It'll be a one BBL (30 gallon) system. Dan and I both work full time so we hope to brew between 2-3 times per week starting out

Excellent!  From Stout tanks?  I'm brewing mostly 140L batches and occasionally 160L ones on some of the smaller beers.  You'll no doubt have the same issue that I have in that you're just not able to produce beer fast enough!   ;D

Chris here! It was great to meet with Jake and Dan and get a sneak peek at the brewery location (plus try some test batches :) ).  Just a note, the ACBB is definitely not "my" blog, it is written as much (and many weeks more!) by Shawn, a fellow homebrewer and beer lover. He also writes a beer blog at http://meekbrewingco.blogspot.ca/, and has some great clone recipes straight from the brewers (he has a while series of Maine Beer Co clones).

So, now that John, and Jake and Dan have opened/are opening very soon, who's next? :)


Ps. You may want to fix the registration/post manual capcha, we've moved on from only using barley as a malt in beer. I'd be surprised if you found any in most macro brews. Maybe "malt" or "grain". :)

Thanks Chris!

I've been following Shawn's personal blog (http://meekbrewingco.blogspot.ca/) for a while and can say it's got a ton of great info and recipes.

Sorry, I meant the Atlantic Beer Blog written by Chris and Shawn :cheers:

Great to have you both on here!

Congrats guys!   :cheers:

Late to the party, but following progress on FB and Twitter.   Hope in the proud tradition of the other NB craft brewers, that some of your product will make it down to Ducky's in Sackville.

Cheers!

Sounds like Wes at (or around) The Taproom is opening a 10Bbl sometime in the near future as well.

From the AC Blog...Good stuff guys. Awesome.

TrailWay has brewed a new beer, and it's their first collaboration! Staying true to their roots, they formulated a recipe with two homebrewers from the New Brunswick Craft Brewers Association, Adam Jones and Roger Ringuette. The beer, Sensible Nonsense, is a DIPA hopped with Apollo, Magnum, Orbit, Centennial, and Mosaic, to approximately 95 IBUs. Supported by some malty sweetness thanks to some Vienna and CaraRed malt in the mash, expect this hoppy beer to exhibit lots of fruity, piney, and dank notes. It should come in around 7.5% ABV; look for it to hit taps around Fredericton within the next couple of weeks. They're also planning on experimenting with some casks of this beer, so stay tuned for that (and remember, their inaugural cask release at the King Street Ale House starts tonight at 6 pm!).
