Winner of Brewer for a Day!

-a prize kindly donated by H B Clark's for a charity draw at the Merrie City Beer Festival 2008

At the 2007 Merrie City Beer Festival, Andrew Priestley was cajoled and browbeaten into buying a ticket in a draw to win a day's brewing at one of our local brewers, under the watchful eye of Clark's Head Brewer, Paul Senior.

Here Andy is filling the grist hopper with crushed malt.

Andy gives the wort a good stir with a paddle, possibly to distribute the yeast

The prize allows the winner to bring along a mate. Andy himself realised that the most gruelling job of the day was to be emptying the wet and heavy spent grains from the mash tun, a job which is rarely mechanized in small breweries, and which the head brewer is always glad to delegate. That's why Andy's mate David Pickersgill is doing it!
