Trying to start Up a 1bbl NanoBrewery
 
Hello Fellow Washington Brewers,

I am doing my research for my business plan to open a Nano/Mircobrewery. I am wondering if anyone has started a nano and got approved to brew at your house. If so I would like to pick your brain a little. If your in the Lacey/Oly area I would like sit down maybe over a brew session and talk about what i'm trying to achieve.

I don't know about your laws but in indiana you have to have a separate address for your brewery. There use to be a small nano brewery here that was operated out of this small a frame cottage that was behind his house. He had a 1 barrel system and used a stove and turned on all 4 burners to heat water. Pretty ghetto but it worked.

I would have to say the best place to find out answers on this would be the FDA/ATF....check their websites for the info. I dont see a problem with it as long as everything you do is within the local code. Let me know what you find out.

Best of luck to you RBG!

In Washington as in most states you need a building that is licensed commercial that meets regs i.e. no grain explosions due to the mill being too close to brew rigs and such. I would advise if you are in that area to try and find something zoned commercial in like Roy or somewhere cheap, because you can have a homebrew setup, but you must have the proper building.

You might want to contact the guy at http://www.mtheadbrewingco.com/ . He's in Graham and has a home/commercial nano operation.

Update: My dream is getting closer and closer kinda excited. Long story short I know a guy who is wanting to have someone brew for his company and has requested me to brew up some of my recipes to see if that's what he is looking for. I smell a partnership forming. I am going to go with a iipa, irish red, and porter. Im going for hoppy, malty, and roasty style. Any thoughts?

I read an article recently which indicated someone is renovating the old City Hall building in Darrington and planning to open a distillery & brewery. He indicated he was going to be looking for a homebrewer who wanted to take the next step. Is this, by chance, what you're referring to? If not, maybe you want to look into this as well.
