    Is there no one in Mexico that produces it? I thought Mexico produced a lot. I'm assuming this is for your Baja brewery...I don't know if you have tariffs to deal with.

    If you don't need the brew house, does the TTB actually consider it beer? I know that Sonny Daze Cellars in Seattle tried to license as a brewery, but the formula was not considered beer by the TTB,...

    It's very possible your propane tank won't supply enough propane to meet your demand. If you see frost forming on the tank, this could indicate the problem. Bigger would help, but your propane...

    I've found their equipment to be pretty decent and well engineered, but I'm old skool enough to wonder how you calibrate something like that.

    A rotameter gives you a visual reference of flow,...
