In the last month and a half we have been unable to access our internet for a total of two and a half weeks. In the modern world, that is a lifetime. Today, the 'net came back up after a week off and let us hope it keeps going for a while.With no internet one has a hard time researching purchases and filling out federal and state forms. These last two are critical for us at this point. Not having internet access made me realize two things: How important it is to modern American life and how much time it wastes.
|So why is it that the Italians are so good at cars, bikes, and bottlers?|
Now to the good news. We have finally received our bottler! It is a stainless steel Italian beauty that is completely mechanical. It takes a bit of charm to get it going, but once it is up and running it is a dream and will be a big contributor to the function of our brewery.
In other news, today I picked up the parts for the chimney. We had contracted this job but both contractors were unable to complete the job. So now it is a do-it-yourself proposition. My brother-in-law, Eric Gauvin, has agreed to come up and help out. Any others who are available to help out are welcome. This Saturday we may have a new chimney to show off!
Dear Reader, I shall keep you posted...
