|So long, suckers!|
By Steve Siciliano
While we are proud of the fact that we carry over seventy grains in bulk for our homebrew customers, we are decidedly not proud of the way they have been merchandised. When the grain bins are full they are difficult to move and those customers (and staff) who are shorter than six feet have a hard time muscling them down from the upper tier of shelves. After mulling over this problem for awhile I think we've finally come up with a solution—the Vittles Vault Stackable 60. (Click here to see a picture.)
These airtight, food-grade containers can hold up to sixty pounds of grain. We will use them to merchandise the specialty and flaked malts and will stack them only two high so there will be no more overhead reaching and scooping. We will also be placing our base malt containers on casters so they can be easily moved to the weigh station.
We hope to have these changes in effect by mid-February.
