Some serious brewing kit: left to right: hot liquor tank fermentation vessel  no.1 the baby, the magnificent copper, and FVs 4, 5 and 6 with the huge cold liquor tank behind.

Shiny domes, and also the conditioning tanks. This temperature-controlled hall used to house a canal boat, but now it's Ossett beers.

When a brewery is big enough to justify a steam generator it has truly arrived!

The majority of Ossett's casks are stainless steel, but here at the triple cask washer is a batch of plastic ones. The cask exteriors are pre-cleaned in the yard.

These tanks, still in their protective film were to be used to hold beer awaiting bottling.
