I would say plan for growth now. You're putting in 30bbl tanks now, who's to say in a year or two you won't be upgrading to 100bbl? adding more fermenters? Finances allowing... At least 3-4 stories high, follow in the path of Stone, Sierra Nevada, etc and go green. Recycle byproducts, solar panels, etc. its much easier to do up front than it is to re-engineer the facility. If you don't already have a professional brewery consultant, go get one!

ok guys, put a cap on it and go carb for a while...

I've done overnight mashes in the past, 8-12hrs and I get thinner, dryer beers. So time is a factor along with all the other stuff mentioned before. I'll definately try a shorter mash and see what results I get... would be real nice to shorten the brew day.

I bought a couple of kegs off a liquor store years ago... yea, probably 'stolen'. I don't feel guilty about it, they were a bit dented up and from budwieser. I didn't hurt any craft brewery in the process. I don't know why there always has to be ethics around buying used kegs... there is so much illegal stuff going on everyday, much much worse than this and we want to accept the guilt of buying a possibly 'stolen' keg... there are bigger threats out there to worry about.

There's The Professor! Long time, no speak! I have been dying to taste the new Ballantine they released but its only back East from what I understand. Haven't been able to find it anywhere in the PHX area.

Would you mind posting your recipe that uses Munich malt? I'd like to try another variation.

I've had to change up the hops in the past due to availability and have to admit, the recipe I posted is by far the best in my opinion. I'm always up for trying different variations though. I think I'll give Hopfen's receipe a try too.

after alot of research years ago, this is what I found:
Echoes of Ballantine
10 Gallon / All-Grain
Grist: Mash 60 minutes @ 152F
18 lbs British pale
1 lb British crystal 55L
1 lb Carafoam
3 lbs Flaked maize/corn
1 lb Flaked barley
90 minute hops:
2 oz Cluster (AA% 6.5-7.0)
60 minute hops:
2 oz Brewer's Gold (AA% 6.5-7.0)
30 minute hops:
2 oz Brewer's Gold (AA% 6.5-7.0)
15 minute hops:
1 oz East Kent Golding (AA% 4.0-5.0)
End of boil/Flameout hops:
1 oz East Kent Golding (AA% 4.0-5.0)
Water modified to Burton profile.
Wyeast # 1056

I know its nothing close to the original but boy is it good. I wish I could find some old timer who actually drank the original and remembers what it tastes like to get some feedback. Either way... this is one of my most brewed recipes. I actually have it on tap right now.

I have a blood orange tree and make a BO brew every year. wash the fruit, zest it and add it at end of boil. For the rest I've done it 2 ways. The first time I peeled the oranges, took the fruit and crushed it up and added it at end of fermentation. Let it sit for up to another week... came out good. Since then, I juice the oranges and take a quart of juice and boil it down to about 1/2-3/4 cup and add that at end of fermentation and then let that sit for about 3 days until that fermentation is done. Always comes out good and have never had any off flavors associated with it. I use the zest of anywhere from 3-6 oranges and whatever it takes to get a quart of juice. I like my fruit beers to be light and not sweet or overpowering.
