Yeah I think that's B.S. I have seen people post on that site that weren't even in the business yet, or were looking for investors to open a brewery.

If your brave you can go on Alibaba.com and check out some of the Chinese factories that are making brewing equipment. Most of them will respond pretty quickly with price quotes. Prices can be pretty cheap and the quality looks decent.

It took me 3 or 4 times to get a registration to go through with probrewer, I ended up emailing the Admin, Tom, and he got me set up. From what he told me the filters on the site are really strong, so its common for things to not go through. Email him and be patient, it took me about a week of trying in earnest to get a login.

On another note, your system still looks great. Keep it up!

Certainly with all those tools and TIG welder you could find a way to make your own. There is a thread by Yuri Rage in which he makes his own DIY stainless conicals. Here's the link http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/diy-...rmenter-14855/

If the link doesn't work then look on the DIY projects. Or search for the DIY conicals.

Cheers!


BTW nice brewery!

I emailed them also but no cigar...anyway....

I have seen Yuri's fermenter, very nice. As my goal is to go commercial, I'm concerned about the pressure testing and calibration of a home made conical. I know it could be done but I'm wondering if my time could be better spent in other areas.. From what I have found so far though looks like I may need to get the regulations and have a go..

Dude... your brewery... is AWESOME!!!

Only one question so far after watching your tour video. I know it's none of my business, but how did you obtain/afford all that awesome stuff?

Excellent work so far! Prost!
