I brewed back-to-back 10 gallon batches last Tuesday and here's a shot of the carboys as I was cleaning up. I didn't end up using the fermentation chambers this time since it's pretty cool in the basement. It was a long day that started around 9:30 and finished the last bit of cleaning around 6pm but it was actually very relaxing. Everything went perfectly smooth, I think one of the best days I've had with the efficiency for both beers above 85%.
The first was our house IPA, brewed with cascade and centennial hops and it will get more of both in the dry hop. The second beer was an amber ale brewed entirely with nugget hops.
Why do you need a winch to hoist the bag after the mash is complete? Well, you don't NEED one, but it certainly helps!
I was asked to post a few pics of the winch I use and thought a short video would be better instead. It will set you back around $40 including two pulleys.
600lb Trailer Winch w/ Steel Cable = $24.98 (shipped)
2 x Pulley = $15.94
