Beer Cellar

Got a neat little app for the iPhone called 360 Panorama so I took a picture of my beer cellar today while reorganizing. Check it out on the link below. You can zoom in and out and pan around.

Neat!

Looks like a pretty nice selection. I see lots of Founders…man, that is good beer all around.

Pretty cool!
Looks nice.

Nice selection of beer and great use of what is often wasted space! I have a similar space under my stairs…but mine is not being used nearly as creatively!

Damn my pellot stove! I so badly want to turn a portion of my cellar into a brew room, but the pellot stove makes my basement spike to about 75 degrees. Nice setup, btw, what is that your using for your primary?

The primaries are Curtec 15 gallon wide mouth kegs. I have 4 of them. More inforation from my wesite pasted here:

1/30/2011 Note About the Big Red and White Fermenters

The fermenters are made in Holland by a company called Curtec http://www.curtec.com . They are called 7055 wide mouth kegs and have a capacity of 55 liters or about 14.5 gallons. They have an o-ring seal in the screw on lid and function very well for 10-12 gallon fermentations. I drilled through the lid a ½” hole and installed a rubber grommet so it will accept a 3-piece airlock. I got my containers from a guy in Ohio who uses them (or the product inside of them) in his business. He uses the baking soda product and then sells the containers for about $45 each (shipping included). His name is Doug and his email is dbgrammllc@aol.com if you want to see if he has any available.

In case he does not have any more, you can also get them from the following website for around $40 plus shipping http://www.generalcontainer.com/product.aspx?pid=20

It is the N37055 (5th item). These are very sturdy, easy to clean and pretty easy to transport, even when full. I have had mine for 3-4 years now and they work great for my 20 gallon batch sizes using 2 per batch.

The advantages of them vs plstic buckets of carboys is that I only need two per batch instead of 4 buckets. Other than that, they are comparable. Very easy to clean out and inspect for cleanliness. They are a bit heavy when filled but at 6’5" and 300+ lbs, I have no problem carrying them around.
