No new additions yet. Right now what I need to do is organize and get shelving built for grain storage and make room for more fermenters. I think the next step is a bigger brewery.

I have not logged on in quite a while. It's great to see that good things are happening. Good luck with the expansion.

Sorry for the OT thread hijack!

Heh, there is another fellow on here from Drain as well. Go figure. We just moved to town a few years back. I haven't seen the 3 story built into the mt. though, that sounds pretty cool. What road is it out on?

Brother, I was 5 (now 33) It used to have a dumbwaiter/ elevator that ran thru it, but heard they replaced it w/ a spiral staircase. Ask around, I/m sure it's still there!!! The top floor is all master suite, the middle is living, kitchen (they share a chimney) with huge bay windows across the front, the bottom is in a U w/ a built in greenhouse/ mudroom/ garden room. Huge hippy hot tub on the ground floor Used to have indoor composting toilets, no septic, might have updated. For a 5 yr old, the place was heaven! Good memories, good times...

Thank you all for your encouraging words. It hasn't been without its pitfalls, that's for sure. As it has grown I've had to adjust my techniques in brewing which has had its consequences. When you depend on each 10 gallon batch it's a set back to have it ruined by not paying attention during transitions. Scorching was an issue for me which ruined a batch by imparting the burnt flavor into the brew. I've resolved that issue and have continued to learn a lot about my brewing methods.
This is a doable thing for anyone willing to put in the time and effort required.
Call it a labor of love but when total strangers tell you how good your beer is and are willing to put down their hard earned cash to take some home, it's a mighty good feeling.
Today I'm serving at a fund raiser so I hope to get more feed back from people.
I'll keep you all posted.

This is an important thing. People do not separate themselves from their money very easily and when you start a business you are no longer brewing for yourself. Good luck!

I have been following this thread closely as this is almost exactly what I want to do.
