Building a Dedicated Brew Room

There seems to be a progression that many homebrewers go through, it goes something like this:

  • Start brewing extract on the stove
  • Move to all grain, still boiling on the stove
  • Get a propane burner, start boiling in the garage, patio or porch but still mashing and prepping in the house
  • Wife kicks you out of the house so you're full time outside
  • Tired of this shit, build a brew room/house!
I'm finally on the last stage of this progression after 4-5 years hombrewing and I've started construction on a brew room in the barn. It's come together fairly quickly but I've had to make a few compromises in size along the way based on the structure I was building in.

I have been trying to keep the costs to a reasonable level, this is just a hobby after all, but of course like any building project it's looking like I'll be spending about 20% more than I originally calculated.

Here are some pictures of the project.

This is the building the room is being built in
