New Brewery Set Up

It's an exciting day here at Aran Brew. Last weekend we went up to Ikea in Belfast where we bought the stuff to make new shelves for my brewing gear. It was about 40 pounds all told for the shelves. Needless to say we also stocked up on some lovely english ales and ciders in the supermarket too.

My lovely husband who has a horror of flat pack furniture very kindly suffered the pain and put the shelves together. I gave them a coat of beeswax and today I put them in place and stacked all my brewing gear on them. Here they are.

I think they're great. The brewing gear had been threatening to take over the room since I started making all grain beer. This way everything is all neatly stacked up. Hopefully it'll make brew day easier as I used to spend ages hunting in all the stuff for some vital bit of kit. The add on baskets are handy for keeping chemicals and small bits of kit in. The shelves are adjustable which was a vital feature as brewing stuff is not a standard size. The better bottles even have their own fermentation shelf.

I think some mead brewing may have to be done to celebrate.

Looks like a great set-up, wish I had the space (and talent....) to invest in my brewing like that!
