New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

Post by guypettigrew » Wed Jul 25, 2018 6:33 pm

By the end of next week my brewing gear should be moved into a recently dry lined single garage. Plus an insulated cupboard will be built large enough to hold three King Kegs. The cupboard will be fully insulated and cooled by a plate evaporator (I think that's what it's called) like you have at the back of a 'fridge. The compressor will be on the outside of the garage.

Here's some photos of the work so far.

All deleted. having real trouble getting photos on here. It shows them on the preview, then says 'no longer available', with the exception of the one you can see.

I'll keep trying!

This is the last one for today. I'll work on getting more than one photo per post tomorrow.

Yup, should be able to change the air in the garage (5m x 3m x 2m) twice a minute.

This is driving me mad! I put three photos into this post. The preview shows them all. Then I press 'submit' and two of them say 'image no longer available.

So, today's progress photos will have to be in three posts.

Firstly, the grill on the outside of the garage.

And finally for today, the beginning of the beer cupboard.

Thanks for looking.

Are you placing the photos 'inline'? I just tried a test and if you don't add the photos to the actual post (i.e. just leave them as 'floating' attachments, only the first one shows up.

EDIT: Actually, even without placing inline it seems to work. Not sure why it didn't the first time I tried it.

Nope, done it again.

Photos placed inline after selecting from my computer. Big green tick next to them. Preview showed them all there. Submission removed two of them.

Your second 2 attachments don't appear to have been uploaded. Did they definitely finish uploading before you posted?
