2007 - Glass Enclosed Breweries

Subject: Re: Enclosing Brewhouse

Paul, yes! Enclose your brewhouse. It is too dangerous not to do so. Not only do you have a huge liability with customers and your wait staff - both at risk of injury with boiling fluids or chemicals: I have had hose worm-screw clamps fail. Your brewers are also at risk: I worked in an open brewhouse and customers think nothing of standing right there peppering you with questions. Your brewer may be in the middle of an intense procedure, like DE filtering under pressure, and one wrong move can blow his/her head off. I will never work in an exposed brewery again. Please don't do it.

Cheers, Teri
