I have the old Blichmann pots, and I love them. That new valve seems interesting. Not sure I like the idea of more o-rings though. It'll be interesting to hear a couple years from now, how well they do.

To be blunt, the questions I would ask of anyone considering opening a nano are:
Have you done the math on how much revenue/profit you can actually generate?
Are you able and willing to do this full-time while also working your day job?
Be sure to prime the chalk board or else it will be near impossible to get it clean. Can't tell in the picture if you did.
Awesome idea though. I've seen plenty with the paint on the front, but on the top make so much more sense.
el_capitan, it's a great time to do that sort of thing. One big benefit is that the soil is usually easier to work with at this time of the year, as many times you're dealing with a bunch of mud in the Spring. Not only is it messy, but you can harm your soil structure when it's wet.
The other huge benefit is that those cuttings that are moved will be able to begin developing new roots until the soil freezes. When you do this in the spring, root growth/development is very slow until the soil warms enough to get them going. Try one crown this fall and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
very nice! wish I was near you!
I wouldn't be surprised to spend 8-10 bucks for a 10 ounce pour of aged RIS at the bar. what kind of margin do you give your tap account(s)?
I would like to start a micro or nano brew business in my small town. I'm not looking into starting big as I only will be producing in kegs for local bars, resturants, pubs and clubs. So my question is can i self distribute or do i need a distributor in order to sell? Also would this be a good way to start? Thanks
I will give it one more week and see how it goes. I'll report back.
This could have been a subliminal slip up to convince the GF into getting into kegging sooner. Going to keg our second batch next weekend.
