Do those that are anti AB also avoid Walmart, Target, Amazon, Home Depot, Lowes, Best Buy, Total Wine, Specs, BevMo? All of those can be considered anti competition.

Crap doesn't always lose.I do think that some expansions have been too aggressive, possibly Stone's. Not everything needs to be nationwide. People are drinking local, and although not every new or local beer is good, nor will they all succeed, I think the trend of local breweries is here to stay.
I agree. Especially your last sentence. I am sometimes surprised by how satisfied people are with 'meh' beer. It has to be truly wretched to get people to stop drinking it.
Same. Looking to try a few things, but won't be buying any new equipment until I am ready to build out my electric or NG system.So even if I keep the copper, I can see trying some kind of lodo/brewtan combination for those beers.
That's my plan, too.
Bummer. I'm not in the market now as is, so no worries. I have seen one from china that has some fuggly welds. I'd likely just make one out of garden hose and stainless tubing.Links for the chiller? Most I've seen are copper core.It an older model that Williams brewing used to sell. It Was all SS. Looks like they are not selling them anymore.
Honestly, the biggest reason I now use Iodophor most of the time is that it's just easier to use. It's easy to make a fresh 1.5 gallon batch for sanitizing a keg or something simple. The color tells you the effectiveness, no need for pH strips like that old bucket of star san.Pretty much the same, but fermenters are only every few batches unless I need iodophor for some other task.
I still use star san though, and it has an important place in my brewery. But yeast starter vessels/fermenters/kegs all get iodophor.
I'm surprised no one has stated the obvious yet: Who cares?+ 1
This obsession people have to rail against macro brewing is monotonous and boring.
