Looks like the lauter tun of the new Lagunitas Brewing 250bbl brew system was damaged on-board the delivery ship in the Caribbean…sequential details courtesy of their Twitter Account:
Seems that our new 250bbll brewhse, hit a storm on the way into the eastern Carribe en route to Panama met HIGH seas, broached, and...
as the ship rolled thru almost 40 degrees a crane came loose from its chains and this (see photo above) happened
...and our 30' diameter lauter tun became a little mishapen.... a little... OMG... they're already building another one... jeeze
... just learned the tank is a total lo$$. Meanwhile two 40' tall 750bbl fermenters just moored in Stockton CA last night. Lotsa work to do!
I just looked in my checkbook and good news: I still have checks left...!
