    Like you, we can't put a chiller outside, at least one that is affordable for our use.

    Good morning,

    I own/operate a cidery and meadery. The problem you are having is likely due to a drop in pH from the added fruit. Raspberry is very acidic. Beer yeast may not be able to handle the...

    We make Cider/Mead, but we could make beer if we wanted. We purchased a 12 acre farm with a 50x60 barn, with an upstairs. We did have to get some zoning variances. I would tell you too look outside...

    I just installed a chiller and two 10BBL unitanks myself and used 3/4" pex, pre-insulated with a 1 inch wrap of insulation. I used about 100 feet total of PEX. The lines plus fitting ran me about...

    Good luck with the install. I was actually at your Cidery a few months ago when one of your tanks ran out of gas. It looked like a PITA.

    We listed a separation on our print. We didn't specify what type of separation. TTB approved without question.

    It sounds like you may be cold crashing without pressure in the tank. This would cause the tank to pull a vacuum, which would be equalized by pulling air through the check valve.

    Always cold...

    I'm a little embarrassed to say I've never even been to the state of Iowa. Only one state in between us. We travel a lot too, just never seemed to travel through or to Iowa.

    I would charge by the hour. Anywhere from $40-150 for a private contractor is the going rate, depending on where you live and the scarcity of the work being done. For example, a painter doing a...

    I like the layout, it looks like it would flow well. You need to work on the walking areas. 3 feet is not enough room for walking. To maximize taproom sales you need table service.

    For tables,...

    I sanded mine off and you cant even tell where the graphic was or where it was sanded. Use a fine grit paper, you can't damage the stainless. Remember that the elements react with oxygen and water to...

    Loan payments on a SBA loan are going to be pretty high given that is a shorter term loan. As far as interest rates go, they were around 8% when I was looking into it last year, so I would rather...
