Now Serving Draught Beer by Jeremy

Is it draught or draft? Who knows.

And who cares! All the finishing touches are in place and the Gowanus Brewery kegerator is finally done and topped off with Barry’s Nut Brown Ale, just in time for Sunday’s big game.

From my perspective, installing the kegerator hardware and putting it all to use was easy. Barry and I did a minimal amount of work to the mini-fridge, punching only two last-minute holes for the tower and carbon dioxide tank earlier in the week. It took Barry some time to assemble the hose fittings and gauges, which you really need to look at and understand before using. When it came time to fill the keg, there was, I assume since I wasn’t there to see, nothing to it. Barry filled it up, hooked up the carbon dioxide, and shook the keg. He tried some right afterwards and there was actually already some carbo.

For our part, my girlfriend and I are putting together the hardware for all-wheat mashing. Yesterday, I finally order the bazooka tube to go with our big, stainless steel kettle, but that’s the last piece of hardware we need to put all that stuff to use. In the next month or so we’ll be back up to full production and back on track to meet our 2008 resolutions.
