Hello Helpers!

This project is all about a reinstallation of a brewery operation in South of France. When we came here first in 2013 we found a bancropted brewery with extraordinary nice beer quality, we took over and had three seasons of growing demand and happy clients. Due to many reasons we finally had to move from the original building and now need to upgade and reinstall the brewing materials into the new premises. So far our team consists of:

--Anja, 47, German, she is running the operation, acts as the legal face to the outside
--Jens, 48, German, responsible for engineering, cost reduction and business development
--Andrea, 28, Italien, is doing whatever is needed and makes friend with many clients and is interested in learning everything about the business, he's running the operation in the winter, he finds and rules new markets
--Heinz, 64, German, Engineer, Inventor, Sailor, Traveller, Allrounder adds the eco thought in all aspects of the overall procedure, there is still many projects in his mind hence there is no end of implementation expected soon
--JuJu, 6, and Nuki, 4, threelingual apprentises interested in all aspects are a lot around since they are family with Anja and Jens
--there is several free lancing sales people

The brewing system is a 20BBL steam driven industrial installation leading to 4500l of beer fermenting after a 14hour brew day. To reinstall and upgrade it, it needs:

--installation and connection of the steam generator
--engineering, manufacturing, testing and commissionig a new burner using old frying oil and installation of the steam generator to the hot side of the brew house
--costruction of a cold storage room and installation of the glycol chiller to the cold side of the brewery
--construction of serving trucks as new festival equipment

People considering helping us should be prepared to do all kinds of workshop jobs as:
--metal works
--basic electrical works
--carpentry and wood works
--mechanical installations
--decoration and painting

We normally eat in the evenings together, have campfires going, there is usually a lot of people around of different nationalities, it's a vibrant place to enjoy life and doing meaningful things at the same time.

For pleasure we have the beautiful surroudings in Laguedoc Herault, the mediterraenean beaches nearby, the historic river barge of Anja and Jens, 2 ready to ride horses for experienced riders, cars for trips, bicycles to ride on, a canoe for adventure, a tent to camp with, many festival clients to visit, talk and party with, 150km to Spain, the Pyrenees and the Cevennes are not far from us, ...

We have had very good experieces with helpers from all around the world, we are very much looking forward to helping people planning to stay a minimum of 6 weeks in our team.

Sunny Greatings,

Croix du Sud Brewery.
