Join with us on our adventure as we build East Alstead's first brewery and what is quite possibly the only off-grid commercial brewery in the United States. We feel that what we brew and how we brew it are equally important. If you would like to help out with this project, contact me at:

Four Windows, Stainless Steel, & Protecto Tape

Today I finished putting up the windows on the south side of the brewery.  Fortunately, these were small windows that I could do by myself.  We now have all four windows installed on that side of the brewery.  I think it looks pretty nice....
This thing is starting to look like a real brewery!

On Sunday, with help from Chris Gauvin, we installed the two big windows on the north side of the brewery.  That was an adventure!  Today I finished sealing the windows with Protecto Tape.  It is good stuff that works.

The Tyvek needs some attention...

The first thing I did today was to pick up the remaining covers for the mash tun and fermentors.  These had been fabricated by Ray Britton at Melanson Company.  He had constructed the first cover, which was spot on. It only made sense to have build the last three.  Once again, Ray's work is perfect.  See the result below...

Another perfect fabrication job by Ray Britton.

So all in all, today was a productive day.  The best part of the day was taking Banana-dog for a two-hour walk in the woods.  We went high up on Smith Hill and were treated to a transcendent view of the New Hampshire hills.  It was a good way to start.
