Sparkling Portland Tap Water now on bar. Carbonation refilling is work, since we bike the 20 pound alloy tank to the Welding Supply store on Martin Luther King. This has put us mythically closer to our goal of having milk on tap as well, with the one thing holding us back being the purchase of an argon tank. We are proud to serve tap water. Each morning we run the water for some time, getting fresh water into the system. The same goes for the water that is served on bar. We filter our water with a loose fibre filter only to remove chunks of iron and sediment, same with espresso machine water.

The water we wash with is unfiltered. The water we sanitize our dishes with is mixed with quatro- ammonium, which has a PH of 7, unlike bleach, which is very basic. The neutral PH does not dry out ones hands. Quatro-ammonium is cool because it kills a lot of things, and when it dries leaves no residue (which is why our coffee cups and glasses are “beer clean”)

the water we do our pourover coffee with is 198.6F +/-.4F leading to a quicker desired brew time. (more on this later).

since its pouring rain, and we are low on photos, we thought we would talk about water.
Right this second BT Livermore has a fantastic artshow up at Courier’s bar. Friend and Illustrator BT is a great person to dream about signage with. Please take a look around next time on bar at the trunk show.
