    That's an awesome business idea if you can get them to grow, but I wouldn't be interested if I was in your area.

    The only times I've done wet-hopped beers, they were free or $1/lb. It's just too...

    Depends if you'll be reusing your yeast or not. We add the enzyme when we pitch the yeast, it gets all the way down to 0, then we dump the yeast.

    1) You're correct, don't draw from the middle one, that's were all the trub is!

    2) If you're not dumping the trub down the drain, that will make a lot more work for yourself. I've never heard of...

    In my opinion this is the hardest of hard roads to take in 2018. Even if it's not a great location, I would open a taproom, sell as much as you can through there, gain fans, gets direct feedback, and...

    -10% labor costs are a lot lower than what we've been paying, closer to 25-30% seems reasonable from my experience. If we paid the minimum tipped worker wage that would be a lot...

    I don't understand why the Foxx one is needed, on the picture there's clearly already another shutoff on the vent side. Why wouldn't you just use that shutoff to control the flow rate?
