It has moved out of the beer market and into the production of "clear malt" for other companies to use for those freaky, foo-foo drinks you are seeing around. Easier money basically.

Ahh, I see. When did it move away from beer?

I just read parts 1-4. What a journey! Myself and a bunch of friends out here had pipe dreams of opening our own micro brewery back in the early 90's. I always felt like I missed a great opportunity. Glad to hear about someone who actually did it!

Apparently I need to move to NM where the pastors drink in the morning, and run breweries!

Thanks BP, that is a great story, I really do appreciate you taking the time to put it down in words for all of dreamers out here. Thanks again!

I just reread this and it makes it sound like a drunkfest, which I guess it was but I think we did work a bit too!

Reminds me of grad school. That, and my current job after a GRABASS luncheon.

just read this now - really interesting story. like a lot of things, it makes a great hobby but i bet it's really tough to do as a business. i'm surprised you can look a homebrew MLT in the eye after mashing 2000 lbs of grain in a batch!

Cleaning out 50 pounds of grains really seems like nothing after shoveling 2000 pounds into 55 gallon drums!
