The necessary ingredients have been ordered for this recipe swap we are planning.

It looks like we will miss Christmas and will head for an early January release instead. Things have moved also in terms of how we will dispense our beer with the arrival of our first pallet of 30 litre kegs, our brewing needs to increase in order to get more out there.

Now we will be keging, casking and bottling all done manually so not quite sure how all that will pan out.

Brendan is making us a keg/cask washer of sorts something not too expensive, I seem to be doing a lot of spending of money we don’t have, lots of mental fabrication of money going on!!

Hopefully I can manage to stay ahead of the posse in this regard.

The week culminated in a delicious few beers in Kennedy’s Bar, Dingle. A couple of which were ours!

I was also surprised by a pumpkin beer from Trouble Brewing, not usually drawn to flavoured beers, I was in need of a warm up as the evening was rather damp and particularly cold, so the cinnamon was just the job hitting the spot!

And on reading their blurb on the back, it was pleasantly surprising to read that they grow and roast their own pumpkins!! Who’d have thought!! 🙂

    Hi Roisin,
    If you are anywhere in our vicinity do call in, perhaps we could offer something casual/temporary.

    I just finished the IBD GBC course hoping to sit the exam in May and would very much like to acquire some hands-on in a micro-brewery. Tim O’Rourke had suggested your brewery as an ideal scenario. I have wine making experience and laboratoy experience and know well the labour intensive cleaning and sterility work needed.

    Please let me know if you are taking on help casual/p/t or full-time in the near future.
