The Pub / Re: White Labs pitch lol
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:23:59 AM »
Was just at the White Labs Facility in ASheville, NC. All they are doing is commercial pitches there, no homebrew packaging on site. Saw all the machinery that the world told Chris White could never be made. They told him "You can't do what you are describing. Once something is wet, you cannot vacuum seal it." They are now doing it at White Labs and the packaging equipment looks like a giant Food saver vacuum sealer.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: What's Brewing this Weekend?

Plan for tomorrow is house IPA/freezer cleaner. First time changing up my hoo schedule to just a 60 minute plus huge whirlpool and big dry hop charge. Throwing in some different varieties to move some good out if the freezer. Hoping the day is smoother than last brew day at the beginning of the month, although that pilsner is tasting awesome, even while still lagering

That's potentially a strong contender. It is not the burner my Bayou classic came with though.

Thanx brewbama. I think for now, I am still looking at propane outdoors, but do see induction in the future. Likely buying the Hellfire locally with a club membership discount to save a couple bucks even over the 4-6 online sources I priced it out at. They are all tied into Blichmann's MAP so the local discount offsets local taxes essentially and I can support local

Going Pro / Re: Common(or Uncommon) mistakes that new breweries make
« on: June 27, 2018, 07:01:12 PM »
From a consumer standpoint I see several consistent issues at new breweries:
Poor quality
Poor consistency of product
Too varied of offerings
Too narrow of a scope for offerings(think 7 different pale ales or IPAs as the only choices
Getting too crazy and off the beaten path with recipes before showing proper brewing skills
Limited availability
Limited operating hours
As Keith mentioned though, these are not just brewery specific, you can see these same issues in rookie businesses the world over.
His plan seems to have worked well, he is not just the brewer, but he is the brewer and a partner. His partners run the business and he has the freedom to brew and manage brewhouse operations.
Even the local to me 10bbl taproom has a whole family working there: dad brews, son cooks, wife seems to run the business.
All in all, you need to know that operating a successful brewery takes a team of dedicated pieces.
Hoping any of that helps a bit, consumer viewpoint only

What size batches are you doing indoors with induction? I don not do many 10gallon batches, but I do some. That's the cause for wanting a better burner. I like the idea of indoor brewing but induction unit capable of 10gallon batches sounds awfully spendy, more so than a burner upgrade.

It sure looked like it had a nice clean flame, just not very high. I have had problems with the high flow tripping or whatever. So I know what to look for with that, might need to clean it out though

No idea why that typed out like that. That could be Sean, but I'm not using the SP10, I have the classic square bayou classic. Don't think it's the same burner or regulator

Could be.

But that's not what I'm using. I have the classic square frame. Not sure if it's the same burner different set up

All Grain Brewing / Re: pale malt difference
« on: June 21, 2018, 05:21:27 AM »
I would say if you went 100%, it would be much better to go 100% Maris, vs the Briess. Either wway will make beer, the blend will add some character that 100% of either will not. Probably fine either way though
