Melwood Beer Company back to business as usual!

Well its been a busy old few weeks at The  Melwood Beer Company!!

The plumbing work that Stan has been doing is now complete and we have expanded into our new office under the Arch at Stanley Grange so we have more room in the brew house at last!

So it WAS back to business as usual on Sunday when Stan (with Mr & Mrs Melwoodbeer, &  Young John assisting) brewed his inaugural brew ‘Derby Pale’.

It was like we were re-learning to use our kit because we no longer use flexible pipes to pump liquor and wort round the system.  It’s now a process of turning taps on and off and the various pumps switching on and off as needed in order to brew our beer

So it went like clockwork! Stan really has done a fantastic job and  I hope Mr & Mrs Melwoodbeer can remember which taps to open and when!  We let Stan be in charge as this is his first brew with Melwood and he’s teaching us good habits already.  Stan has a place for everything and everything has it’s place so hopefully we can adopt this mantra and make sure we’re not searching round for equipment because we don’t know where we’ve put it!!

We were finished by 2.30pm – just enough time to do the Mother’s Day visit and watch the match.  Happy Days!
