Well no not really, but I had to pick a forum to put this story. Yesterday I had the honor and privilege to help with a brew at this place:http://deprael.nl/
Sorry it's in Dutch. It's a micro brewery, with tasting room, food and live music. It's a cool place in that it offers employment opportunity to people that are recovering from, and dealing with psychiatric problems. There are over 100 employees. The head brewer is a psychiatric nurse. (how's that for a job description). Health care pays for part of the occupational therapy, beer sales does the rest. It's a NFP and is holding it's own quite nicely. (My wife thought I would fit right in..... that's a joke, I'm not making light of people with real mental health issues.) Anywho this is the brew setup....
A half a million dollar stainless steel German precision artwork. Whirlpool, plate chiller (the mother of all) and fermentation vessels all down stairs. Grain loft up, you can see the balcony where there's a chute to drop the grains into the BK.
We made 275 gallons of Russian Imperial Stout. (that's a lot of 50 pound bags bags of wet grain to get rid of at the end of the day.....)
I found a lot of inspiration for my "ultimate system" and also a lot of questions about process that I will pose in the appropriate sections of this forum.
