Look for these two “new” delivery vans on the road. The newer one is on the road now, the ’58 Apache needs paint – should be rolling by spring.

We used hand-picked wild Peppermint for our latest stout. Special thanks to Roots Down Organic Farm in Gananoque for the mint!

We decided to hand make our tap handles from Ash trees felled here on the farm. Thanks to Ironclad Graphics in Kingston for the printing.

We completed our first test brew this past Monday, April 7! Overall things went smoothly, all equipment operated as we expected. Quite a few equipment modifications are now required before we try again with a second brew.

INSTEAD OF BUILDING A TYPICAL COLD STORAGE FACILITY, WE DECIDED TO BUILD AN UNDERGROUND COLD CELLAR USING THE CONSTANT TEMPERATURE OF THE GROUND TO NATURALLY AGE OUR BEER. WE BLASTED 12 FEET INTO THE LIMESTONE BEDROCK AND POURED A CONCRETE FLOOR TO STAY ABOVE THE GROUND WATER LEVEL. A LOCAL CONTRACTOR SPRAYED CONCRETE ON THE WALLS TO SECURE THE STONE. WE THEN ERECTED A STEEL FRAME AND INSTALLED PRECAST CONCRETE PANELS AT GROUND LEVEL. IN THE SPRING WE PLAN TO INSULATE AND SEAL THE TOP, AND FABRICATE AN INSULATED WALL FOR THE SOUTH FACE.
