Day 361

Today, Friday was not only the end of the work week, but also the last day of August and the traditional last day of summer. For me,  it also marked the last day of my summer job.

We have been doing quite a bit of bottling recently, and I arrived expecting to spend my final day at the brewery with a glue gun in my hand. However, a big order of beer had not yet been picked up from the brewery, so the cooler was full of unshipped beer. With no room in the cooler, we couldn’t bottle any more beer today.  So my last day was spent doing small chores and chatting.

An undramatic end to the summer, but also a good lesson in how one problem at the end of the distribution line can affect your bottling schedule, which in turn can have an impact on fermenting and bright tank turnover, which in turn can affect your brewing schedule.

Next up is the Labour Day weekend, and then it’s back to brewmaster school.
