I hope you are having a good summer. The summer started a bit on the rough side for me with a nasty bout of malaria. Slowed me down for a little while, but I am mostly back to normal now. The show is still moving on. Our brewing tanks came in from Stout Tanks in Portland Oregon. They look beautiful and are of high quality, definitely worth the six month wait. We scored a great deal on new kegs. Another brewery had ordered some kegs, had their name stamped in them, and then decided not to buy them so we got a bit of a discount on them. The manufacturer even tack welded a little plate over the name for us.
The Historical Society (the managers of our state owned building) approved our design at their meeting in Flagstaff last Friday.I was told that they are in the process of getting the lease drawn up. Once that is done we can really kick it into high gear.
Cody and I have been brewing lately: tweaking recipes using different yeast strains, experimenting with different hop varieties, etc. We hope to have a tasting party with the fruits of our labor in the next month to six weeks. If you have any style requests let us know and we will try and do it.
Have a great weekend,
