Bottling soon, and with a new twist...

No, not twist off caps. Don't want to jinx it just yet, but big plans are in the works. The OLCC just gave us the green light for our secret project, a 'back to the future' take on bottling. Our homebrewing friend just got laid off of his job as a union pipefitter. The label submission to the feds is still waiting approval. Availability of sufficient quantity of bottles has been secured. First batch to be destined for glass instead of steel is planned, yeast prop will start on Monday for a Friday brew day. Four retailers have already agreed to carry the product in the method required, and so far no one has said 'no.'

Hint: Did you know that when you recycle a glass bottle, that the melting and reforming of that bottle still takes 70% of the energy as if it were made from new raw materials?
