On Setting Up Fermentation Tanks

There were a lot of things we didn’t know when we first started to build Steel & Oak. One of those things was how to erect tanks and put them where you want them. However, we learned fast and don’t want to brag but feel like we’re almost experts at it now.

Today we added a new fermentation tank to the farm. Her name is Blanche, she is the largest of our fleet and can hold 100HL, or 21,141 cans of Royal City Ale depending on how you look at it.

We thought it’d be fun to show a few steps in the process which always ends up being a sketchy yet rewarding experience.

Stay tuned on our Instagram account (Username: steelandoak) for future photos of Blanche in her unwrapped glory.

We also try to do a pretty good job of showing you the action as it happens on our Snapchat account (Username: steelandoak).
