Really interesting thread. I am curious about what you do for ingredients. Do you just buy bulk at your local brew store and reuse the yeast?

The Boston Red is what's being carried by the Cafe across the street. We just changed the name to make it a private label for them. It's called "California Red Ale".

I buy bulk ingredients but I don't have a LHBS store around here. With my license I get a good deal even with shipping.
I'm not reusing yeast yet because I'm still trying different brews with different yeasts. Soon I'll have a few recipes that I'll use consistently and then I'll just reuse the yeast.

Decided to organize the fermentation room. Here's what I did:

How big are your batches and how many times a week do you brew. I see you are using pails for fermenters. Have you tried anything else? I am trying to decide what I am going to use for fermenting and tax determination. I will be brewing about 3 barrels in a day with two batches. I bought 4 55 gallon drums so I can kinda double up and save a bit of time.
