The Kickstarter has been successfully funded and the money is already in the business account. I have been e-mailing with the TTB regarding details on their forms and will be soon placing the order for 4x80 gal CCFV, 1x75 gal boil kettle and a customized 20 gal kettle to be my mash tun. YAHOO! I get to order equipment! The much higher density of millet compared to barley means that my mash tun can be much smaller and still hold the same weight.

In other strange news the neighboring business across the street from the brewery has sent us (both Moonshrimp Brewing and the lingerie shop) a message that they expect monthly payment to begin immediately for our share of their parking lot. They also expect us to hire their landscaper. We don't use their parking lot (at all, ever, as we have our own) and have nothing besides concrete to landscape. People are strange some times.

Great job on the financing!

as for the notice... lol
But I hope you have access to a good lawyer, just in case. People put a surprising amount of effort into illegal extortion.

Man, I would tell them where to get off. If you are renting the place and not owning, I know under British law that it is the OWNER of the property that pays for any kind of up keep and not the person that rents. Not sure about American law in that way, but considering they were both the same once, it possibly may still be the same. As for the parking, if you have your own car park, I would ask them to explain why they think you should pay to use theirs, and to justify their note. It probably is classed as a form of extortion. Or really bad sales techniques which borderline extortion and blackmail. I work for a solicitors in conveyancing. So know a tad about property laws etc.

That being said, dude. Good luck with everything. Trying to get some Government funds to do the same myself. All we have here is De-Glutenised crap. So trying to show that there is a better way.

Congratulations! A 20 gallon mash tun? Thats crazy for what I assume is a 2bbl system. Millet does pack in better and has no husk but still....

O well, whatever works.

Yep a 20 gallon mash tun for a 2 bbl system. I don't get that much fermentable sugar out of the millet and supplement with beet sugar, but in terms of wight 25# of millet is about the same size as 10# of barley, maybe even smaller.

The crazy person across the street is not answering her phone so I am just going to send her an e-mail and imagine that the situation is over. If she comes after me with a lawyer, well, that would be interesting...and end badly for her I think as I know several really good ones who would help out the brewery for free.

Talked to the landlady, she said she is going to make the kids put the octopus back together, I have my doubts but we will see if it happens. Apparently the rooftop is turning into a bit of a hangout for people in the complex when I am not there so that needs to end before something goes badly. Perhaps my roof access needs a gate?

I just - as in a few minutes ago- put the deposit in for the equipment, four fermenters, a boil kettle and mash tun along with associated valves, clamps, gaskets and such have all been ordered and 70% paid for. It is an amazing feeling. Now going to go over and lay out the sewer pipe outlines for what I need to get built.

First paperwork is getting done! Zoning map had been signed for submitting to the local government (the Office of Neighborhood Involvement) and I am working on the building plans for the Oregon Department of Agriculture which has authority over all food manufacturing for off-premises consumption. Gonna give them a call tomorrow and see if they need anything else in addition to plans of what I will be adding to the building.

Kickstarter prizes are starting to go out, which is also fun. Still working on the design for the t-shirts and pint glasses but sending out vacuum packed homegrown hops in the next few days.

i've used the workhorse and i'm about 1.5 weeks into fermentation and tastes amazing. i'm pretty sure it's gluten free as well as GMO free!
