Going Pro / New Building, looking for ideas
« on: February 23, 2015, 10:38:23 AM »
I'm thinking of building a new building (80x100). If you were going to build a building for a 30bbl brewery, what would you want to have?  Like wall/ceiling heights, wall materials, storage space, cooler space,and other specific areas. No need for a tap area, the current building has that.

Check with Siebel they have courses online and could answer the tuition question.

Most companies that sell that stuff will do a quote for you, check out for more information on who is reputable and who may not. Premier Stainless Systems, Ager Tanks, Pacific Brewery Systems and so on, I think there are some companies in the North Carolina area also.

We were going to get fancy ones but went with the cheaper "pub" style ones and we are still over $30 each.

In my internet research it seems that BPA leaches out at high temperatures. FWIW.  Also there is generally BPA in the liners of the bottle caps.

I use a heavy pair of open cuff leather gloves they protect from the heat and easy to remove if I get them wet with hot liquid.

I just got a pair of Muck Boot Jobbers so time will tell. My wife swears by them on the farm. If you want a good made in the USA leather boot look at Thorogood, you have to check each boot style as some are not made in the states. If you ever get to Merrill, WI they have an outlet store where I picked up a $200 pair of boots for $60 because of a scuff on the heel.

Never have needed it as far as I know anyway. If I do I'll let you know how it works.

Leos you could try some of this. I think you get stuff from BSG.

For a Diacetyl you want to raise your temp just as your yeast growth starts to drop and when you are close to about 60% of your attenuation.

Drop your temp to get the yeast to drop out say 60f and then dry hop, you reduce the nucleation and then the yeast doesn't pull the dry hop aroma and flavor out by the yeast dropping as the added benefit

Could be worse. At least your not in the south east with Panthers/Falcons.
But at least the Falcons are in 1st place in the division  ;D

I was watching some of the Eagles - Packers game yesterday and when I came back after halftime, they switched to Lions - Cardinals...must have been a good game at Lambeau  ;)

Night games on the East Coast are usually over by midnight, so it's not too big of a deal.  I don't usually watch the whole thing unless the Pats are playing.  The Indianapolis Colts starring in "199 Yards of Gray"  8)

Going to a night game sucks because I don't usually get home until 2 or 3am.

The Eagle - Packer game was a good one, even attending the game I got home at 10:30. At least I could get the Colt - Patriot game on the radio for the drive home.
