Going Pro / Beer volume vs. Profit margin.

Recently I come across article about Russian River Brewing Co out of Santa Rosa CA.

They brew about 14,000 barrels a year.
The brew pub's sales account for more than half of Russian River's total business.

From this source:

Just do a simple math how much beer accounts for more then 1/2 of the sales.

The Country Malt Group is pleased to make available for the first time in North America, the excellent malts of Prostejov Maltings - Sladovny Soufflet from the Czech Republic.

Going Pro / Counter Pressure Keg Filler
« on: May 26, 2012, 07:44:39 PM »
I just want to share picture of my counter pressure keg filler.
It took a days of thinking but finally it is here:

The hardest part was to connect Beer thread to TC connector.
Little bit of tubing did the trick.

I just want to share a few pic of my bulk CO2 tank.
Too much demand will freeze it.

Happy carbonating everyone :)

Going Pro / Filtering carbonated beer.
« on: March 01, 2012, 07:32:43 PM »
I just want to share that I filtered about 10.5 BBL of carbonated beer to kegs in about 2.5 hours.
I did not lose carbonation and I am as happy with the result as I can be.

First I want to say that the approach I took is not practical for homebrewer.
I used pump to pull beer out of bright tank that was at 13 psi and pushed it thru the filter at 17 psi to the receiving keg that was at 12 psi.

I used 1 micron cartrage and 20" X 4" Big Blue whole house filter.
Beer did not foam at all.

Kegging and Bottling / Beer Thread vs NPT
« on: February 03, 2012, 06:47:59 PM »
Can someone tell me what is beer thread BPT vs NPT?
How can I connect these two threads together?
I can not find too much info about it.
Are they the same?

Thank you

General Homebrew Discussion / Burned Wort?
« on: January 10, 2012, 03:36:32 PM »
Can someone tell me how burned wort taste like?

I have burned two of my heating elements while I was was at my 90 minites boil.
Elements were submerged and I was VERY surprised that happened.

My theory is.
I was adding Sinemar to my Dark Lager at 60 min and some of the Sinemar got on the element.
I used Sinemar before with no problem.

Beer is fermenting now.

General Homebrew Discussion / How to open 55 lb grain bags.
« on: September 27, 2011, 04:12:25 PM »
Look what I have learn today.
How to open sawed grain bags.
It is much faster then cutting it off.

Cut off completely the braided threads dangling at the end of the seam

Pull the white thread out of the red loop

Then pull gently on the white thread until the entire seam is unraveled and the bag is fully open

Thank you Weyermann.

What do you think.
Could it work?
Will it work?
How warm to ferment it to get some fruity esters?
Is 60F too warm for this yeast?
