Thanks for the link. Looks like kegs are hard to find and can get expensive. OY!

Thanks. I was looking at their site and had to laugh when I read this " Trust us, we will give you more satisfaction than you expected ".

I also found this site http://www.highgravitybrew.com/Produ...idproduct=2823 $10 shipping, not bad.

that seems like a fair price . I would talk with them about a discount on multiple kegs as I expect you need more than one

Sir, you are indeed living the dream. My first post goes into your thread! I was a home brewer from 1989-1994. I'm thinking about taking up the hobby again. I nearly went into the business professionally, but I could not make the numbers work. I still hope to to some day and have designs on a couple of tourist towns up in the GA or NC mountains. I live in suburban Atlanta and the laws here are ridiculous for brewing. The western states are so much friendlier. The biggest problem here is the three tier system is alive and well. I don't see it ever changing because some politician may lose out on some slush money. The other problem is water...we have a limited amount. The last time I checked brewpubs were limited to 5000 bbls/yr. I was never interested in a brewpub though since there is food involved.

Just for future growth reference, I have a couple of things you may find useful:
There used to be a brewery manufacturer by the name of Cross in Fresno who sold converted/re-conditioned fermenters and brew houses. I visited him to see what he had and he had a great idea for a cold room. He had a refrigerated cargo container that was just perfect. The temp outside that day was 107 and just walking inside that container was amazing. It didn't even have the refer unit connected, but the insulation made a huge difference. I found a place here in GA that sold those containers used with the cooling unit for a few thousand $. That was nearly 20-yrs ago, but probably still cheaper than a custom built walk-in unit. You can chill a lot of beer in one of those.

If someone does make you pour a concrete slab, you can always treat it with the epoxy garage floor paint available at places like Home Depot. That stuff would be perfect for a brewery floor or the floor of your store.

I was in Yosemite back in July and drove right through Mariposa. Maybe next time I'll be able to stop by for a pint or two. But in the meantime, it is legal to ship wine to GA, so I think beer is also probably legal. I'm going to be the first to step and and say I'll by a sixer from you if you are bottling and have a PayPal account.

Good luck and keep this thread updated!

have you looked at plastic kegs?? Plastic Kegs of America I know some smaller breweries using these because of the cheaper cost. We have a few, they are not the same height as stainless kegs so if you have a mixture they are a pain in the ass but if you use all plastic they are great.

I'll have to check into that. Never knew they were out there.
Checked out the new sstore and the cold room in it is about 8 X 20 with a 10 ft ceiling. Two A/C units, one at each end. It used to have floor drains in the main part of the store but they filled in the slope to level the floor for the next owners when the brewery went under. Still though, the store looks great and it'll just be my brother and I on the rent agreement which I like.
