We’ve been working, I swear! That’s actually why this blog, our facebook and our deliveries have been slower paced recently. A brief catch up on our progress and then onto the photos.

Our fermentation and brite tank glycol line is up and ready for the chiller to arrive, Once the unit is in place, we can run the brewhouse lines. Though we were indeed able to put together the CoolFit glycol system (thus far) without much help; it was most definitely not the “plug and play” or “easy to install” system that we were lead to believe. All in all, we’re happy but it took a bit longer than anticipated.

Our fermentation tanks and brite tanks are back in line and bolted and welded down. We just need to bend the bolts and trim them down to the nut for asthetic reasons…then done!

Our “Warrior” kettle has returned with a new stainless steel panel and door for easy repairs. The brewhouse has been reassembled and we’re now considering how to hard plumb it. Copper or Pex?

Our cold storage will be broken down and reassembled in the new facility on Thursday! That’s pretty exciting. We’ll be moving our inventory to Torrance, so no more long drives to Santa Ana to retrieve kegs for delivery. Both Porter and I are cheering!

Check out some of our progress!
