Beer to water use for average brewery???
Never mind found it - beer to waste water ratio is 1 gallon of beer to 5 to 10 gallons of waste water.

I would have guessed less, but I believe that.

Much of that is cleanup, more than one would guess.

It was in the book "Starting your own Brewery" - yup - cleaning. One of the things you have to check out before openign a brewery.

I agree with David... I know that some Eco friendly breweries were trying to cut it down to as little as 3... I think it was New Belgium or SN or some place similar
