    Resurrecting this to try to understand what you mean by "underlet," I'm reading that as leaving behind wort in the MLT purposefully to keep the grain bed afloat. Am I interpreting that right?

    The difference is ownership. We are owned by our members and governed by a board of directors. Everything else will be just like any other brewery or brewpub. However, with cooperatives the profits...

    Update

    Not that you may care, but we're probably going to open the brewpub this year. We fell into a relationship with a couple of local benefactors who want to build a great building downtown on the front...

    Brewing Water Category

    I'm a little surprised that among the discussion categories on the Probrewer forums there isn't one dedicated to brewing water. It is the principle ingredient in any beer, and this site has hops,...

    Amarillo, Texas which is in the panhandle of the state. We're on the high plains and have pretty warm summers and sometimes cold winters. Pretty much four seasons here.

    You say "As a brewpub," and I assume you're referring to additional revenues at higher margins for our house beers, right? Shoud the prime cost then also include COGS for beer?

  14. Poll: Results

    To some extend these result surprised me, although it's a pretty small contingent of respondents. I figured a strong majority would respond "$12 or more." Seems like most growler refills are over...
  15. Poll: I was mostly asking breweries what they charge,...

    I was mostly asking breweries what they charge, not necessarily what a given individual can buy it for. I think the cost of living variance across the country is too great to account for.
  16. Poll: A few days left

    This poll is open until Thursday, so please respond.

    If you selected "$12 or more" I'm curious how many charge more than $12 for a beer of average alcohol content.
  17. Poll: Growler Price Survey - Will there be another one?

    Yes there will! In searching for growler pricing comments, I found two growler price surveys from '07 and '08. How about an update? Please select a choice above for your vote to count. Thanks in...

    Would you ever have a need to access the bright tanks so that having them stacked would prove a giant pain in the ass? Otherwise the space-savings is awesome.

    This is our idea, to have volunteers hit it in sequence so one person doesn't kill themselves. I think you could gear it so that it wasn't unbearable. I'll have to think about how we would deal...

    Bike Powered Grain Milling

    I may get laughed down for suggesting this, but my guess is that someone out there has tried this or is actively doing it. I'm wondering if it's conceivable to run a grain mill for a 5-7 bbl system...

    Partial Filtration

    I gathered it wasn't ideal, but I've made several batches of homebrew with it and have had good success. That said, at the commercial scale I would probably want to reduce Mg, Na, and Cl as you say....
