I play the powerball when it gets large strictly for the entertainment of thinking about what I would buy, winning would just be a bonus...

So, before any equipment I think I would hire an employee whose sole purpose would be to clean my brewery and equipment for me.

I'd prolly let him(or her) drink on the job.

What would yours be?

Maybe open a homebrew store. And a brewery in back. My whole goal would be to make good beer, and then help others recreate it if they wanted.

I'd open a LHBS.

Buy a local brewpub and start putting better beer on tap.

Although someone to clean up is a good choice, I'm thinking a guy that can carry 50 lbs. sacks of malt on each shoulder all day would come in handy. With a few hundred million in winnings, I would start to measure in barrels instead of gallons.

My first beer related purchase would be a lot of beer because it would be party time if I won the lottery.

Seeing that the Powerball is over $500,000,000, I think I'd go ahead and purchase a profitable, functioning microbrewery.......and a Sabco Brewmagic system for home
Primary #1 - Midnight Ryeder (Midnight Wheat and Rye)
Primary #2 - Florida Weiss
Primary #3 - Kane-DOH APA (Honey Citra APA)
Secondary #1 - Downtown Flanders Brown (brewed August 2012)
Keg #1 - Raspberry Florida Weiss
Keg #2 - Cinnamon Raisin Cider
Keg #3 - NONE!
Bottled - NONE!

I'd buy one of those fancy digital thermometers and may be a bench capper. Man that would be sweet, I'm going to buy two tickets right now

Brewpub/BBQ joint. Those two just seem to go together really well.

Then I would hire someone who could run that place so I don't run it into the ground.
Suburban Farmhouse Brewery

Primary: Home Hops 15 IPA
Bottled: Huis Koyt, Summer In Sommelsdijk, Trekker Huis ( Tractor House) Saison
Up coming beers: Higgs Special with Homegrown hops
