For now it will just be 5 and 10 gallon batches. If it grows enough I will determine my next step. The flooring is 5/8" interlocking sheets on top of wood pallets. Pretty strong for now. The ground underneath that is composed of decomposed granite and clay. Basically cement.

Gotcha. What is the min/max amount brewed per year that defines 'nanobrewery'? I'm just wondering if I'm a nanobrewery, picobrewery femtobrewery...etc.

I saw that term referring to Homebrewers. I figure once I get over 200 gallons/year I'll be a MicroBrewery.

looks good .. I just found out that anything over 10 ft tall or larger than 100 square feet needs a permit foundation or not where I live. So my brew shed is on hold till I pull the permit.

Are you really going to sell beer? You know the black boot guys at ATF will come visiting. For a permit you can not have wood and have to meet loads of health stuff.

It may be none of my business and I hate to be a stickler but do you have the proper licenses to sell your product? its just that I work with a lot of state/federal mandates and I'd hate to see ya get jammed up... one of my insureds is in jail and paid a 1 million $ fine because he wasn't licensed to perform the operations he was doing .. bridge repairs for the state.

He made 2 million on the project . So after expenses they hit him with about 300k more than he made

If by chance the county decides it's necessary it's real easy to get permits here. I wonder if those "portable" car ports they sell at CostCo need a permit then? They're 200 sq ft. Some people anchor those down with cement. I would doubt it though.

I would presume that there is licensing and such involved? How much is a license to sell alcohol running you? Taxes on production? Are there certain regulatory mandates that dictate the design, layout or operation since you are producing something for consumption and sale?

I have a 20X24 Cover-it on my property no permit needed for anything with a canvas shell. I was taking that down to put up the brew shed . But with wood and shingles they feel anything over 100 sq ft is really a permanent structure.
