Just be aware that you will most likely need to brew on at least a 3 bbl scale to make any money to compensate your time.
Major, how big is your system? I've been crunching the numbers for a 3bbl system, and I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how guys make any money on a 3bbl system. It looks like you could break even, which would be fine for what I'm wanting to do, but I'm having a hard time seeing how some brewers can support themselves on systems that small. Maybe I'm being overly pessimistic?
Thanks for all advice...maybe I am being overly optimistic. Now I know we aren't supposed to talk about price on this forum so I won't. I see a bbl though as just a little over 250 pints. Now times that by the "going rate" for a pint of craft beer. If you were to sell 3-4 bbls a month, via a tap room, I "should" be able to pretty easily cover my costs i.e. (rent, utilities, taxes, grain, etc..). Of course, like I said earlier, I am not looking at this as a career change. It doesn't have to make a lot of money, but it can't lose money.
