That is really cool, and an interesting overview of their process, especially the conversion during grain in... and the single infusion for a lager.
One note, not related. I am shocked that Harpoon would allow any brewer to wear shorts and boots like that. Nearly every probrewer I know has been bitten by some part of the process and had a boot filled with hot liquor, wort or cleaning chems. ALL of them now wear long cotton pants OVER their wellingtons to prevent spills from filling up that boot and require such from their employees!

mchrispen -In defense of jorts and boots; They run a 5 day week/24 hour brew schedule and Friday afternoons are their winding-down-clean-up-for-the-weekend days.

I really enjoyed those pictures and descriptions as well. I thought it was interesting about the "5 minute" mash. That is crazy. I was curious about pro brewers using a mash paddle. Can you enlighten me? I saw that guy stirring but if they have those big metal stirring things what is the point of using a mash paddle? Is it just to feel like the old days of homebrewing? haha. I am sure it serves some purpose but I guess I would like to know for sure.
