I think Shane was making the point that you don't need it.

Still going to check my old sofa!!

Yep, you'll need mains water (easy enough) but MAINS SEWER is the big one.

You will need a few pigs.
1. They love spent grain.
2. Pork Scratchings.

You'd need to phone your local Revenue office and ask.

When you do will you post the details back up here? :)

As we all know Revenue and in particular the Alcohol department are a bit anal when it comes to giving out information. Its as if the want to discourage new start ups.

Sureley there must be a government department that tries to encourage initiatives/wealth creators/exportors.

So why don't we as the major representatives of "home brewers who wish to expand" contact Enterprise Ireland or whoever (small buisness scheme?) and get them to build an information bridge into Reveunue (Dept C2H5OH)

Any one fancy taking this on?

They're actually not anal about giving it out. Typically they don't know, and if they do know, no-one else knows they know.

So it's only a case of getting someone on the phone who knows, and in Cork they will have plenty of experience.

Sorry to hi-jack slightly, but, if the duty on a pint is about 0.50, and the ingredients going into said pint make the total about 0.55 (probably less) - why do I pay roughly ten times that amount to get one in the pub?

A 50-litre (88 pint) keg of good beer costs about 160 wholesale, with stout being a bit less. That's 1.82 a pint. Publican sells it for 4.06+VAT retail (i.e. 5), leaving them with a gross margin of 2.24.

Out of that there could be a load of things to be paid, including high rent and high rates. Then again they might not be high. If the question you're really asking is "is there price gouging going on" then answer is it depends. In some cases yes, no in others. Only a proper consumer organisation could answer that in general terms... where have that new crowd gone?
