Shop Floor Update.

This week we've been working on some 5 BBL fermenters, 60 BBL fermenters and a 7 BBL kettle. The kettle is complete, and the fermenters are about halfway done. Check out these photos:   


We finished building these 10 BBL fermenters for Oddwood Ales.  The customer had a height restriction for the tanks, so we designed them to be shorter and therefore bigger around.  All of tanks are custom built, so we can meet size restrictions, tank requirements, and any design needs of our customers.
