    Agave

    Update: We've run a few tests with meh results so far. We are actually have no problem with the ferment but not enamored with the final product (so far). For the ferment, we are running small 20G test batches using 100% Blue Agave from BSG. We quasi closed ferment (not airtight) with an aquarium heater to keep the wash right at 88-90F and dose in nutrients at pitch and around 24 hours. The first batch we tried a mix of SaftTeq Blue Tequila yeast and a C-70 yeast and monitored the PH daily to keep around 5.0. Ferment was steady and finished in about 5 days Starting SG around 1.06. We double distilled with a small potstill set up and it Came out pretty boring and neutral without much character and the cuts did seems to bleed together more than I'd like. Not sure we will keep the distillate or maybe blend and barrel. Tried a second batch which I haven't made the cuts yet. Used same basic protocol but used only the SafTeq Blue yeast. No real difference on ferment. If you keep it right 90F and 5.0 it seems to move along consistently and finish nicely. Double distilled, this time we used our plated test still and ran a little reflux for fores and heads and then cut the reflux and ran it reallllllly slow with empty plates. Haven't made the cuts yet but seems boring again. I feel pretty confident we have the ferment protocols down but just not getting the flavor we want. 'm not sure if its the Agave we are using but we don't get nearly the big tequila flavor we were hoping for. Will report back as we keep trying. Anyone have any alternative suggestions for a yeast or sourcing for agave?

    BIB Bag In Box Supplier

    Anyone know of a BIB bag in box supplier? I can get my box guy to build the boxes, but am having problems finding a bag supplier, maybe someone has a contact that does both already? BIBs for soda guns is what I am looking for exactly. Thanks!

  10. I presume you mean the holes in the front plate, the holes are slightly smaller than the grain to prevent whole grains passing. I guess with corn the holes could be much larger than for rye.

    Possible Mash Infection, Need Help

    Denver Distiller - Thanks. Get your points related to the fact that this NOT beer making with a boil. But going back to read his mash protocol, my thought was that he was depleted of 02 and getting a stuck lag phase. Or he could pitch at a higher rate? Your point I think here is that he needs to get to fermentation ASAP... and so a shorter lag phase would be preferable. Makes sense. I know that I have had some bourbon mash fermentation problems with butryc acid hits that seemed to be remedied with a shot of O2 in the mash before the pitch. But I also upped my pitching rate at the same time.... breaking my rule to control change variables given the interest to prevent having to discard another bad mash run.

    Stupid label question

    Tampers, Tamper Strips, Tamper Seals are all common names for them. We use a slightly different adhesive for these that has a higher initial tack response so that they don't peel up. Its not uncommon to even see these foiled and embossed. We print a ton of these everyday, let us know if you would like a sample pack.

    Get your Federal Permit? How long did it take?

    30 Days We couldn't be happier with the process. Adding a brewery permit to that so we can do a small amount of beer for the tasting room only took another 30 days. We are fully permitted on the federal side. We assumed it would take longer so we started that process before construction even began. Now we have a DSP and are still building. I can't say enough good things about the consultant we hired to do this for us. Jerry Wages jrwages@hotmail.com This process with Jerry was completely painless.

    Blue tint

    Thank you everyone for your responses. It was actually a mistake that we made here at ground level. We were using a tube that was not rated to handle 190 proof alcohol. We were getting traces of the rubber in the alcohol and that was leaving the blue tint. Make sure everything you're using is rated for high proof alcohols.. Thank you for your help!!

    Blue tint

    Copper sulfate? Some industrial producers will add that to spirits to make up for not using good clean copper stills. It starts out blue.

    6-Pack Boxes / Partitions

    Have you checked with your bottle manufacturer to see if they will ship in six packs? Our bottle manufacturer custom prints our boxes in six or twelve packs. There might be a minimum order, but you won't have to pay for extra boxes. They show up with logos ready to go. We use one upc code as a default on the boxes and have stickers to cover with other product upc codes based on what goes in them.

    Filtration During Barrel Harvest

    We use a flojet when pumping out of barrels. keep the hose off the bottom and you should be alright. (agreeing with PeteB). Alternatively, roll the barrel and dump it through screens (we do this with a funnel that has a mesh screen in it)
