I saw the Process of making Porter & ale through all its operations. They manufactur 1,000 barrels of Porter each day of the year & 100 Barrels of Ale. They have 35 set vats in the shape of hogshead that will hold one thousand barrels each making 35,000 barrels. They have suller room for 35,000 barrels more so they can store away 75,000 barrels of Porter or ale. They have two steam engines carrying on the esstablishment of 25 hors power each.
