Beer trunk-line delivery
I finally received the last item of the draft beer system, Micromatics Gen-X 12 product trunk line. I researched this a lot. Essentially I didn’t want 2-3 kegerators behind the bar. They are very wide, can be noisy, more difficult to clean/manage and I couldn’t afford the space. I would still need a cooler at the end of the day anyway so I went with a draft system that would send beer from the cooler to the taps about 35-45 feet away. I wanted a trunkline that was narrow in diameter (1/4″) and very smooth. This allows me to run a long line without having more than a pint of beer in the line at any given time.
Finishing the bathrooms
The final touches, finally. Grouting, sealing, painting and adding the fixtures back in.
New Panini Press
Well, new to us. We acquired a commercial-grade panini press a few weeks ago (thanks John!) and my wife cleaned up and fired it up. Let’s just say, I have been eating good the last week.
We can’t wait to get this to the brewery once the kitchen is done to put it to use. This thing is great.
Weizenbock is ready
The weizenbock that I kegged a week ago has been my go-to beer at the moment. Malty and clovey…perfect for this weather. If any of you are unfamiliar with the style, check out Fathead’s weizenbock…it is truly exceptional.
Next week I plan to
- Move a lot of stuff we don’t need anymore out.
- Possibly lay tile in front of the rest of the bar.
- Finish the back of the bar and get the sink going.
- Pick out flooring for the entryway and the hallway to the bathrooms.
My wife has done a ton of work cleaning the panini press and coming up with and trying recipes. My kids also did a lot of work to finish the bathrooms.
