Schlafly Photo of the Day

In order to sample our fermenting beer in an aseptic fasion, we have to bring the heat....

By hitting the sampling port with some flame from a hand-held butane torch after spraying it with ethanol (which is why the blue flame seems to spread so far), we can be assured that the port is free of any airborne contaminants that may have alighted upon it.

Schlafly Photo of the Day

A Spundaparat. Otherwise known as a bunging device. It allows us to capture the CO2 generated in the fermentation process in order to naturally carbonate the beer. It's set to a vent only when the tank reaches a pre-determined pressure.
