Starting the Boiler

We're starting up the boiler for the first time today.

It has sat silent for so long in the corner of the distillery, it was surprising and delightful to hear it roar to life for the first time. It has its own set of hissing and clicking sounds as steam pushes through the pipes.

We found every leaking or open valve...and had several water spills. So I was Mr. Mop & Squeegee today. 

This feels like the distillery is finally getting blood in its veins and coming to life.

Very nice.
