    Well my family came to the US in the 1880's(ish) and promptly settled in Wisconsin and started a brewery. In 1902, my Great, Great, Great Grandfather decided to close the brewery, prompting five generations of milking cows.

    Dad sold off his dairy cows last winter. I was out banging around in the shed at his place and saw the old milker buckets from before he switched over to a pipeline in the late 90s. Figured there had to be a good use for a few 7-10 gallon gasket sealed stainless containers...so here I am.

    Welcome. Many home brewers, and a few pros, started out with repurposed dairy equipment. Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada was one of them. Good luck in your endeavors.

    Where is BFE? I bet it's not all that far from me, and maybe I'm BFE'er. :)

    If I'm not mistaken, it's Bumf**k, Egypt. I'm from a similar place in Kentucky.

    I guess the UP is about as close to BFE as it gets :) Just had to throw that in Yooper.

    BFE is otherwise known as Cazenovia, a thriving metropolis of just over 300 in rural Richland County.

    We lived in Copperopolis, California for 18 years before moving here in 2002. Population 155 when we moved there. When we left it was still under 200. I know BFE well :)

    I live in Olathe, KS (KC) now... but I grew up in, and still brew back in BFE, Iowa. Great place for making and drinking many a beer!
