Brew Garage & Electric Brew Kettle...

I know not everybody sees comments people post here so, in an effort to keep my post rate up :-)  I've included my response to Splobucket from http://www.ataleoftwobrewers.com/ I wrote the following comment about two of my projects right now, the Electric Brew Kettle and the Brew Garage.

[regarding the electric brew kettle] Well, I'll try to get some pictures up. So far it's been surfing homebrew forums, learning about electricity & wiring and sourcing the pieces. Home Depot and Lowes so far, but, I still need a nut, high temp o-ring and GFCI.

[regarding the Brew Garage] It seems the [epoxy] garage floor is all about the prep. Here's what I've done so far.

- clean garage & organize
- life gets in the way
- clean garage & organize
- life gets in the way
- clean garage & organize
- buy carport tent as staging area for garage stuff
- find places to put stuff other than back in the garage
- research prepping the 60 year old floor
- clean with heavy duty cleaner
- test phosphoric acid for etching
- use paint stripper to remove paint spots from previous owner
- clean with heavy duty cleaner including power washing

Next up...

- tear out old crappy workbench from previous owner
- clean with heavy duty cleaner one more time (power wash)
- etch with phosphoric acid
- mix up the batch and apply (takes an hour or two)
