Equipment!

We bought some actual brewing equipment!

Lately it seems that all we buy is 2x4s and sheetrock and "pex" which the plummer tells me is what they call pipe these days. Well no more! We've gone and actually acquired the equipment we'll need to brew beer with. Not all of it mind you, we still need a proper plate chiller, hoses, clamps and various odds and ends, but we got the good stuff in today.

First up is our 1.5bbl brew house from Stout Tanks and Kettles down in Portland. Shiny! Thats the boil kettle there on the left and the mash tun on the right. We'll be using our old Blichmann home brew kettles for a Hot Liquor Tank and Hop Back.

Next is the kegs. We got 16 half barrel kegs from Off The Rails brewing down in Forest Grove, OR. Picking up 2 bits of gear in the same run managed to save us a lot in shipping. The kegs are actually Washington state natives, having formerly been employed by the defunct Orchard Street Brewing up in Bellingham. Populuxe is repatriating long lost Washington State kegs!

In other news, we're going to be grinding the floors this weekend, then pressure washing all of the interior walls. After that it's insulation and more sheetrock. Then we can call for another inspection.

Oh you are going to delight at the thrill of sipping a cold Populuxe beer while flipping through our binder of passed inspections from the city. Can there be a more sublime way to spend the afternoon? I submit to you there is not!
