If You Build It, They Will Clean
Remember when fearless leader Hank used the engineering skills he’d honed in his previous life in order to build our original 12-gallon brewhouse out of scrap material? And remember how, when we outgrew it, he turned that brewhouse into a keg washer?
Well, now we’ve outgrown the keg washer.
The system could only sanitize two containers at a time, and it took about eight minutes to go through one cycle. So Hank is busy fashioning us a new one out of stainless steel that will handle four kegs at once and take only four to five minutes per shot. Perhaps most exciting for our cellarmen? It’s about a foot lower to the ground, meaning they’ll expend less effort when lifting the 40-pound casks into place.
The project should take a couple of months to complete, since Hank is working on it when he’s not busy, you know, co-running a brewery. In the meantime, onwards and upwards…
