Many love beer. If you know how to make beer, you may want to start a beer brewing company.

Money and Space

First thing required, is of course, the space where your brewery will be situated. It should be on a dry place, with the constant temperature, for the large scale changes can spoil the taste and quality of beer. If by any chance, you own spacey and dry cellar, this would be an excellent place for your new dream factory. With a nearly constant temperature, humidity and light, you can plan on whether to install heating system or not. In addition, for being in house you already own, the money you would usually spend on rent can be invested in a better way; for buying more quality equipment, for example.

On the other hand, if you live in an apartment or a flat, consider taking on hire medium sized hall. Higher costs of rent can be avoided by taking it for half of a year, with the possibility to pay in installments. Although this kind of payment can require a significant amount of money at the start, it will pay off in a several months. Also, when it comes to equipment, if you can afford it, buy the best available at the market. If not, there are a lot of second-hand sales to go through, and in addition, you may get a word of advice from the people selling it.

Brand

Don’t expect to be worldwide known brewery during the night. One of the most important things in this kind of job is tradition. All of the large manufacturers have tradition that goes back for several centuries. In order to be successful, you need to find a market, and there is no better place to start than your favorite pub or a bar. Ask the owner if he is willing to sell a few caskets on a promotional night. In return, you may provide him with low price, or even giving him a smaller amount for free, depending on the quality of your beer. Also, the package of your beer should be recognizable and as simpler as possible.

The beer bottle itself should be made out of glass, for it preserves taste better than any other material. In addition, it can be easily obtained, even grinded and recycled for repeated usage. As for the brand, don’t spare money to trademark everything. Literally, on whatever you can, put a trademark. Maybe not immediately, but in a beer brewing niche sooner or later having a protected design to which you can turn to, is beneficial. Also, by seeing trademark sign, your brand will have stronger impact on the consumers, for you will be seen as a serious factory immediately. Be aware though, that any downfall or drop in quality can harm your image, so try to judge when is the right time to protect your brand. We recommend that first build up your quality, and then seal it with the trademark.

So, with everything said taken into consideration, careful planning is required. Mingle among people which are in this type of business for a longer period, and ask for an advice. General image about them is that they are open to cooperation, and who knows, maybe you will find a future partner or a coworker?

Feng Shui Tips for a Perfect Bedroom

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese interior design method in achieving energy flow, peace and harmony by the arrangement of furniture in your living space.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese interior design technique. The main goal of this technique is achieving harmony and peace of mind by arranging furniture items in your living space so that they ensure the free energy flow. As a consequence (or benefit), people inhabiting that particular space will be charged with the positive energy that has been produced by and reached through the Feng Shui technique. By applying this technique, you are going to achieve a balance and calm in your bedroom. When reaching that state, you will be able to function without stress (or at least under less stress) and your sexual life will be improved, too.

Feng Shui is an interior design for the free flow of energy.

According to this technique, the bedroom needs to be filled with fresh air as much as possible. To make that possible, you should get rid of unnecessary things from your bedroom. Feng Shui generally recommends lessening the amount of things and items in your home. If there are a lot of things, energy will be wasted on them and your space is going to be inefficient in terms of energy. To ensure that the air flows freely through your bedroom, you should buy or get thin, relaxing curtains.

Also, the window(s) of your bedroom should be opened as much as possible, even in winter. Apart from that, do not go for large carpets in the bedroom. They accumulate negative energy and dirt, which then affects the energy balance of the whole bedroom and people sleeping in it. Instead of thick carpets, ordinary or shaggy rugs could serve as a fine alternative. They are easily cleaned and removed, more importantly, and they do not stop the air flow in the bedroom.

Appliance and Gadget-Free Bedroom

To make your bedroom completely fengshuish, you should leave all the appliances and gadgets in another part of your home. TV sets and mobiles emit radiation which affects the positive energy reached through the free air flow in the bedroom. It is not also radiation that harms the surrounding space, but also the role of technical devices in the bedroom. If you want to practice Feng Shui, it means that you need to devote yourself completely to it. Also, if there is another person with you in the bedroom, the more newly created positive energy you share, the more you will feel. Complete commitment to your partner and the energy field of the bedroom should be mutually exclusive with appliances and gadgets. However, music can actually enrich the sensation, so a CD player is allowed.

Colors in Feng Shui bedroom

This technique promotes only human skin-like colors for the bedroom. These colors have a soothing effect on human eye and brain, as well. Applying these colors will only add to overall tranquility of the room and it will also amount to the general energy level in the room. Shades of these colors can be used in different parts of the bedroom. For instance, if the wall is beige, the rug can be light brown. Through different colors, you can make a real visual palette that could symbolize the color variety and beauty of various peoples and races in the world.
