One step forwards three steps back...

This week saw our three-phase electrics pack up rendering Thursday's brew impossible as we had no hot water to brew with! Annoying as this was, it allowed us to get various other things done around the place to the point where "Project CLT" is now moving along apace with the cooling unit for FV4 now in it's new home, almost cabled up, connected to the FV's cooling coil and the IBC in-place ready to become our cold liquor tank!

Hopefully the problems with the electrics seem to be (we've an electrician coming Monday) simply a blown fuse protecting the contactors, although we'd like to get it all checked over anyhow just in case there's owt else obvious we can have fixed...

Obviously, not being able to brew has set us back beer-wise, so we're now brewing "Who's been sleeping in my Brain?" next Wednesday and a collaboration with the "Space Cadet" on Thursday (he's a prospective brewer who's worked at various West country breweries) which only contains hops named after gods, owing to which it has the stunningly obvious but very good name of "God Complex"... 

On the plus side, however, our new Espresso machine arrived.... !
