An Early Birthday Present to Myself

…and Jamie and Rob.

YES! And it’s just that! Look at these bad boys… 

Aren’t they beautiful? Direct from SABCO Industries, these little gems arrived last week. And consequently we have plunged ourselves further into this financial black hole of brewing. I believe the adage goes, “Give a man a beer, waste a day. Teach a man to brew, waste a lifetime…” With that said, I believe we’re well on our way to reaching that goal.

As far as function, these will greatly improve the ease and efficiency with which we ferment. No more carboys, no more transferring, easier yeast harvesting, no more airlock explosions causing crusty, brownish yeast shrapnel on the ceiling.

To say the least I’m ecstatic, and can’t wait to see awesome results from the new equipment. Come by the house/brewery Sunday and get your picture taken with them!

  1. There’s still some transferring, right? It’s just a lot easier now? As a Brew Dudes expatriate/avid spectator, I’d like to know.

  2. There shouldn’t be any transferring to a secondary. Just rack of the yeasties and you’re good for round two. We did transfer to a cornie keg for carbonation. There is no siphoning involved anymore though, just add some Co2 to the fermenter and everything flows right on out.
