The New Braunfels Brewing Association has a large force of men at work preparing for increased capacity production for the coming summer. In addition to the exten-^ sive repairs made necessary by the army /airplane which collided with the building I last fall, all of the machinery has been prac-l tically replaced new with some improved \ facilities to increase production. The big oil 'engine is being arranged to run with a short £ chain drive from the fly wheel to the ice ti machine direct, which will add several tops ^ to the daily output which was lost through the long belt drive and countershafts....In the Busto cooling department all of the cooling vats are being recovered with a mineral j«£insulator which will reduce the amount of [Jtp'efrigeration required to, coo I this beverage, and will allow more room which will be utilized for an additional cold storage • . plant to hold a reserve stock of ice for emergencies. The local company was com-I pelled to ship in a car or more a week last summer during the warmest weather and they are trying to arrange their plant so this will not be necessary the coming year as it makes the cost price considerably higher...One thing sure nothing was overlooked to give a pure, clear ice to the customers.
