I'm still way early in the research phase of this, but my pipedream is to get maybe a 1 or 2 BBL system set-up with full automation through a web browser so that I can start a brew day while still at my day job. Hoping that I could only sell growlers and bottles out of the brewery in order to raise enough cash to move on to a 10-15 BBL system. For the time being, I will enjoy my 3 keg system and continue on with my mundane job...
Hey joenads. I'm also in Summerville and have some of the same ideas in mind for my brewing future. I've been researching the SC Code of Regulations and info on TTB for two different potential startups. PM me and maybe we can share ideas over a beer sometime, just a thought.
