Loads done today, including, but not limited, to....
We have 1.25.tons of malt
Our "spot" hop stash is sorted
The copper sight glass is marked up to 3000 litres
Our new gas burners are here!!!
The CO2 installation is complete with all CTs having a supply.
Our sparge arm has been cleaned, refurbished and tested
Almost everything that moves (and stuff that doesn't) has been labelled up
The FVs have been cleaned on the outside (inside tomorrow)
We have lots of new stainless bits and bobs to play with
And some other stuff I've forgotten already! We're hoping to brew this week for sure if the gas burner installation and testing goes to plan, you'll be almost the first to know!

This week is a big week for us.
Theoretically we may be brewing by the end of of the week with a fair wind and good luck, we really hope that's the case!
Tomorrow we should have our new gas burners installed and therefore, once that's done and we have our malt (also tomorrow) we can brew some beer...
We're also having our CO2 installed tomorrow so we can blanket pressure the conditioning tanks and also having a few bits made for us by our mates at AJP stainless of Hereford too!
Updates as it happens on the Facebook page and Twitter and less frequently on here!

We've been beavering away at Hopcraft towers today brewing up two new testbrews. One is a 4.2%ish pale & hoppy little number called "Auf Wiedersehen Boyos" with Summit, Cascade and Mosaic hops; all very nice, but the other is a little bit more interesting....
