The good folks at Alpha Brew Ops, who are making the canning line we’ll be getting very soon, sent us some very cool videos today. They show the canning line in action for some test runs.
Here are some cans getting filled:

Out of 200 cases yesterday and 230 today in test runs at a brewery up the road from the manufacturer, the line rejected low fills every time, and there were only 12 of those in the 230 cases they did today. Here are two cans that they manipulated to get video of the reject station:
Even the last little rinse is pretty cool:
We’re so excited that it’s almost excruciating waiting for the line to arrive, but seeing how awesome it’s going to be makes it much more bearable!
