision, a burning desire for learning and expansion and a recent introduction to the boil-over have me yearning for a bigger and better system. I've got a 3 tier gravity-fed keggle system in the works and I'll post about that soon. Maybe it will come out as a multi-post affair for ease of digestion.
