Couple of fun developments today!
First, we finally got to peel the shipping plastic from our tanks and brewhouse. They looked kind of like giant stainless steel butterflies coming out of their cocoons. (Thanks to Jim's dad Jay, a former English major, for contributing that lovely simile).
Better yet, we got to boil some water! It's more exciting than it sounds...really. We ran a full one hour boil, and cycled the water through to the whirlpool.
Next up: degreasing the tanks and continuing to get ready for our first test brew.
