Yep...My neighbor is one of their yeast-pitchers...Er, I mean...brewery managers.
I believe the purpose of doing this is three-fold...
1)  Avoids permits/fees for trucking alcohol from state to state.
2)  Establishes a somewhat standard beer menu.
3)  Eliminates much of the costly equipment & processes that would be involved in running multiple breweries.
I would think that eventually the cost of fuel would outweigh the cost of the equipment, but they must have done the math and figured it all out.  Good for them for coming up with a novel solution.  But still . . .

Well, Tom, at least they have an AHA discount, of sorts.  I don't like their beers generally or their business model (or that the local franchise didn't pay their rent for nearly a year) but they are one of very few breweries in this area that have any recognition of the BA/AHA relationship.  That deserves some respect.

What I'm wondering is how you fit all that wort in a refrigerator.

"During the respiratory phase of this process, these tiny monocellular organisms convert the available oxygen in the hopped wort to carbon dioxide"

Well, if "monocellular" was a word, that would be true... ::)
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Hike that skirt up and go pitch your yeast.  :P

Pretty much the only advice needed here.

What am I missing?  What work is it to pitch yeast into wort?  Open fermentor, dump yeast, close fermentor.

Jack is "Schmidling" with a "g" on the end.

It's not true at all.  The CO2 comes from the sugar, not the oxygen.

          C6H12O6 --> 2 CH3CH2OH + 2 CO2

In wort, fermentation generally happens even in the presence of O2, because the oxygen is used to produce sterols and fatty acids.  The sugar level in the wort favors fermentation of the sugars, not respiration.

You're not he first to ask . . . as Denny pointed out, he's Schmidling with a G, but you never know what happened at Ellis Island. :)  Jack and I exchanged emails on that about 20 years ago, as far as we can tell we are unrelated, at least for the last few generations.  I can't remember if his family is from the same area of Switzerland as my grandfather was.

And thanks for the congratulations ;D

That's because you haven't asked him about his new mill.

Boy, he sure was 13 years ago when I started brewing!  Some classic "mill wars" between him and Dan Listermann on rec.crafts.brewing.
