Yesterday we received our fermentation and brite tanks. It was a long day full of excitement and chest crunching fear (mainly when we tilted up each and EVERY tank). We’ve been so excited for this day to come but truth be told, we were completely unprepared for the mammoth undertaking of removing and placing the tanks by ourselves. Lucky for us, our karma is strong and we were saved by Ryan and his father, Harvey- two master riggers. YAY!
To save room for photos, I’ll spare you a more wordy description of the day. These photos do a pretty good job of telling our story.
With the tanks now in place, and our ABC and TTB applications APPROVED, we move on to running the glycol lines and cleaning the brewhouse before reassembly. Unfortunately, we recently got word that our kettle needs a little TLC. So off it will go on Monday or Tuesday for a little work. We’re hoping it comes back quickly!
