How legal would a reverse competition be? Everyone bucks up for a bottle or two of the FLAGSHIP brew and you ship us yeast samples for evaluation.  ??? Suppose it'd have to be your "personal" beer and not that of the brewery.

Just sayin'; I'm sure we'd all like to try the beer that launched a brewery...

I don't think it would be a problem if we donated the money to charity, or even the AHA. I'd be more than happy to participate in something like that. Depends on what Denny and the other Admins think.

Edit: Just reread your post. I mean - it would have to be a raffle or something. I'm simply not going to send everyone on the forum a bottle of beer.  ;)

Hmmmm...interesting concept.  Don't know if it's be legal or not, though.  Let's talk in the mod forum....

Congrats on making it happen.  Where's this going to be located?

Yellohammer Brewing in Huntsville, AL. We are focusing on Belgian and German style ales with (what we hope will be) unique American twists. We also want to have a line of kick ass IPAs. Our motto is "European Tradition, Uniquely American". We will be draft only to start but we would like to start doing some limited bottlings in Belgian style bombers with cork, wire cap, the works. Problem is we won;t be able to sell them in Alabama at this point in time until they change the law. We are hoping to be able to fill growlers some time in the next few months out of the brewery door.

Starting very small. Basically just a 1.5 bbl system. We have a few 42 gallon blickmans and we also have some 3bbl jacketed, cooled conical fermenters on order. We plan on back to back batching. Once we are up and running and testing the maarket we plan on going to either a 7 or a 15 bbl system hopefully within 12-24 months.

I know a commercial operation is much, much different that what we do in our back yards.

 But, you are going to batch sparge, right?

Actually, yes! At least to start. Batch sparging now with a pump and a 20 minute vorlauf. I'm getting very good results on the test system. Its really not going to be much different than a big homebrew operation to start except we have a wet area, a grain room and an office.
