We have had amazing help from a wide range of people to get the space ready (including Roger Milner et al; Steve Bradley et al; and Erin's family), but we saved the most tedious and smelly jobs for ourselves. We have spent the last week scraping, sanding and painting. Unfortunately these are hard paint applications, like the steel beam, that call for stinky paint. We are protecting ourselves and excited to move out of this phase to the more flavorful beer brewing and drinking phase of the project - it can't come too soon. Oh, and we got our kegs this week!!
