  1. Wondering how practical the deposit might be as that just puts additional burden on the staff during busy hours. I'd probably go to cheaper options with a special or mug club to entice the buying of mugs.
  2. My 2 cents: Would DME be challenged as non-whiskey? Probably not as it's wort from grain. From Briess's website - " malt extracts are produced in a 500-bbl state-of-the-art brewhouse " I would ask myself what's the benefit of using DME? If I want to avoid the upfront cost of the mashing equipment, I would knock on the doors of local breweries to see if I can strike a deal for lautered wort. Gives me more control over ingredients & better marketing opportunities. On the "brewery" being a ferment-only facility - I've seen also Granite City doing this producing drinkable beer.
  3. Thanks! Looks like I over reacted. I did some more digging and the link is valid. RTFM issue as the TTB explicitly talks about it...
  4. Like an idiot, I clicked on the link & it was showing an expired password. I went ahead and changed it and then it dawned on me that it looks funny & started to look closer. The fishers now have my password & I'm in the process of changing all my password (sigh) Please be aware

  6. I'm checking to see if I understand this correctly: Let's say, I want my product to be on the shelves at state minimum price at $39.99. That means the acquisition price needs to be around $259.60 / case of 12 or $21.63. If I sell from my tasting room, I could charge the same price as the liquor store and make $18.36 more?
  7. Hi guys! I'm getting ready to take the plunge to start and am looking for a couple of like minds. PM me if you're interested
  8. Check with the guys from stilldragon. While it's not on their website on the US, they have it available (EU) and can probably get you one
  9. Hey HedgeBird, I've seen them so far only from Kothe. Can you share the manufacturer? Does anyone know if there's someone in the US making a similar style mash tun?
