Jack’s Houston Update – Day Three

Day three begins with us getting our U-Haul truck we’ll be driving back and packing it with all sorts of cool new (to us) toys. Control panels, piping, augers, motors, pumps and some stuff I really haven’t even decided what to call will be packed away for the trip north. By the end of today all our big tanks will be cut away and staged for the Crane masters to load up.

Last night we got a fabulous four-star tour of the new Saint Arnold brewery including a rooftop view of the Houston skyline. It is a beautiful, old concrete building they have thoughtfully converted into giant beer making machine. The brewer showed us how he can monitor and control nearly every aspect with his phone. Yes Spencer, there’s an app for that.
