Had a Stone "Drink By"
I taste Nelson's in it.

Belting out some pilots on Monday. Took all weekend cleaning, installing, and calibrating equipment.

Current Flagship Considerations: Very hoppy pale ale, lemon-lime hefe, Munich Dunkel

We have our brewhouse picked out! Only a 2 month lead time

Its decoction mash capable. Our lagers will be superior.

Edit: Damn I'm good. Nelson/Galaxy dry hop

That's a GW Kent brewhouse. She's pretty. Included mash hydrator and agitator =D. Though I am not a fan of the combitank. I think I'll survive

Jeez! Color me impressed. Who's your target market down there? Not college students I'm guessing. Is there much demand for craft beer in statesboro?

Hoping to sell a good bit of beer to students, much like Terrapin is to UGA. The demand for craft beer in the area is small, but growing steadily (Georgia seems to be the last frontier of the craft beer movement) Unfortunately, the sell-on-premise pint law failed in GA so we won't be making a billion dollars selling $3 IPA's to students . We'll be distributed to Augusta, Waynesboro, Savannah, and a few other south eastern cities off the bat.
On that note, I am wary of our distributor. I wanted to go with the big guys who make it to Atlanta, but the primary financier decided otherwise.

There is an huge difference between commercial grade cleaners/sanitizers and homebrew scale cleaners. No Starsan and PBW for the big boys. I have been researching and weighing options for a few days. Trying my best to keep caustics and strong acids out of the brewery. (except for passivization, I have every intention of acid washing my tanks for that)

I know our website still isn't operational, so like us on Facebook:

Got my cleaning chemicals selected finally.
Craft Brewers Conference on Tuesday. STOKED.
Brewed a Belgian Wit today. pH was all wonky, gonna up my acid malt next time.

My god is it hard to get things done with foreign equipment suppliers. 20 emails later, I finally have all the gaskets for our fermenters on their way here.
