Is this thing on? Hello?
Yeah, I know. I’ve been very absent from this blog. I have not been writing on a consistent schedule (so much for goals). However, I have been writing a lot. I’ve been writing a business plan. Then rewriting the business plan. Over and over again.
The result of that business plan is a brewery coming to Newark, OH. My wife and I are opening Trek Brewing Company. We’ve decided to follow the dream that many homebrewers have at some point while they are watching their fermenter bubble. Trek will be a brewery and taproom with a 15BBL brewhouse.
Starting a brewery keeps you busy, especially when you are still working your day job. Currently, we are doing demo in the kitchen of the former restaurant that will become the brewery. Construction will start soon to prepare the space to receive the 15BBL brewhouse and let us start cranking out some delicious beer. We are sourcing suppliers, running an Indiegogo campaign (shameless plug), developing more recipes, and continuing to learn everything that goes into running a business.
So why am I writing here again with all this happening?
I’ve seen while away that people are still getting use out of some of my posts. My current electric brewery system is getting an upgrade to 1BBL. I have some upgrades for that to share. I have some upgraded electrical to do and I’ll be playing with a glycol setup for the future 1BBL fermenters. I have some other projects in mind that will make their way onto the pages here, as well.
For now, back to the demo!
