Does "no finings" include kettle finings?

If you aren't using kettle finings I'd start there and see how well that works. I'm still trying to fix my clarity issues (suspect water chemistry) but using whirlflock in the boil has made a huge difference.
Agreed, whirfloc and Irish moss do a great job dropping the proteins in the boil and its a good place to start and its cheap and easy.

I only use the gelatin like Jon mentioned, certain styles only but damn, a crystal clear beer sure is putty:)

Wait, we're human?
Some would say we tend to get a bit emotional about our beer but that's a whole other topic:)

You would have to investigate  your state and local laws governing commercial brewi g and where it is allowed as well as what types of facilities can be used, not to mention the TTB and the Federal regulations governing commercial brewing.

I'm not familiar with any states that would allow you to set up a commercial brewery in your basement or actually anything actually attached to your residence.

I think if it were that easy we'd all go pro and start making money on our beer:)

Great Lakes Hops charges commercial customers a fraction of the retail price per plant.
True but I believe they are still more than a basic rhizome.

You could also make several batches that came out great without sanitizing your equipment and come to the conclusion that sanitation doesn't matter. Its using best practices batch after batch that makes a good brewer. You can make a great beer with no starter and bad sanitation, but not every time.
Exactly and that was my original point, best practice means consistency and knowing my hard work will pay off as expected each and every batch

Good on ya! Although I'm not really sure what your point is.

I don't really recall anyone saying not doing a starter won't produce a good beer, its just not best practice to under pitch and I'm not sure 3 batches should be extrapolated to mean consistent success;)

Not trying to be snarky, just saying that perhaps your next batch could be the one that doesn't work out so well....

Great Lakes Hops is great and they sell bulk but they sell actual plants, not bare root rhizomes. Quality is excellent and your new plantings are further along than just a rhizome although its a more expensive product

Sounds like HAL might have other ideas for your beer....

I have found a basic salt scrub works exceptionally well. Simply wet a clean sponge, sprinkle a little table salt on it and scrub the inside of the glass, rinse with hot water, dry and pour.
