Cooking with Gas

I see that Bruichladdich is finally starting to benefit from their pioneering biogas project. I covered this about a year ago, when I was much more active on this blog. They essentially take the waste vegetable matter from the malting and distillation processes and use anaerobic digestion equipment to generate gases (like Methane, presumably) that they can use to generate electricity. Since this is a very green project, I bet they aren’t using a boiler-type system to convert the gas to electricity; I suspect a fuel cell.

BTW, Bruichladdich is using the Lomond still I mentioned in that story to make gin: Islay gin. I’d like to try some of that…. I really love their “because we can” attitude — are we positive that Bruichladdich isn’t based in Silicon Valley?
