The Platform is Up, Fermenters in a Row

With the platform welded together, and fermenters in place, the brewhouse is looking like...a real brewery!  Hopefully just a week's more work and we can begin testing all of the equipment.  *Fingers Crossed*

What a cozy lil' brewhouse we have

The four fermenters stand 17 ft tall and hold 50 barrels (1550 gallons) of beer each, or 6,200 gallons collectively!  The smaller unit on the left is the glycol tank, which holds very cold water.  The water circulates around the fermenters, to keep the beer at a controlled, consistent temperature.

The fermenters are positioned directly left of the brewhouse (above)
