I can help out with this. Just wait until the airlock stops bubbling.Wilson Brewing Company said:As for the 'how can I be sure they are safe' comment. I think you mean in regards to exploding bottles?
Looking like mid - end of March at the moment. Still drop in for a beer and a look though!! Hit me up when you're heading down.The Judge said:Still on track for this date Matty? I'm heading down to Albany end of Feb.
Hi WitWonder!WitWonder said:Matty, great thread and thanks for sharing. How are you planning to promote the brewery (budget)? Also, are you just selling at the door or are you trying to get taps elsewhere and supply kegs - I'm thinking this is harder than it sounds? I assume you've worked out how much you need to sell / month and worked that back to number of customers avg dollar spend etc to break even etc. Many businesses go under (your wife sounds like she'd know) because they are undercapitlised. Make sure you can tap your investors on the shoulder for more working capital should you need it. Have you applied for any grants from local government/council (no idea if there's any available, just a thought for a tourist venture).
Totally agree BD!! You guys are awesome!!Blind Dog said:It's a little late, and I may or may not have had a few beers and be currently sipping on an 18 year old ardbeg (that's the Whisky not the Swedish babysitter), but it's one of the reasons I love ahb and all who sail in her. Over on the US sites you'd had a bunch of idiots, with sweet FA experience, telling you how you're bound to fail. Here you just have a bunch of guys and gals wanting you to succeed, wanting to visit, offering advice that may or may not be relevant but is offered in the hope it helps. Warms the cockles.
Back to the ardbeg (still the Whisky)
And best of luck. If I'm ever over that way I'm dropping in and expecting the ahb discount!
Thanks Tahoose! You are correct. We managed to claim a heap of our equipment purchases for last year.Tahoose said:Not sure on what the legislation was but there was a change in grants for small businesses last year. The long and short is that each purchase under 20k could be claimed individually and you could get a portion of that back.
Hope it helps.
