Long time before we get into our garden, but this year we will be adding a hoop house. We are planting only open pollinated varieties this year so we can start saving seeds. +1 to Ronnigers, the German Butterball is a great spud and stores well, only some of the tiny taters are starting to get soft now. I think we went back to zone 3 after our last two winters.

We financed our brewery and tap house through Craigslist (Cheap and well, not so easy) ;) , it is nice to only owe money for a building. We may not have rows of SS fermenters and fancy brewing equipment but it is a brewery. It allows for less stress in our lives which is always a good thing.

Siebel has a seminar along those lines in April, it looks to be sold out all ready.  ::)

It is called, Exit Strategy: Understanding the Value of your Business.

We have a three phase transformer in the front yard now, I know all to well about drains.

Going Pro / New Building, looking for ideas

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.

Going Pro / Re: Need a quote for a turn key brewery 5 or 7

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.
