We have some plastic kegs and some used stainless sankes. Gonna probably sell off all the plastic kegs when we start leasing.

The TTB wants to see a detailed record of every work day, wether you brew, clean kegs, mop floors, or whatever. This is something I have tried to do but have fallen massively short at. My record keeping has been atrocious. But we have documented every brew day and every keg or case of beer we have shipped. Not looking forward to the next inspection but I have known others with similar problems as myself and the inspection has never turned out bad. All they really want is to make their tax money.

That said, be sure your bright tanks are calibrated.

It'll make for a more profitable business.

It better or I will be out of business!!! Amazing how expensive this stuff is. You about spend as much or more on cooperage than you do on tanks!

We are actually looking into leasing kegs now. The company we are going to go through works through the distributor so if the keg comes up missing it is the distributors fault. Course, it costs around $1400 per month minimum. F'ing racket!!!

I believe I recall seeing pictures of your operation early on with homebrew conicals in upright freezers. You've definitely come a long way. Very nice upgrades.

Yep. 42 gallon blichman conicals. Definitely was crazy.

She/he is going want to specifically see a record of what you have shipped. The TTB is about making money for Uncle Sam. You show you haven't slighted the you got nothin'' to worry about. You are allowed to consume and take home a certain amount of beer per year tax free, kinda like homebrewing. But you need to document what you sell very carefully.

We didn't have any problem with our post approval inspection. Lady was friendly, told us a few things to do differently and gave us some paperwork that showed how she liked it done. They looked through our books. Was no big deal. I was a bit concerned at first, but was NBD.

No, I don't. I'll ask Ethan. He ordered them. I just gave my thumbs up.

We actually got a good price on these. We were able to talk them down and get something that was fairly close to the quote we got from china + chipping. Don't get me wrong, they were definitely pricier but when you factor in I can start filling them next week as opposed to March or April ....

awesome!  I'll take your toys  8)  How bout them Titans  ??? :P ;D

You can bet I thought about you, damn it!  :P

We have another 30 bbl fermentor and another 30 bbl bright on the way after the nw year. We ordered these from GW Kent. They were a bit pricier than the one's we had been having made in China through a company I won't name - but they were available now as opposed to 4 months and we didn't end up paying too terribly much more when you factored in shipping from China. And no shadowed manway, mirror polished welds, separate jackets on cone and body. They are pretty sweet.

Hoping to get a 30bbl brewhouse within the year but I will be back to back batching into these in the meantime.

New glycol unit from Pro Refrigeration should be here within 30 days. With my current unit will only be able to rig one up for use.

Old 7 bbl fermenter look like toys now.

I always just battled warm summer water with the cool over night trick. Narry a hitch, kinda nice to not have to screw with aerating and pitching until the next day.
