It is my understanding that he is in assisted living. That way he can get the therapy he needs.

Depending on the state, I know Wisconsin has a monthly report on sales from every brewery that brews in Wisconsin. This comes from the State's department of revenue. They get paid excise tax too!

Not sure if they have small squares but a good site to pickup stainless fittings for a plastic tank.

A Big THANK YOU! to those who emailed or sent a card!

From Facebook

‎Chris to One Million Strong for Jeff Fuller

Would llike to thank everyone who took the time to drop Jeff a note on his birthday. His therapist said Jeff received a lot of emails. I"m sure he'll 'answer' them a little at a time, but to those of you who remembered him, thank you.

Nice looking place. Good to see it finally come to fruition.

Yes go after you demographic, but you should be able to produce a good beer in any style. I have heard lots of times "you do lagers, a lot of places do only ales". It creates excitement for patrons.

Your grain cost will range from 60 cents to over a dollar a pound depending on brands, base or crystal for 50 or 55# bags. It will depend on how much you order. Hops I think start around a dollar per ounce packaged in 1 ounce bags, the more popular the hop the more it will cost.  Looking at Northern brewer take their prices and divide by 3 and that is close approximation to what your costs will be, works for the grain anyway.

A friend who owns the local country store makes it with a sock similar to a mesh grain bag except with, I imagine since I haven't actually seen it, a finer mesh. He makes it in a food grade bucket. He says its a bit of a pain, but it works and their iced coffee tastes great.

I do it that way, it is a pain, but I only make a coffee stout once a year. I use a grain bag then I filter it again through Butter muslin. Everyday coffee I use the small filtron.

What's next, debunking the sea monkey aeration?

I had a great time visiting with you Jeff (hope I didn't talk your ears off). Nice to meet your wife and sister also.

It was hot and humid in the brewery due to the weather and a just finished brew day, which could have added to skin tone color.

Plastic bottles are ok, but they don't crush like cans. They also have the BPA stigma associated with them, warranted or not.
No BPA in the bottle it is a pet plastic like most home brewers plastic fementors the cap has BPA just like glass bottles. I know they suffer from people not knowing. The uphill battle
