Title: Ladys and Gentleman. They have arrived.

Here they are. All 8 pallets plus one pallet of lids.
This was a first time I got sealed trailer. And it was all for me :)

Then in the afternoon I checked the filler and seamer and seamed first empty can.
I think it should work just fine.

Beer is in the bright tank and we should be filing some cans at the end of the week.
Wish me luck.  ;)

That's a whole lot of cans!

I'm heading up towards Heyward in August.  Will the cans get the same distribution as your growlers?

I'd love to bring back a case.

We usually stop off at the Foster Cheese Haus and grab some growlers on the way home.

Damn that's beautiful !  It's pretty much a linear trip,too.  I'd love every one of those stops.  Had them all but Surly (and they are firmly on the list).

Hmmm. I just started thinking about a vacation. If I just move that line over to Champaign.... Maybe start at Triptych. :D


Congrats Leos. I always pass through Eau Claire on my way up to the family cabin in Minnesota, so I think I will definitely stop by this year and pick some up some of those.

I just visited Leos a couple of weeks ago. Was lots of fun with very tasty beers.

Thank you for stopping by.
It was fun and I talked too much I am sure  ;D
Your beer was also fantastic.
Great  visit.

Now this makes me think.
We used to meet at NHC.
Now we just visit each other place.

I see some resemblance between the monk on the truck and the guy moving the dolly.

Thank you.

I can report back that I had a few fights with filler. I won some fights and filler won some.
Wild goose person is coming first Monday of next month.

I got new batch in the bright tank and I carbonated it to 2.7 volumes (10 psi @ 32F).
I am filling in the walking cooler on one filler only. With 2.7 volumes carbonation it appears to run better.

So far it had been prety frustrating experience.
People like the cans thou so this is a positive side.
