I am Brewing for Krafty Draft Brew Pub

8 posts in this topic

After 3 years of all grain home brewing, I will be brewing my first commercial beer. Krafty Draft Brew Pub in Lexington, SC just recently got their license to brew in house. They have brewed about 5 beers now. They tried my Mocha Porter and loved it. They asked me to brew it for them. I will be Brewing on Friday the 17th. It will go on tap about a month later. Pretty excited about it. I never really wanted to do this for a living or anything, but I will enjoy watching a lot of new people drink my beer. If anyone is in the area, you should check this place out. 105 taps and 2 or 3 of them are usually in house brewed beers.

Congrats.

Someone should start a home brew thread in here and give us novices a heads up on the best way to start brewing your own beers at home.

I don't call myself an expert or anything, but if you have any specific questions or anything feel free to ask. Only advice I can give off the jump is, The Devil is in the Details, don't skip steps and don't ever assume something is not that important. Be very meticulous about everything, especially sanitation. I have brewed 24, 10 gallon batches of beer over the last 3 years. I have entered 5 competitions and won 4 ribbons, 2 first place, and a second and a third place.  The guy who taught me was a 3 time 3rd place Brew Master of the year in North and South Carolina. I brew on his system now. He retired and sold it all to me. I love the comradery of Craft Beer and Home Brewing. Something about it brings people together of all different cultures and backgrounds. It's a brotherhood of alcohol, and I can't think of anything much better. Haha

Dude glad I ventured back into this dead forum. My wife and I live in Columbia SC and pretty much hit up the local craft beer scene regularly on the weekends. We were just at Old Mill this past Saturday...had I seen this thread last week we would have stopped in to Krafty Draft.

We will definitely stop by soon.

Cool. Sorry it took so long to reply. Haven't logged in, in a while. The beer sold out in less that 24 hours. We blew the first 5 gallon keg in 2.5 hours. Rest was gone early the next day. I am brewing there again on the 23rd. I am brewing a Grapefruit IPA. It will be ready early June. I will keep you posted as to when it will be ready.

Good deal man. Let me know when it will be on...my wife and I would love to make a trip to give it a try and talk Panthers football with you.

The anticipated tap date for my Grapefruit IPA is Thursday June 8th at 730pm. I will be checking on it almost daily for the next week. If something changes I will let you know.
