Brewpub equipment
 
Hello,

I think to open a brewpub and I'm looking for brew systems for brew pubs. I found a couple companies who sell brew system, but may be somebody can share their experience with sell companies. Any advises welcome

Welcome! You've got a lofty but admirable goal, and I'm sure I speak for a few of us when I say that we're excited for you!

First, where are you? That may help us narrow down your options.

And on a personal note, I think you should look to getting, The Brewers Association's Guide to Starting Your Own Brewery.
It has tons of info and helpful numbers.

Good luck with your dream. If you need any pointers let me know!

Used Brew Equipment Response Much Appreciated
 
Thank you Nwcw2001 for the thoughtful post you put up in response to andy75. I am in the same boat, wondering what it takes to go pro. The links you have provided and the BA Giude book will be a great help to me also. Seems I have found the right place to look for answers. I am happy I registered here.

Best of luck to you..and remember...that all of us at HBT are living vicariously through you. Keep us updated on how things are going.

I am in the same boat Andy, and I wish you the best of luck! My place is going to be pretty small, and we are going with a 2 bbl system. We are having a 3 vessel (80g,80g,90g) system built by Stout Tanks and Kettles. They can build you a 4 vessel (including conical) 1 bbl for less than 3k.
Our 2 bbl system is quite affordable as well, and will include conveniences like spray balls, butterfly valves, tri-clamp electric element adapters... very very cool toys.
John W. at stout tanks was very helpful and is willing to customize a system to whatever needs you have.

I don't think you can do much better than this for a new, SMALL system.

Budzu,
I must second it with Stout as well John with his quick and straight answers he will work with you. My problem was the high shipping cost of a fermenter from Oregon to Calif, it can be picked up a great savings.

Matt at CHI has been working on importing brewing equipment also but it's been a long time dealing with his supplier like nearing two years from the introduction on HBT.
On larger equipment CHI supplies tanks and equipment for the wineries in the Napa wine area Northern Calif.

could you give me a ball park of what that system is going to run you before shipping?
I'm also working on my business plan for a brewery. Would love to go a lttle larger, more like 7 to 15 bbl but I know I wont have the funds for that.

Have you received the Stout Tank setup? How is it?
