In other news, our event yesterday went awesome!

We hosted a beer scavenger hunt throughout downtown and threw an after party at the end featuring all the beers from our prospective brewers.

We'll be having a bunch of these, we're calling it Craft Beer Quest!

Shameless plug: craftbeerquest.com

I've been thinking really hard about it and there's a pretty solid chance that I might be acquiring a 1 BBl system pretty soon from Stout Tanks. I would have to cannibalize the Sabco and create my own Frankensystem using Sabco's computer. I already have the bigger pump and plumbing, so all I'd need is to take it out off the stand and add a second pump to take care of the mash->boil.

What I really like about the Sabco is the computer for sheer ease of consistency. The only problem is that switching to a 1 bbl system now would delay purchasing the 3 bbl system later.

Decisions... Decisions...

This is the cooler where my kegs, and eventually Bright tanks, are going to live





It's 541 cubic feet. I should be able to fit a pretty decent amount in there.

The only problem is that it's about 50 ft away from the Pub component so Im Looking at picking this baby up. Im waiting on Micromatic to ask a couple of questions, but it’s a pretty decent price and I need one anyways. I’m going to be running about 60-75 ft of line, and I’m looking at having about 15 taps coming from the walk in. Im gonna get killed buying the lines. Anyone have experience working with these?

I work out in the oil fields in South Texas; which means I can only do brewery work/post every other week, but my amazing partner is taking care of business while I’m out here. The plan for this week is to get the cleaning/sanitizing station up and running, which is probably gonna take me most of my week off. Hopefully I’ll find some time to brew. I want to make a winter warmer, a stout, and an imperial red. All to be ready hopefully by xmas.

Also on the docket for this week is ordering my kegs. Im probably gonna go with Kegcredit, cause you just can’t beat their price and service. I need to order about 50 kegs and I’m not really feeling tying up all my cash in kegs.

I've been doing a lot of CAD work on my time off, I'll try to post some CAD plans of the brewpub soon so you guys can get a better idea of the space and layout


Let me know if you guys have any feedback!

If you are ever in Corpus Christi stop by B&J's Pizza on Staples street. We started a brew pub last february, very similar to what you have going. Brewing on a sabco, making it work with what we have

I'm definitely gonna take you up on that. I'm usually working about an hour south of San Antonio so I'll come check you out soon!

Have you contacted KegCredit yet? Curious about their rates. We have been considering using their services, kegs and fermentation space is our number one hold back, besides for customers drinking beer at an alarming rate, but that is a good problem.

I have! Their rates are incredibly reasonable. You'll almost be wary of how good a deal it seems. Of course you need to sign an 18 month minimum contract but it comes out to something like 3$/mo for sixtals and 4$/mo for half barrels.

Too much beer drinking customers is a good problem to have!

I haven't placed my order for kegs yet, if you want to join in and share shipping costs we can team up.

We're downtown Houston in the corner of Franklin and Travis st. Shoot me a message and you can stop by whenever I'm in!
