The milk man arrives
We get our milk permeate from the Parmalat plant an hour away from us in Winchester. While we only need 6000L of permeate, the only option was delivery in their 30,000L trucks. The massive size of the truck became an issue when it tried to get into our driveway. Paul (our architect) didn't make the mouth of our driveway wide enough but fortunately, the truck driver was very nimble and was able to make it work.
Once in our driveway, Neal stuck our hose out our milk port and it was connected to the truck. With the connection made, we turned on the pump and the permeate started to flow. In a few minutes our fermenters were filled.
