As we close out 2016, it is a time for list making. We are not talking about a list of resolutions for 2017 (although, we could suggest some resolutions for a few Council Members, another post, perhaps?). We are talking about the Ins and Outs for our own Fred Co.
One thought on “Our Year in Review – 2016 version”
My brother who is a renowned water quality expert told me that when Flying dog brewery starts producing beer
in Frederick that it takes 4 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of beer, and produces 2 gallons of waste water.
He was hired by the 9th largest craft brewer in the US in California to oversee their water quality. He said that this is
what an efficient brewer takes to make beer. Most less than efficient brewers use 5-7 gallons of water to produce a
gallon of beer. I hope Frederick knows that a million gallons of water produces a1/4 million gallons of beer, and 1/2 million gallons that will need to be treated.. There are 46 gallons of beer in a barrel of beer. During the recent legislative delegation meeting, Flying dog ask to increase the limit on their production to 5 million gallons. This means it will need 20 million gallons of water to produce, and if they are efficient, they will generate 10 million gallons of wastewater. I hope Frederick has the capacity to treat the amount of wastewater that they are going to generate,
and the fresh water to supply Flying Dog brewery!
