Hope you caught our Next Wave! We introduced our Ufer Oktoberfest Lager September 1. The nice back story is Ufer came out of my kitchen with a home brew batch. Of course my final product was better, much better, than the home brew batch out of my kitchen. So for the aspiring brewers out there making a great home brew, yes you can scale up a home brew to a commercial batch. They only caveat being get feedback from many people- from home brew judges, a chef, wife, good friends, consumers at your tasting room (you don't have a tasting room?), or even a master brewer or two.
