Leos, why not post this as an actual poll?I will try to do the poll. Never thought about it.
Very cool.How long did the planning and execution take from the conceptualization to the first day of operation of your brewery?
It took us about a year from the very first meeting. Then about 6 months paying rent on the facility until we had the building turned into the brewery, and then it simply took about 2 months waiting before all the legal mumbo-jumbo went through.
I can go ahead and tell you also that it was about an 80K investment just to get up and running. We just recently secured a 50K loan to grow. But we are also making about 5K in sales per month right now on the small system, and in a week or two we should be able to double our capacity. Hell, I might even start making a little pay check soon.
No Czech Patriotic music was involved. Maybe that was my error?You might end up with German Pils instead
BSI actually recommends feeding yeast.I also saved some of the yeast from the primary. I've been feeding it about once a month by pouring off the beer and giving it fresh wort made from DME.
My understanding is that this is not a good idea. You want the yeast to be dormant.
