Firming up start-up costs

After talking to several brewers, industry specialists, and insiders, the numbers for starting this business are beginning to settle down. I have several pages of tables and spreadsheets attempting to track all expenses and foreseen capitol investments. Right now with all of those various lines added up, it look like $750,000 is the magic number for what I am trying to do. This gets a fully operating brewery and 1 year of operating cash, with a little breathing space for unforeseen issues.

There is still a lot of work to be done to the business plan around the market and operation of the business. I continue to focus on that daily, but it is nice to have a number to talk about when asked.
