The time has come to break the ice and try to brew the first beer which can be offered to customers. Our production facility is still far from being ready to accommodate that level of brewing. However, we managed to agree on a gypsy brewing in Piešťanský pivovar. We had a recipe prepared for a longer period of time already. Our brewmaster assembled it while tirelessly brewing on our homebrewing brewhouse. Speaking of style the beer belongs to APA group of beers or American Pale Ale.
In oPive (aboutBeer) magazine’s survey we evaluated the year 2016 from brewers perspective. Here is the link to article: Jejenekem Brewery: It is amazing what a community is being established in Slovakia. It is written in Slovak.
The bottom of the door leading to the part of the cellar to be filled up is already concreted. The time has come to fill the rest of the door. We made the formwork and pulled out the mixer. This way we added one of the inherent ingredients to Saturday's village mood. Besides tireless circular saw whirling, urgent rooster screams, and riotous dogs barking it is, of course, tenderly hypnotic mixer rattling. The concrete is already maturing…
After the purchase of our building we were convinced that a building with such a long and diverse history must be hiding a priceless treasure somewhere in its bowels which we will once discover. So far unfortunately we discovered only couple of surprises in the form of critically damaged parts of the building. The third issue in a row which required immediate action was leaky tin roof over building extension. Water entering through holes in the roof considerably damaged the ceiling of the room located directly below this roof.
Since we decided to fill up the part of the cellar that was in disrepair, we had to fill the door leading to that part of the cellar with concrete filling. We started with the bottom part of the door. We will not fill the window next to the door. It will later become part of the riser. In the second part of the cellar, which is usable, we plan to establish a technical room. Pipes from the technical room will pass through this riser up to the production rooms.
