Today we had a productive Sunday morning at the new BSBC HQ. We spent the morning cleaning the warehouse internal walls ready for painting which will spruce it up nicely.
Ahead this week we look forward to a mountain of paperwork to do. We have Excise Application, SA Water Trade Waste, Strata Development Application and Manufacturers Design Report verifications all to be done.
It never ends but we love it.
We gathered some great insights into our immediate future ahead today listening to Yeastie Boys and 8 Wired brewers at The Wheaty…….It all adds more fuel to the tank for the months ahead…..As always with this place met some great people who love the scene a much as we do.
We had a great night tonight on Day 3 of Good Beer Wheaty. Our session on stage ended up running overtime which was a healthy sign. After the session we got some great feedback from the crowd in attendance. There really is some great love out there for more local craft beer action in SA.
Come and say hello this Saturday at the Wheaty. Find out what has gone well and what hasn’t so far with our brewery plans. Maybe join us for a #beer after!
Our first warehouse: Its in our current location but was too small to house our commercial brewery. Many mornings were spent here working on recipes and talking through our plans. We also met some great people who worked in the surrounding premises, including our great friend and new landlord, Len from LeGrande Kitchens
Our baby: The Sabco brewmagic. Imported from the US and our first ‘real’ brewery. Used then and still now to hone our ideas and will continue to be used to trial new recipes and ideas.
The pit: The original Big Shed had a mechanics pit that maintained a constant temp of about 20 degrees. This was perfect for our fermenters.
The original Big Shed: A massive Ag shed out in the Barossa Valley. It was here our dreams of becoming craft brewers were first cracked, mashed and fermented.
The original Big Shed from the outside. At 60×40 It had plenty of room for brewing equipment, cars and scaletrix. #mancaveextreme
