6 hour drive for me to come buy a beer.  :(
What are your distribution plans - at least initially?

New Glarus won't distribute in Illinois because of the BS here.
We will be self distributing brewery and we will try to go after local market first.
I do not see us going out of the state any time soon.

So you best chance to get our beer would be visit Eau Claire.

Looking forward to seeing some pics of the brewery.

Are you still planning to use conical fermeters?

Best of luck to you.

So far we have empty space.
We should be getting 6 350 gal conical and one 110 Gal propagator tank.
No open fermenters so far.

I just made Czech Dark Lager with 90% Munich II and I thought it was too much.
100% Dunkel is great but it might be just too much for Bock.
Doing 50/50 Munich I and Munich II might be fine.
You could add 10 to 20 % Pilsner malt just to make it little lighter and add some enzymes.

I am having new brew pots done.
I just went to see them.
I think they are quite large.
What do you think?

I would say pretty cool too.

Brewing another Bohemian Dark Beer.
I would like to be close to desired recipe now.
I have been brewing the same two beers for over 5 months now.

Nice looking recipe.

1 lbs Carawheat (Weyermann) (50.0 SRM) Grain 10.96 %

11 % of 50 L should give you nice sweetness (something like Cara Munich 2).

Check this guy out - he's pretty darn cheap Brew Stands.html

Who's the guy that builds them?   ;D

Interesting question.
There is no indication where it is build and who makes it.
But they are more then willing to take your credit info!!!
By the way. they say that shipping is free.

Now let think about it.
Too good to be true?

Lagunitas IPA, that is a prime example of a beer I truly enjoy. 

You are in luck.
Here is the recipe and technique how to make it.

Anyway, my question is how do you get good flavors out of hops with just a subtle bitterness?  Is it due to the types of hops used, or simply a result of brewing techniques like "dry hopping?"

Usually late hop additions will give you bitterness without lingering bitterness.

I bet Thirsty Monk is happy to hear the electric setup is going good!

I haven't had the time to check the rest of the forum much. But tell him that the elements we are using kick gas in the nuts!  ;D My partner is the one who set up the electric kettle so I honestly don't know much about what went into it. But I can ask him.

Yes I am very happy to hear that 2 elements can do just fine with 55 Gal.
I am planning to have 6 elements in about 180 gal BK.
I have dedicated 300 Amps 240 V transformer for the brewhouse.

I would be more then interested to know your electric set up.

By the way Congrats majorvices.
