For those who haven't seen it on another board, Keith is just about to get his brewery open and make some beer!  Way to go, man!  Maybe post some pics over here?

Right on Keith!  Don't forget us "homebrew folk" now that you're big timing it!

Congrats!

Where are you going to be located? 

We'll give you a couple months before we complain we can't get it in other parts of the country :)

Thanks guys! No sexy pics of fermenters or brew stuff yet. Just construction - Ill be happy to post some.

A few more progress pix...

Grain room awaiting inspection before drywall



Wet area awaiting concrete pour (it's big enough for a 15 bbl system although we will be back to back 1.5 bbls into 3 bbl fermenters to start)


Concrete forms for floor of wet area


Cement truck guy was pretty cool, he went out and bought a $9 six pack after talking to us!  ;D

I take it you guys are doing the majority of construction yourselves?

Everything but the electrical. We have a few friends who are not part of the organization who have been amazingly helpful. Its like an amish barn raising!.  ;D

We may be able to light the kettles by August 5th but I'm pretty sure there won;t be any beer by then. Regarrdless, we are going keg only to start.

One thing I didn't mention: we did get TTB approval just yesterday so, as far as the Feds are concerned, we are a legal brewery!

Orbs in the pics... you have company around you! Leave a bit of brew in the bottom of your glass for them!
