Use RO or distilled water when you mix it.

If you have hard water you can use it immediately without problems. Using RO or distilled water you can reuse and store starsan for long period of time.

Next time in the suburbs I might stop at the largest Asian market in the state to look around.  Sure they have some interesting sugars there too.


They have Agar.

I plan to look harder next time to bring back some yeast and add it to my yeast bank.

This is interesting topic.
By US Customs you can NOT bring any live yeast/bacteria/micro-organisms into the country.
But they do not have a problem when you bring that bottle of beer with live yeast in it.
Figures.
Just do not try it with cheese or yogurt.

I appreciate the feedback.
For right now we decided to purchase tap handles.
Not enough time in the day I supposed.
Here are actual pictures of proposed tap handles wit someone else brand of course:

Will it change your mind?

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.  ;)
Very cool.

I am also planning on using them.
Price is right and they do not have SS scrap value.
