What Is It?

What is it?

Okay, it is given – these are the stainless steel tanks. So maybe the better question will be: what’s inside?

I’m traveling, and might not have time for a proper post. And it is a long weekend in the USA, so let’s have some fun, shall we?

Here is a picture – and yes, I want you to guess what is inside of those tanks:

I will give you two hints:

  1. There is alcohol inside
  2. I’m in France

The answer is coming on Wednesday.

Have fun, good luck, and enjoy your weekend. Cheers!

    No chilling jacket leaves out booze. Must be perfume.

      Thanks for playing. What chilling jackets? The stainless steel tank is a stainless steel tank… The answer is coming.

        Most fermentation tanks have the “dimpled” look. That’s the “jacket” or a second layer over the actual tank creating a cavity for the cooling liquid to circulate and maintain the correct temperature. There are also additional thin coolant pipes visible. Also, no clean out port at the bottom. I could be wrong, but these don’t look like fermentation tanks to me.

          I’m not a specialist in stainless steel tank constructions. Cooling or not, but these tanks are maintaining constant temperature – it is one of the features. It is not just storage.

          Not claiming I am 100% certain, just going by what I see in the picture 🙂

    We’re in Braga Portugal now and the Douro Valley in another week. Vinho.

      I guess you suggesting that there is wine inside, which makes perfect sense. Do you think it is red or white?
