Lots of cleaning

It's Monday; it must be time to clean the draft lines. I also cleaned a bucket full of picnic pumps that had come back with root beer kegs.

I climbed into the kettle and scrubbed it out with acid.

The heat exchanger was due for its monthly cleaning. Just to be different, I unhooked a pipe and ran a couple of hoses in order to run the caustic backwards through the loop. Backflushing should clean more gunk out.

Fermenters #4, #6, #7, and #8 all got cleaned this morning.

Tomorrow: deliver root beer to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
