While we're waiting for our HERMS to be rebuilt we have had to employ other methods of controlling the temperature of our mash.
Many will say our mash tun should have been insulated from the start and they are right. I mean aside from making temperature control simpler it also saves energy which in return saves money. Truth be told it was also something we requested when we purchased our equipment but were convinced it was not required. Either way its required now and we have bush mechanic'd it...
We have many plans to make our insulation more aesthetically pleasing and robust, but for the point of this exercise it'll do.
I'm sure many readers of our page are aware just how important temperature regulation is for the mashing stage and what an effect variation can have on your brew time and end product. What really threw us a curve ball was the variance between our probes readings (from the thermo well) and the actual reading from various stages in the brew. In some cases it has been up to 5% variance. A trap for you players...
I guess the long and short of it is everyday our efficiency is going up and our brew times are going down and that can only be a good thing!
Noticed anything different recently? Yea, we didn’t think we’d fool you that easily! We’ve gone and gotten ourselves a new website.
What’s the difference? Well, it’s rather swanky for one! Everything is still pretty much the same behind the makeover, however, one major difference is that we now have a new online shop available for you to use, and it’s live right now!
WE GET ASKED, A LOT... WHAT'S WITH THE LOGO? WELL LET US EXPLAIN...
Anyone who has had a business knows that the logo is very important. In my opinion it needs to be simple, memorable and have some value beyond just being pretty
So back in October last year we told you about the plans we were laying out to move and expand our business into the Old Butter Factory building in Tumut.After trials and tribulations this move unfortunately fell through, and although we were disheartened at this set back we know that these things happen and we wouldn’t have gotten to where we are now without falling down and picking ourselves back up.
