We'll have four 310 gallon (10 bbls) barrels (technical term is foeder) when we open and plan to acquire 4 more per quarter for the first year.Did you mean 31 gallon barrels?
Well just going by water that would weigh 2,500 pounds give or take if it was full. So as much as a real small car, or 4 motorcycles at once. You really want that in your house in one spot?
Anyone ever seen the HP calculators that had a printer attached and you put little cards in it to load the programs. Those were incredibly popular for a while in my industry. Ever so often I still see one on a bookshelf in the corner somewhere.
I know when my dad got his and could load a bracing program it went from an hour long deal to figure one out to about 2 minutes.
The property in question was originally built as a grocery store and has HUGE steel beams running the length of the floor. The barrels will be mostly full, though some volume will be fruit and an even smaller volume will be head space for gas expansion/blowoff.
