Day 312

In any brewery, problem-solving skills and a familiarity with basic tools are paramount, but perhaps even more so at a small brewery. Rather than purchasing something to solve a one-time problem, one usually tries to put something together from parts that are lying around the brewery.

Several times this week, we used a variety of tools to scavenge pieces from various bits of unused apparatus, then bodged them into a new configuration in order to facilitate some odd “we’ve never done that before” cleaning/transferring/carbonation needs that crop up from time to time.

If you plan to work at a brewery but don’t know your Phillips from your Robertson, find some way to get up to speed on using tools. Hobbies are a good start. Home ownership is the master class.
