Is the Rye IPA going to be at the banquet or is it the bottle they give to the attendees?
Ironically, I have been looking at these numbers quite closely as our tasting room where we planned to sell 4, 8, and 16oz samples of the beer has come under quite a bit of attack by local residents.
In our market, with my overhead (rent, utilities, etc.), using the standard sixtel pricing in our area, I would need to wholesale 500 barrels per year to break even. That is a lot of brewing on any system less than 10 barrels. That is self-distributed of course, if I had to use a distributor, it would be more.
IIRC, you can make and pitch a started in as little as 18 hours, according to "Yeast" by White and Zainasheff. "Most starters ... reach their maximum cell density within 12 to 18 hours.Low iunnoculation rates and low temps can extend that time out to 36 hours or more, but the bulk of the growth will be complete within 24 hours." Make it now, pitch in 24 hours.
