Looks great, looking forward to watching the progress...
and make sure they spill a little on themselves. Beer gun for now but I doubt I'll get any 18 yr olds in bikinis to help.

That is cool... 4 days at home and I am ready to bounce. I have a friend that was looking to start a brewpub (he is a professional chef) and approached me a few times. Problem is again, Id be home all the time and take a 50% pay cut.

Plus, what the hell do I know about brewing beer?

You mean I need to know how to brew beer??? Oh crap, now what?
I'm making sure to try and keep it so that if everything fell through tomorrow it wouldn't change a thing. I'd just have a really cool man-cave.

This is epic. Three 5 gallon kegs a month is nothing. Why must you tempt me so! I can nearly brew that in my current system in a single session. I think you might be my new hero.

It's one thing to brew it, another to sell it. I'm hoping the pizza place across the street will want in on the action as well. Then I'd really need to step up the brewing. Plus if you buy bulk ingredients then profit goes up also. ~Fifty twelve oz bottles from a 5 gallon keg at around $2.50/bottle is $125. Let's say $200/month for rent for the space, .20/gallon state excise tax, $30 in ingredients and $50, or so, in misc. ~$25 in bottles/keg + $30 in ingredients and $1 in excise tax puts us at $56/keg. Haven't figured out all the expenses yet with regard to state and feds but it's about $1.72/gallon federal excise tax and .05/bottle. $8.60/keg fed tax. Just some numbers but lets say this is it. If I sold 1 kegs worth/week I'd make around $9/week. That's at only 5 gallons/week.
So I suppose there's profit in one keg.

No way. Not until it hits $10.
