    Re: A Big Texas Howdy

    It'd be a bit unconventional, but a good architect should be able to design you a warehouse that takes advantage of natural airflow and such to help keep it from getting quite so hot during the summer. An air-conditioning system would be quite expensive and wasteful to run.

    Re: A Big Texas Howdy

    Wasteful could be the amount of whisky that evaporates.

    And I think your opinion might change when your on the top floor of the warehouse on a day that is 104 degrees. I used to deliver furniture in the summers and when it was 100 outside it was about 150 in the back of the boxtruck. You could only stay in the back and pull furniture for a few minutes before having to escape for some fresh air. It would seriously melt you in there.

    I do agree that there is probably a way to efficiantly airflow the warehouse.

    We've already designed a barrel barn prototype that will solve the existing problems. We hope to start construction on the prototype this spring but this is an expensive endeavor.

    Re: A Big Texas Howdy

    The trip to the distillery is shaping up to be this Friday around noon. I will be getting in touch with Dan tomorrow and schedule things out. If anyone is interested in going...give a shout and we'll get you set up. Randy, Wade and I are on the list as of now. There are a few that have not confirmed at this point.
    Looking forward to it.
