Hey everybody. Great to see this thread is still alive and kicking. I've got a friend in the neighborhood that has just taken up home brewing and I'm having fun getting back to roots by helping him out with 5 gal partial mash batches. He's already telling me that his system is too small, "do I need a pump?" etc. Yes and yes. Good times and always makes me want to brew.

Cheers!

Quick questions for you. Did the TTB or local authority make you get six inch concrete slabs below your nano sized fermenters? What size floor drains did they make you put in? Thanks for the kick butt thread.

Uh - no. The TTB doesn't do anything like that. They want your paperwork in order so that you pay taxes. That's about it. There's a section for disclosure of waste water that needs to be filled in, but the TTB doesn't really inspect anything other than forms.

Kevin,
I have been following your progress for the last few years since you were/are one of the original nanobreweries. What does the future hold for Healdsburg? Any plans to expand or are you pretty happy with where you are at? Cheers!!

Hey there. Cheers! Yup, I've got some plans for the brewery, but for the moment they're on the back burner because I'm busy with my other business. In the meantime, I'm focusing the brewery pn just making exceptional beer. Definitely have plans, though...

I'm interested too about the heating. I'm in the process of starting up and I am just curious as to what you're using. I'm doing the 3 barrel set up from stout tanks and needed a heating source. Thanks for sharing too, this has been an inspiration for me.
