Meantime Brewing Lauter Tun Install from Meantime Brewing on Vimeo.
Having had a tight vertical squeeze with our hot liquor tank on June 3rd, the following day we opted for a tight horizontal squeeze with the lauter tun.
Everyone was worrying about making sure that the mammoth 4.5 metre diameter brew vessel did not hit the walls, that they forgot that it also shouldn't hit the floor.
Now that Meantime's new brewery in SE10 is starting to take shape we thought it was time that the staff from our old premises at Penhall Road, came for a bit of an advance preview, which took place on Monday 7th June. The new vessels were closely inspected and pronounced very exciting. The Meantime team left greatly fired up and looking eagerly to the day in the next few months when they can move into their new offices next to the shiny new brewhouse.

There was a tight moment at Meantime Brewing's new premises on June 3rd when the largest vessel in the new brewhouse was hoist into position. At 250hl ( 25,000 litres or 42,000 pints) the tank was only two inches clear of the brewery ceiling, so it was touch and go if it would sit on its plinth. It did.

Excitement mounts at Meantime upon receipt of a set of photos of our new brewhouse leaving it's Bavarian birthpace of Chieming for its new Greenwich home. Two lorries and a low-loader set off on May 31st and are due to arrive at Blackwall Lane on Thursday this week. Low-loaders with the larger brewhouse vessels will follow (pictures to follow) and a futher lorry with the nuts and bolts will depart later in the week.
The new brewery floor is finishing it's curing process and the last of the tiles are being laid in order to be ready to receive the new vessels.
More news soon.
