We use Pub Kegs, http://pubkeg.com/ Around 30 for the whole thing and around 10 for just the blader. Very light weight so freight won't kill you. We generally use them for retail customers so if they never come back the 30 for a deposit pays for total cost of the unit. I wash the bladder 3 times then toss. Could probably do it a few more times. Completely recyclable, they are like a 5 gallon soda bottle. It doesn't take a lot of time to clean them because you can see inside and how clean they are getting, I can clean and sanitize them in less than a minute. Only pain is cleaning the outside bucket when they come back.

If those cost 100 for the outside I would spend the extra 30 bucks for stainless and not worry about buying bags at 4 bucks a pop.

Nice video and cool brewery you have out there. Our taproom is similar with board and card games and NO TV but not the big communal tables.

I think Thirsty Monk had to send all those t-shirts and hats that were made to Africa just to get rid of them. ;)

I would add my vote for Sterling as a substitute for Saaz.

50% wheat and 50% pilsner less than 15 IBU's  1056/05/001, extract to taste. Experiment with the different extracts to get what you want as far as flavor and aroma.

If you get onion/garlic from summit, ferment it a bit cooler like the lower 60's. I use it in my IPA never heard about anyone tasting onion/garlic from it. Our second best selling beer. You can smell a bit of it when you stick you face in a just opened 11# box.

That's cool. Looks like they stopped at Dave's Brew Farm.

I would add that a lot of their problem has everything to do with size.  It is easier to turn a ski boat than a tanker.  Organizations have inertia, politics and lazy people (and dare I say unions).  It is a significant strategic advantage to be smaller when it comes to change and adaptation.
It is not the unions preventing BMC from adapting, that's just silly.


In no way do I want to hijack this thread into a union pro/con debate.  My only point was to say that unions do add a layer of complexity which sometimes results in delay - not that they would prevent BMC from adapting.  A union has its members welfare as its primary focus.  Sometimes this conflicts with the goals of the company in which they work.

And that is all I will contribute to the matter.

My local 666 union wants donuts and coffee every morning. Easy to please.

Crazy devils!

Do hop contracts normally require a down payment or payment in full ?

Not mine, but you have to buy the amount within a year.

I think the point of having a light beer on tap is to have something for the non craft drinker. I think that beer bars that don't carry BMC are missing out on customers. That doesn't mean they should have more than one on tap. No when it comes to natural ice keystone etc. They are worse than Heineken or corona to me.

That is why there is soda and bottled water at our tap house.  I do enjoy taking tap handles away BMC (mostly Lienie's)

A good reason for a homebrewer with professional aspirations to play with all the hops not just the popular ones. You have to be creative to find hops without a contract.

After this past weekends beer fest, my opinion is buy the lottery tickets and even that might not be enough. WTF bottled beer cocktails? Helles and Wit in the same bottle! OK I'm getting off the soap box.
