  • Starting up a nano brewery - recommended equipment and advice?

    I am in the works of starting a nano brewing in my small town (5,000 people) and I am a homebrewer. There is a need for a small brewery here and the community overall wants one. The closest one is about 40 miles away. I'm considering investing in the new Spike nano 1 bbl system but do not know if it will be enough to keep up with demand. I'd like four flagships always available and two to three seasonals. Also, if I went with the 1 bbl how many fermenter tanks would you recommend? I have been looking at the to keep up with demand? Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

    You might want to consider a little larger system. At least 2 bbl or 3 bbl system. Any brewery that I have ever dealt with that started out with a 1 bbl system quickly realized they started out to small. Last thing you want to do is run out of beer or needing to brew 7 days a week just to keep up on top of running the business and possibly still maintaining a full time job. Check out All of the equipment is built in house in Michigan with US stainless. No Chinese tanks.
