Did you know that many new brew-pubs and Micro-breweries are started by home brewers. We recommend you start small. Develop the styles and taste that are unique to your business plan. Maybe you heard the story about a famous man that decided to open a brewery. His start up brewery was big. He spent millions buying equipment and setting up his brewery. He bought the best fermenters, mash tuns and everything needed to open a brewery. The problem was the world didn’t know about his beer or taste profile. Developing flavors and a distribution system take time. Needless to say, he didn't make it. Start small, save your money for advertising, distribution, style development and working capital. It is too easy to spend all your capital on nice equipment. As the public learns about you they will anticipate the new taste. Buy the large equipment with the profits.
