That is why our tap house will be serving pints less than 4, we feel at 4 you cross the line. If costs dictate maybe we will resize the glassware.

I have been working on this for 6 months, I have come up with some things that work for brewing light beer with the high carbonate water. I would love to have a ro system but the water they waste I think it will not work for us on city water. Even though I could get it at cost saving at least 2k. Not doing the slaked lime thing.

I hear you wiley, I'll let you know how to get 7BBL Kettle and mash tun off a car trailer if you share your fermentor unloading secrets!

I want to say that you can do this, on your budget. You will need around 50 to 100k for what you need not counting your property. If you plan to do it on the cheap hit craigs list twice daily. I missed out on a $2800 chiller that sold for $200 by 2 hours. Doing it on a budget can be done that is how we are doing it. So you got to hit every place that you can find cheap equipment that you can make work. I can still mortgage the house to pay for the brewery but as Omar said don't mortgage you house to build your brewery, you may need to mortgage it to buy a canner later on!

When are you not trying to stir up trouble, bo? Honestly I always thought that was the main reason you were here.

With all due respect, I am much more respectful to people in here than you are. I even keep my cool when I am called names that the mods never do anything about. It's very one sided.

I swear it wasn't me.

Just wanted Beersk to drop the gloves! Guess most of you have never played hockey. Maybe I should have insulted his family.

Hope you guy's didn't touch the cup.

If you go with a Zucchini, you could go with one that doesn't need polination (perfect pick) you should be fine with 2 plants 3 would be plenty, don't let them grow longer than yourself. Don't let the neighbors see you checking them! They start upwards but begin to sprawl, 6-8 foot square you should be good.

I guess I don't get the joke.
The joke is he was super drunk when he posted that, check the time stamp.  So I guess, there's really no joke there, huh...

Let's go Cubs!

I was sober so go f##k yourself beer queer!

People still play hockey?  ??? FYI: Hockey is just soccer with sticks on ice. ;)

With that stick I will end you child producing, drop my gloves and beat the brain (if you have one) out of your skull. JS.

OK so I got the Kunze book and after 8 hours with it, I has given me 3 ideas right off the bat. A couple things that I didn't know but common sense would tell you if you sat in a dark room long enough. I have not waded through the technical brewery sections yet, but they seem to be aimed at the large breweries and tell you as much. Is it worth the $200 price I would say it depends, it does go through the processes of malting a full chapter. I say it is worth it if you are a pro brewrer (4th edition 2010) in all aspects, even with water and wastes streams, etc. If you are a homebrewer and want to know what the pros are doing I say spend it.

If you have the extra dough I would buy it. Mine was a gift but I would buy it.

I will give you another example, I will be brewing 7bbl of beers and double brews etc. and if I want to do something crazy it is only going to be a 1/2bbl because that is the size of my pilot (homebrew) brewery. I understand the want for it all the time but somethings are just a once in a lifetime thing. I can't tie up a bright tank for 7 months till the RIS is ready! but bet your sweet butt I can condition a 1/2 barrel easy for 7 months.
