I don't understand your plan. I think you are over complicating it.

How are you controlling the temp? Aquarium heater and refrigerator?

I think you are worrying too much. Brew a beer, keep an eye on it, adjust.

ETA - I just noticed that you mention the cooling liquid and wort equalizing at the set temp. This will be ok if the pump is running 24/7, but I don't think you want to do it this way. The liquid should be colder in order to pull heat away. You want the delta to be as large as possible and the pump will run as needed to circulate the cold water. Or is this a water bath?

There's an argument against national distribution.

He's only 9 hours south from the brewery.

I use iodophor for kegs. No foam is a plus here.

Food coming out wrong is partially the servers fault. They are the last line of quality control.

More expensive restaurants tend to have fewer tables per server and also have way lower turn over. A person at Applebee's with 5 tables turning every hour can make more than a server at a steakhouse with 2-3 tables that turn in two hours.

Nothing in the grain bill is too concerning. What was the mash temp? 10% acid malt is quite a bit, is your water very hard?

Leave them a $1 for cleaning.the table and doing dishes. I went to a Red Robin a year ago and sat at the bar. Damn bartender didn't even take my order. I had to use a tablet. Irritating.

Recipe?

Bad news, that beer is likely toast. All that oxygen so late was a bad move. Sorry.

 I don't know if it is so bad it can't be used. Pre-boiling could help reduce the hardness and dilution might be an economical compromise.

Pretty cool man. The controller on the floor is a bit wonky and I think they missed he mark in not allowing step programming. Price is solid.
Oh. I was under the impression that you could step mash. What a bummer.
I recently watched some of The Beerery videos, it was cool to see the wort change from cloudy to crystal clear during the steps.

You can still step mash, just not automated.

Steep ginger and sweetner for an hour in half gallon. Strain into rest of water and lime juice.

Not saying fully automated, through I wouldn't mind that.
