We have a roof!
News just in, the roof is on and the wet mill is really starting to look the part.
The roof panels are on and we can now see how the levels move down the hillside during processing. The first section of the mill will house the first hopper and floating channels, where the cherries experience their first density sorting and size separations. Then the cherries move into a second hopper, where they are then pulped, and housed in the sealed fermentation rooms, where the temperature is a controlled variable, assisted by the heat-conserving mixture of the surrounding earth and concrete.
Once the chosen fermentation time is complete, the next step of drying can begin.
All for now, keep an eye out for the next update!
