I saw your post in another section about buying a new kettle. I was wondering if you were upsizing a bit.

I need to start doing only 10 gallon batches and the kettles I have are not what I like so I upgraded to a 15 gallon Blichmann I may also need a 20 gallon boil kettle but I'll see how this goes.

This was very inspiring reading.
I hope you do well.
I think I need to make my Raspberry Wheat now that I'm all amped up

Thanks everyone, you've all been a great support to this endeavor. I'll let you know when I have my first $100 in sales day.

Got my first commercial account. A Cafe across the street has ordered 2 cases of my Raspberry Wheat to see how it goes. At first he was reluctant to pay what I was asking but reconsidered it since he knows he'll still make a good profit. I did agree to print a special label with the Cafe's logo on it but it will still say it was brewed and bottled by Chappell Brewery.
I'll keep you all posted on how it goes.
They may be baby steps, but they're still steps.
