The instructions you are reading right now

 

Tips and Tricks:

a) Keep the milled grains loose inside the mesh bag to extract the most flavor and color

b) Pay careful attention to not let your steeping water exceed 170°F which extracts tannins and stops the enzymes from extracting the sugars from the grain.

c) Make sure that the malt extract does not accumulate and caramelize on the bottom of the kettle. Keep it stirred.

d) Hops can cause malignant hyperthermia when consumed by dogs, with sometimes fatal results. Don’t let Spot eat your hops.

WOW, how long can this take!!!
 

       Been making calls, setting appointments and seemingly rowing my boat in a circle for months now. Trying to find a commercial plumbing contractor that can install two trench drains and three floor sinks. Of course most companies are extremely busy and cannot get us on a schedule. This I understand. We have a company that can cut the concrete as well as handle re-pouring the concrete when the drains are installed and connected. All we are trying to find is someone to set the drains and connect it all together. This of course requires a licensed contractor so they can pull the permit and get the work signed off when completed. We had one bid the other day for 17K. I needed a cold one immediately to keep from fainting. If anyone knows a competent contractor, please send us their contact info ASAP. This is truly the biggest slow down we have dealt with. The City has reviewed and okay'd our drawings and updates, so this is ready to go. As soon as we get the floor re-poured and the concrete has set, we can start assembling the brewhouse and get in the business of brewing craft beer for all to enjoy. 
        Our 42 circuit 200 amp panel is connected and ready to supply all the power we need to get going. Xcel engineers did a study and let us know we have the right of amount of natural gas to run the 300,000 btu boil tank along with twin tankless hot water heaters. Most of the final buildout has bids and talented craftsman waiting to handle to the tasks.
       My wife and I will take a few days off the last week of June to attend the HBC (Home Brew Con) in Providence, RI. We'll fly into Boston a few days ahead and checkout a beautiful historic city, then drive to Providence and enjoy checking out local breweries and the Conference. Looking forward to a possible July Opening. If we can get these drains in and buttoned up, I think it might be possible.


As Always, Cheers and send all your positive CARMA our way!!
