Sounds like Flying Dog is having some issues tonight.  I've heard a couple of calls go our over the police scanner now, must be a pretty bad incident.  Something about an active hazmat incident and a visible ammonia cloud.  What would ammonia be used for?  Refrigerant?


My guess would be a refrigerant - or they have switched over to making "pink slime."

Ammonia would not be an ingredient, and industrially, maybe it is used as a cleanser. Most breweries would be using a sanitizer that is more neutral and rinses cleanly, then something like ammonia which can be very 'vaporous'.
