I feel like I should get this thread moved =P Not many commenting was kinda hoping to get some conversation going

I had a 75minute IPA. Too hot and sticky sweet, usual Dogfish. I used to love em, but not so much these days.

My brewery should have some tours from 5:30 to 8pm this Friday. No samples yet, just a local downtown event called First Friday.

We're finalizing numbers on our brewhouse, current estimated lead time is 2 months. We could be open by early summer, but knowing the nature of brewing, it could take a lil longer.

Yesterday night I was there.

I picked up a carboy Didn't have enough ferment space for the 20gal batch today. Ordered a sack of unmalted wheat and it wasn't even there =( No wits for a bit.

Gonna be a busy brew day. Kegging 15gal, brewing 20, cleaning and polishing the big boy tank

Man I thought that was you but I wasn't sure, me and a buddy of mine were right there behind you while you were checking out. If I'd have known I would have said hi!

Didn't make the connection at the time, but did as soon as you asked me lol. As I'm only 22, my age tends to catch people off guard.

Ugh calibrating sight glasses is the most boring thing ever. I've got these two 26gal morebeer kettles I've slowly been calibrating for the pilot system. So not looking forward to calibrating the sight tube on the brite (and I am going to build a similar sight tube for the fermenters) I'm a stickler about volumes.

We've happened upon 8 or so glycol jacketed wine fermenters for a good price. If we pick them up expect MANY sour beers, lagers, and high gravity brews in our lineup!

We are now considering scaling up to a 30bbl brewhouse.

Epiphany of the week: Brite Tanks can be used as CLT's.

Exciting news about the craft brewers conference: Head Brewer at Russian River is giving a lecture on dry hopping and there is a lecture on advanced sour brewing. I'll post my notes up when I get them, as I assume the info should be pretty cutting edge.

Finally finished cleaning all the big boy tank fittings
Floor grates are in. They look pretty darn snazzy. One of our tanks blowoff assemblies is too close to a roofduct. >_<

Trying to get big C camlocks off of brewhardware for the pilot, but I keep missing the days he stocks them I can't go back to skinny camlocks!
