The photo gal. is not ready so i though i would post a few pics of my home made bar, finally finished and now finally chilled woo hoo

without the cost of taps, the bar was built under $100, I was lucky to have some of the wood, but just shows howmuch you save doing it yourself!

I am not a tradesman but i have played with cars welders and build that very building. However i learnt it all on the fly..

Its not hard, just need to think logical about it and wamo !

this was the room prior to the bar, it was a shed to start with.

p.s for confidence, i am only 24 yrs young and a electronics tech. So dont hold back give it a go! :super:

The kegs are keeps near the bar in a fridge, i am at work so this is the only photo i have

there is 2 fridges, the one thats hard to see is kegs and frozen liquid for the taps / hops / yeast

the bigger one is for "food" but is full of more hops yeast and heaps of beer glasses stubbies hehe

(i think i have issues)

yes ken they are your taps, handles, drip tray and even one of the bar mats, I always said i would post pics once it was finished :) and its taken so long because i had to build the room after i bought all the goodies :) talk about back to front prioritys hehe

And more than 10.... drinks were down'd at the "bar opening stage one"

next is the taps on temp control (inc the chilled liquid)

stage 3 is under the bar is to be my temp controlled area for the fermentors keeping all beer related things in that one area.

All that is after the new brewery frame and setup

if only i put this much effort into study :)
