Hey everyone. Well I've gone an taken the plunge - I converted from homebrewer to licensed and bonded Nanobrewer and I've got a 1 bbl garage called the Healdsburg Beer Company up here in Northern California. I'm going to be twittering my day @Healdsbrew if anyone wants to follow along. Making a 1 bbl batch of Healdsburg Blonde. 1.053 and 26.7 BU.

Thanks!

That's awesome. Was it as hard to get licensed as everyone makes it sound?

Actually - no. About a weekend of paperwork and a 45 day waiting period. There's more to it but that's the basics. Im happy to help anyone who's thinking of it if anyone has any questions. In my day job I'm a lawyer, and I've done licensing work before so the process wasn't as intimidating to go through.

How are you distributing? And I'm surprised the cordless drill made it through 60 lbs of malt! They must have better batteries than they used to!

I'm self distributing - couldn't make any money otherwise at this production size. Yeah - had to swap out the 18v half way through...

Alas - haven't really figured out the picture thing. If you can imagine a slightly oversized Brutus with 3 55g Blichmans on it, that's the rig. I've got a pic or two in my profile, I think, with my old kettles. Next time I'll have it all sorted for pics and whatnot.

Nanobrewery sounds awesome. Looking forward to hearing more about this. Would love to hear more about the process and see some pics.
