Last Sunday was the first official brew day at Lucid Brewing. Until the equipment comes, we will be brewing on our pilot systems—only 20-25 gallons per batch vs. 500 gallons on the real system. We’re still homebrewring, but the pilot systems should help us get to know the water and play with some recipes.
As with any new endeavor, there were several things that made us scratch our heads. First, the water source is 100 ft away from gas line and 150 ft away from the drain. This presents somewhat of a challenge….how do we get water and gas to the brewhouse and drain water without making a mess of the place? Really long hoses of course!
