Good News Everybody
I apologize for how long it has been since my last update. The re-tooling on the plastic injection mold die is complete. I’ve included some pictures of the mold at the bottom. We are on track for shipping and working hard to get the GrowlTap to everyone by our goal of December 20th . I’ll be sending out the surveys for everyone today, please be sure to fill them out as soon as you can. Not filling out your survey will result in you not receiving your reward.
Since everything is coming out at in the same month we need to figure out the best way to handle the orders from backers who paid an extra $10 for October shipping. I was thinking that we could ship 6 additional CO2 cartridges with your order. We could also just refund the $10 and mail out checks. Please let us know what you are thinking in the comments section.
I’m guessing that the majority of our backers are more interested in receiving their GrowlTap than their T-Shirts. In order to expedite our shipping the manufacturer will not be sending out T-Shirts. I will send them out in the first 2 weeks of January. I hope this is acceptable.
We were in Zymurgy magazine on their holiday gift guide! For those of you not familiar with Zymurgy it is a publication by the American Home brewers Association and sent to more than 36,000 members.
I’ll be flying to Atlanta to be present at the manufacturing facility until all of the Kickstarter and pre-ordered GrowlTap are shipped. Follow me with the username @GrowlTap to receive updates as we progress. I’ll be posting lots of pictures and updates.
In June we had an event at Prost Brewing and handed out prototypes instead of shipping them. It was a blast and I really enjoyed getting to know my local backers. As much as I would like to do the same with the production units I’d rather get them shipped of than force the Metro Denver backers to go without their taps for a few extra days while I am in Georgia. Maybe we can have an event a little later in the year.
