HLT is already procured, but the boiler is one of those dual jobbies with a 'basket' that's full or perforations that you throw the grain into, and then for mash out you slowly lift it out with a winch while running the sparge onto it.

Fermenters are 600 L each, or 5 BBL, dunno about the boiler.

Thanks for the advice guys. Heading out there now, it's a 3.5 hr drive...
Interesting idea. Your brewhouse efficiency might suffer.
How do you empty spend grain?
You know you will have about 300 lb per batch.

How do you clean fermenters?
Do they have CIP head?
I think those fermenters have floating lids.
How do you control fermentation temp?

Welds in brewhouse need to be water tight but do not have to be sanitary.
How do you keep trub from entering the plate chiller?
What kind of pump is there?
You should have 1 hp pump.

What is the packaging?
Only bottles?
Any kegs around?
Keg washer?

Did you asked these questions before considering purchase?
You do not have to answer it on forum:

What would be the market for your beer there?
What would you sell your beer for?
Would people buy it for your price?
How much beer you have to brew till you break even?

Sorry to hear about it too.

Would it feel better if I tell you that I have dumped my first 75 gal down the drain?

Back to OP.
You are pitching it at lower temp so you should pitch more yeast.
Lagers and Hybrids have longer lag time.

You could donate it to the bar, and whatever sales you make could be given to a non-profit organization...
Can not do that.
Keep your homebrew for home.
Share it with your friends.
Enjoy it.

Unless you are serious about doIng it professionally do not even think about licensing.

That is all nice and well but 25k will not get you that far.

On the other side it is great that they are doing it.
