  2. Steam Boiler - Low Pressure - 324,000 btu

    where is it located? Thanks.
  3. COLA for different bottle sizes?

    You do not need a new cola if you change bottle size.
  4. Spent Grains after on-grain distillation

    The stillage is super high in protein. Thats why they sell WDG & DDG on the open market.
  5. spirit scales

    We went with IS or intrinsically safe, I’m not aware of explosion proof scales being available. IS standards for scales and load cells are appropriate for classified areas. We had the low voltage power come out to a non-classified area with seal offs, and then a standard AC adapter for power to the scale.
  6. T top corks

    Do you use a machine to automatically T-top cork the bottles? If so, which one? They seem to be hard to find.
  7. T top corks

  8. Sudden Drop in Vodka Proof/Slight Cloudiness

    Larry and crew at SD are good people.
  9. T top corks

    Assuming by your name that you are on the north side of the border. If so, give AOWilson a call; they've been good to work with.
  10. Can you provide the specs on this still? And is it just the still or other equipment? martin@reidsdistillery.com
  11. Yesterday
  12. T top corks

    Tapi is another, although it tough to recommend them at the moment they have been a total shit show the last 4 months or so.
  13. Sudden Drop in Vodka Proof/Slight Cloudiness

    Also - Sincere shoutout to StillDragon. Once we let them know our condenser was leaking they shipped a new one out immediately!
  14. Lab distillation of very high-solids liqueurs

    I had a call yesterday from a friend who was finding the opposite of what he expected after lab distillation. He makes absinthe. Normally with a spirit containing sugar a hydrometer will float higher and indicate a lower ABV because of the higher density of the sugar. Lab distillation removes this sugar-solids-obscuration and the hydrometer will show a higher ABV He measured the absinthe directly with a hydrometer and calculated the ABV Then did a lab distillation and got a lower reading. I am sure he did the distillation and calculations correctly. My feeling is the substances in absinthe that are causing obscuration have a lower density than ethanol. (oils?) Any thoughts?
  15. Tank aging of fruit/berry based Liqueurs

    I would be concerned with oxidation from the head space causing color/flavor changes with the fruit. You can fill the head space with CO2 or other gas to prevent this.
  16. Proofing Issues

    Air bubbles can also make the hydrometer float higher if they get attached to the bottom of the hydrometer, spin the hydrometer to shake them off.
  17. Tank aging of fruit/berry based Liqueurs

    Was the container sealed? Any sort of evaporation will throw off your flavor profile and make the flavors more concentrated.
  18. Tank aging of fruit/berry based Liqueurs

    I recall a presentation at an ADI conference in Louisville about 5 years ago. A researcher from Tuthilltown was giving great detail about "molecular clustering" of ethanol. Over a period of time the molecules attract to each other and form clumps that trigger a more mellow sensation on the tongue. That presentation was about ethanol only, maybe other flavour compounds clump as well.
  19. Subbing out production

    Good info thank you.
  20. Subbing out production

    I appreciate the resource and the info you provided. Im not sure which way I want to go. But, I've been eyeing your equipment 😉
  21. Subbing out production

    Rusty is a great guy and very trustworthy and honest. Custom distilling is what he mainly does. I sold him a full set of 300 gallon equipment 7 years ago then around 4 years ago I sold him a full set of 800 gallon equipment. Rusty has distilled for some of the reality TV shows and he would never give out or steal a recipe. I stake my reputation on the fact that Rusty will treat you right and honor any agreement that you make with him. Give him a call and go down and visit his distillery. He and I also offer a 1 on 1 distillery workshop for $300.00 per day. If you take the work shop and then buy at least $10,000.00 of equipment from me then I will reimburse you for the workshop. Also I offer a 1 on 1 workshop at a distillery in NJ which is much closer to you. This distiller runs one of my 100 gallon pro series stills and his spirits have won a lot of awards, however I'm not sure if he would be interested in Custom distilling. Chris's contact info is below. EMAIL lastshotdistillery@gmail.com PHONE (315) 554-8241
  22. Cooling Water set up feedback

    I agree with MG Thermal for crash cooling mash, a chiller is almost always the best way to go, and if you need a chiller Mike at MG Thermal is the best out there, in my opinion.
