Building Fisherrow Brewery:

Wednesday October 13th 1999

A fairly hectic day. Iain and David spent most of it on the M8 between here and Glasgow, fetching the cellar tanks. They've been bought from a certain well-known lager manufacturer and will be put to a much better use here, doubling as fermenting vessels and racking tanks. The tank with two compartments is part of the cask-cleaning system; the long pipe is the firing tube - the burner for the copper is basically a flamethrower which throws its flame along this tube to heat the wort. The second insulated white tank will be the hot liqour tank - it's in much worse nick than the one we're using as a copper but, again, the stainless steel inside is sound. The painting is nearly finished.
