Labelling, Packaging, and Time Efficiency
Today's post will be a lot shorter than normal simply because no one will want to read much about what we covered today. We talked about how to label bottles, different types of glue, and we watched videos of a labeling machine at work. We then talked about basics of canning, bottling and kegging and how to determine where bottlenecks in the operation happen. That brought us to a lecture on efficiency in the work place and the importance of having all packaging equipment being as efficient as possible. We ended the day with a discussion of the different types of gasses that are found in the brewery and some of the safety concerns associated with the various types of gas. These are the kinds of days that people don't think about when they say "Brewing school must be really cool."
