I'm not doing this so I can fart around, and play with professional equipment, but I would like to learn how to use it. I realize the seriousness of it, the risk, the hard work, the learning curve, and the dedication needed to make this work....It would be a helluva lot easier for me to sit back with a sweet homebrew system and play with that all day, but I know that I have the ability to do something more.
I posted on this forum because I am trying to conduct serious research on this and I value the feedback. I have read each and every post on this forum in my effort to develop an understanding of what it takes to make a good thing happen for me and the craft brewing community in my state. In fact brewpubs suck in Oklahoma, point blank. They are limited to serving 3.2 beer so they constantly try to make a stylistically high point point beer into a low point beer and it never works. I would like to change that by showcasing the wonderful low point beers that are available amongst the styles. Hopefully the laws here will change, but right now we gotta work with what we got.
It would be great to able to ditch my job to be a professional brewer. I can't afford to that now, but I can educate myself. I apologize for my ignorance re: equipment and methods of a professional brewery, but again, that's why I'm here.
I really, really appreciate the feedback I am receiving and I take your comments seriously. It's really helping clear up some issues I was foggy on and helping me see those avenues of research that I have failed to see before. So if it's Okay with others, I will continue to post ideas and questions in an effort to receive some valuable constructive criticism
