Thanks so much! I should be all set to go now...just waiting for the pump from Rebel Brewer and the fittings from Bargain Fittings.

One thing that does worry me is how many people I hear opening breweries - I met 4 guys this weekend at a party who were drawing up plans (2 of them have no brewing experience Roll Eyes). Just makes me curious if oversaturation could become an issue given the popularity.
I was a Chef for sixteen years, I saw people try to open a restaurant with zero experience. They would always fail, so I would not worry about brewers with no experience. The thing i would worry about is turning something you love to do into work. I sure hope it works out for you!!b
Where does the $100 profit per barrel number come from? That make a lot of assumptions around cost of goods sold—and price of goods sold—doesn't it? I can't imagine this would be a stagnant number, but much more dynamic based on the individual business conditions.
LOL! You guys crack me up. I guess I should have checked with the forum first before I made business plans. Actually ... I'm just making this stuff up. Haven't been researching it for over 6 months... I'm just making "assumptions".... Seriously, I have met with the local distributor, have talked to local brewers - have even seen the sales numbers for several local breweries and what they sell their kegs for. I have a pretty solid idea what they make off a bbl of beer and what our resources are going to be. The hundred bucks is a round figure I'm throwing out for you guys - there's no need to go into it in detail. Let's just say for the amount of time involved it is not a lot of money. I'm pretty crazy to be doing this - but I'm not totally unprepared.
