Repairs to the barrels have been completed, and the "fleet" of 12 120-gallon mash tubs have been filled with water to make them swell and tighten. After three tries to get a working steam cleaner -- don't ask, but suffice to say that maybe the 18th-century technique would have been faster! -- Dave and the gang cleaned the barrels and the two stills that we will be using. Next up is moving the mash tubs back into the building, firing up the boiler, and getting the grain ready to mash.
