I just brewed an IPA (Zombie Dust Clone) but with my own twist. It has 8oz of Citra and 1oz of Cascade. Smells awesome, bubbling away in the refer now, should be ready to keg in about a week and a half. Still not all the way to AG but will be soon. I call it Biker Dust

Edit: This was for a 6gal batch

These Nelson Savin hops are potent. Very strong aroma. Looking forward to tasting this batch and comparing it with the Zyphos batch.

As I started reading this thread and saw all the people who have read it say the same thing over and over about your journey , and now here at the end of my reading I see exactly why they said that this was inspiring . As we brew as weekend warriors and hold down full time jobs, and dream about owning our very own brewery's ,and now you have given insight on how you can accomplish this with hard work and determination . Thanks

Thank you for taking the time to read it. My intent is/was to show that it can be done without investing a lot of money.
I wish you good luck should you take the plunge.

I read through your thread and was wondering if you still have a full time job or does you nano brewery make enough to pay the bills?

I still work full time. I look at the nanobrewery as a long term investment and something to either fall back on should I lose my job or a retirement income producer. I'm hoping this summer to start breaking even but like I said it's more of a long term investment.

Congrats on getting this up and running. Sorry if this is a repeat, but what are your retail prices?

Do you discuss retail prices with your wholesale customers or let them handle that?

I've read roughly 3X markup on bars (you sell for $2, they sell for $6) and up to 33% margin (your selling price / 0.67) for beer stores, grocery, convenience stores etc.

The only retail I have going at this moment is 22oz bombers at a grocery store. They sell for $5.95/bottle. That's about the 33% margin you mentioned.
