I'm going to create an app to take your BAC called "Piss Test". It will post pictures online of people drunk/stupid enough to believe that peeing on their ipad is a good idea ;-)

I don't know about Mikkeller or stillwater but Pretty Things doesn't do contract brewing. They do an alternate proprietorship. I don't think the implication was that AP doesn't make money, jsut that CB doesn't
Have you onsidered contract brewing?There is NO money for you in contract brewing.
Unless you are going to build up a brand up front and then build the brewery.
If you can find alternating proprietorship that might be better proposition.
+1. I have talked to too many contract brewers who say they haven't made a dime. contract brewing really is about marketing than brewing anyway. In fact I think it has very little to do with actual brewing. So you came up with a recipe. Big deal.
The "alternate proprietorship" at least gives you some control over the brewing part.
So what you're all telling me is that you CAN taste the love.
I have a theory (hypothesis actually) that I will probably never be able to test. It goes like this
take a recipe (beer or food) work it out so that you can pretty much duplicate it every time and take any and all notes needed so that another person could also duplicate it.
now program a computer/robot to accomplish exactly the same thing, following all the same steps exactly.
place the computer head to head with a human brewer who really cares about the final product. compare the products. My hypothesis is that there will be a (subjected, sensory) difference between the two products.
i.e. I think you would be able to taste the love.
Does that make sense? For a 1.054 lager with a stir plate it calls for 7 vials of White Labs per 3.5 quart starter. WOW.
I only have a 2000ml flask.
Is that right 7 vials at $7 each.
That's how I got both of my stir plates (they are heated too) but I doubt they would work on a 5 gallon carboy.
According to Beersmith 2.0 a 3 step starter with 1 pack will give you @4200 billion cells
step 1: 1 pack (96 billion) in 1l =397 Billion
