You read it here first.
Barring any last-minute farces we are expecting to brew our first production beer, suitably named "Statement of Intent", on Tuesday.
We've now got the final parts we need to be able to circumvent the loss of our main wort pump (until it's back in a week or two) and so it looks like it's all systems go next week when we'll brew either two or three beers depending how the first one goes; expect to see "Spanish Main" and "Mosaic" following the first brew into FVs 1,2 and 4.
Monday sees us helping friends create a batch of homebrew for a wedding as well as the final preparations for brewday so, if that all goes well and everything checks out, we'll be mashing in early on Tuesday.
