Good news: The keg in the basement doesn't have a leak... my brain does (the gas-in hose wasn't connected properly).
In an unrelated turn of non-events, I've been working on creating a layout for the main brewery operation. I'm trying to make things as efficient and flowing --- (no pun intended) -- (um - who am I kidding? The pun was intended)--- efficient and flowing as possible. So, I've been creating scenarios in my head (and on paper) that follow a batch from start to finish... from water & grain to keg and ship. The only problem is, I don't have any idea at all what the space will look like. We're just not ready for that stage of the business yet... I'm going to put off the $500 LLC cost and paying rent for as long as possible before making the leap to being a legal operation.
I've found one place that seemed like it's be a good fit, but it's not zoned industrial... which means no manufacturing... which means no beer making.
So, until then--- I'm checking Craigslist.org every day! Wish us luck!
