And well you might ask! This process has been much longer than we had either hoped, or even dreaded, but we are making progress and are hopeful that Waterford Brewday Number One is not far off.
We’ve been hard at work over the last couple of months pulling all the threads together that are necessary to start brewing at the Waterford brewery. As I type, the electrician is plugging away downstairs (pardon the pun) now that we have located that elusive third phase into the building, and our sexy new distribution board will be live any day now. The plumber will be back later this week to commission the gas burner for the kettle, and we’re hoping to knock out most of the refrigeration work next week.
Parallel to this we’re making savagely long lists of things we think we’ll need to buy, trying to figure out where we’re going to get it all from, and wondering how we’re going to be able to afford it all. Hurrah! We are, of course, continuing to brew at White Gypsy in the meantime, and deliver beer to our customers, although we are pretty much at capacity now and won’t be able to take on any new customers until we have moved production to Waterford – a good incentive to move things along as quickly as possible.
I am ever hopeful that the next blogpost will be about our inaugural brewday!
