My brew area is a little different. It is in the basement, however my basement is 3/4 above ground and 1/2 is built on a slab and there's a crawl space under the other half.

I built the brewery on the slab side but could access plumbing and electrical through the bearing wall.

This utility room is about 14 x 30 feet. I started by removing the carpeting.

Then I insulated the outside block wall that's mostly above ground:


And installed LVP flooring, it's waterproof and easy to clean:



Control panel is mostly stock Kal with no timer:


HLT with silver soldered fittings:


Sparging, need to mount pumps still:


No issues the system works great, thanks Kal!

Very nice Larry! Thanks for sharing!

(Note: I fixed your image tags to make the pictures appear inline, though given the high resolution you may want to just have links or use smaller images).

Cheers!

Kal

Are those images reduced 50% too large still?

Nah, I'm sure that's fine for most.
