What tab handle you like the most?
1 is on left and 3 is on right.

Leos, why not post this as an actual poll? :)
I will try to do the poll. Never thought about it.

Yes,
You do not have a growth but you have cels that die.

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.

No Czech Patriotic music was involved.  Maybe that was my error?
You might end up with German Pils instead  ;D

I brewed Bohemian Dunkel based on article from Brewers Association.

I adjusted my water as well as I did acid rest.
My efficiency was 89%.
I have to say I am getting better efficiency with Acid Rests these days.

I also traded my 5 lb Aluminium tank for 10 lb steel tank.
 5 lb fill = $18
10 lb fill = $23

What are your bright tanks from?

By the way your place looks pretty big with plenty of room to expand.

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.
BSI actually recommends feeding yeast.

Check the point #3.
I did not see any other yeast house talk about it.
