With the federal forms having been submitted, finishing up the brewery has been the focus. This week racks were the order of the day. Mash tun racks and fermenter racks to be exact. On Saturday morning we picked up the mash tun rack from the welder. Perley did an excellent job. The rack is very sturdy and more than adequate to the task of holding the mash tun. All it needs is a couple coats of paint and it will be ready to go.

The next task was building the rack for the fermenters. Since we are still not sure exactly how we want to configure the fermenters, I only made the rack large enough to hold two fermenters. That way we can work out exactly how we want to set things up then build a rack that runs the whole width of the cellar.
