I received pictures of a customer's basement brewery from a customer recently along with a testimonial, and he asked that I share them on our site. They purchased a 50A Control Panel Kit for back to back batches and modified it to suite their needs.

Looks like a great place to brew! (I like the valve attached to the table stand too - though I'm not sure what it actually controls... Wink)

His testimonial:

Kal,

I can't tell you how happy I am that I found your site a two years ago. Up until then I was dead set on a gas fired system until I found The Electric Brewery. You saved me so much time and energy. After two years of planning and building I brewed my first batch today and I couldn't be more pleased with the result and your system. People are amazed every time they walk in to my basement unity room and find this awesome brew panel lit up on the wall. I can't thank you and Mike at Spike Innovations enough. You guys are truly the best.

Chuck M.

5th Ward Brewery
St. Charles, IL


He will be opening a brewery in Chicago under a different name next year: http://ontourbrewingco.com
Stop by once they're open and show your support if you're in the neighbourhood.

Cheers,

Kal

The valve is just for looks, it's a steampunk style table.

Cheers!

Chicago, under the name On Tour Brewing Co. http://ontourbrewingco.com
You can likely contact them through the website if you'd like more specifics (edit: or Chuck can confirm here).

Kal would be correct.

you can also follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ontourbrewing

Cheers!

Yeah I saw that on the website and when I tried to enter my email, I dont receive confirmation or anything. I tried a couple of different browsers as well... Could be a firewall issue though too.

It could be, I just registered with my second email account through AOL with no issues. Hope to see you at the brewery sometime next year!

Cheers!

ChukInaTRuk,
Do you have a close up photo of your basement control panel? I'm interested in your layout.

Here you go, I bought the DIY 50amp kit from Kal and added a timer and reset button, everything else is the same other than layout. One timer is set at 60min for mash and one 90 min for boil. Just have to hit the resets.

Nice. Was wondering how you found the sparge arm vs. recirculation after a couple years. Also like the anti-hammer standoffs on the water supply. Haven't seen this setup before today; really well done, especially your sign. Smile
