Hefeweizen, and a tour

Today's Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen brew went pretty well, with Tom's help. The cold liquor pump kept crapping out during knockout, possibly due to ice in the tank, but we got it done in the end.

The brew was interrupted by what was probably my Worst Tour Ever. More than 30 senior citizens came to Dusters for lunch, and they asked for a tour afterwards. "Afterwards" happened to be right in the middle of the boil, which wouldn't have been a bad thing in itself, except a third of these people weren't entirely sure where they were, and it was like herding cats trying to get them all upstairs. Plus there's really only room for fifteen people on the tour. Fortunately Tom was there to keep on top of the brew while I was juggling the oldies.

There are tour groups scheduled for tomorrow and Thursday, too, but I don't know if they're from the same source.

Tomorrow: clean the draft lines, clean kegs, transfer some root beer, acid-wash the kettle and mash tun.
