    I'm new!

    Welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!
  4. Greetings everyone! I'm stoked to be a part of the forums. I'm just in the early stages of beginning my distilling journey. I've been in the craft beverage industry for a few years and going to be transitioning to opening my own space in the future. I've been lurking for months, reading and learning and thinking through ideas. Working on business plan and making plans to go to ADI next year and meet with people face to face. I have ideas of ways that I want to enter the market, what products I want to produce, and how to best invest my time and money. I'm keeping things underwraps until the lawyers get involved and trademark is established so apologies on the vague handle but I didn't want to jump the gun too soon but I also wanted to be a part of conversations, so this was my compromise. I look forward to interacting and contacting folks.

    Distillery Hoses

    Brewline has a chlorobutyl liner. Generally we recommend chlorobutyl for up to about 50% ABV, after which UPE (like on GlideTech Distillery) exhibits superior resistance over the long term. The other thing our customers like about Glidetech Distillery relative to Continental hoses is the "channels". Continental's hoses are flat are flat on the exterior, which lets liquids pool and gather on the ground if the hose is blocking the flow to your drain. Glidetech has ridges so liquids can flow past to your drain. And, of course, the smooth exterior cover that makes it easy to drag (hence the "glide" in GlideTech)

    I'm new!

    Hi Everyone - I’m new here so I wanted to quickly introduce myself. I live and work in NYC (in advertising), but spend a lot of time in the Catskill Mountains where I have the space to potentially pursue distilling in the future. I’m not ready to quit my day job just yet, but I’m joining the ADI community as a way to start exploring the world of craft distilling and see if it’s something that I want to seriously pursue down the road. I’ll be doing a lot of reading and listening at first, as many of the questions I want to ask have already been answered somewhere in the forum. It's clear that there's a wealth of knowledge and experience here. I appreciate your patience as I do venture into different topics within the forum, and look forward to interacting with many of you on this site, at a conference, or at your local distillery. —JS

    BOTTLES 750ml & 1 Liter $0.15/bottle

    Sent you a PM. Do you still have these?

    BOTTLES 750ml & 1 Liter $0.15/bottle

    Are you sure that is not listed backwards? If the 1 liter bottle is larger and heavier than the 750ml bottle (I would suspect), then I would expect 1) more cases of 750ml per pallet, and 2) 1 liter case to weigh more than 750 ml (12.69 versus 10.19 lbs).

    TTB stopped our production due to high proof

    Most of the difference has to do with temperature control, equilibration, and correction. This is especially true for the handheld units, which have no temperature control. The quartz oscillation tube measurement itself can be done to very high accuracy even with an inexpensive handheld unit. But you have to have the temperature fixed in the device and measured accurately, as well, and then calibrate the whole thing.

    Distillery Hoses

    Just scored another, albeit smaller, Yamada AODD for high proof transfer. About to pull the trigger on the glidetech. A bit painful at $20 / foot but Ive only heard great things about it.

    Oregon Oak barrels 30 gallon

    The important distinction is that MN oak, similar to Kentucky, MO, MI, and etc oak are all more or less the same species of tree just grown in different locations. Oregon Oak (quercus garryanna) is a different species with different properties. It has to be split and quartersawn like french oak, which reduces the yield per tree considerably and it also needs 3-5 years air drying to get a stave that's useable (compared to 6-18 months for a typical whiskey barrel). There also isn't very much oregon oak to be had, compared to the entire industries and forests devoted to white american oak. I've used oregon oak at a couple of different distilleries and it has some unique flavor contributions that are distinct from french oak. Whether that's worth an extra 400-600$ per barrel I think depends on how strong your marketing department is.

    Oregon Oak barrels 30 gallon

    $800 looks very expensive to me. I got MN oak 30 gallons in the mid $200 range. For that price I agree I'd probably go for french oak.

    What ever happened to iStill?

    Today we will be shipping another iStill 2000 to Japan. The unit has our new indirect heating system as well as Dynamic Cuts Management, for total control over cuts. It will be used for Japanese whisky production. Here is a picture of the i2000 sitting on its pallet. Ready for pick-up and crating. Regards, Odin.

    Control pannel for pot still

    First of all, you cannot pressurize the jacket for steam. Water cannot exceed 212F if the jacket is not pressurized, so if you are going to run water, proportional control is best and there is no reason to have a PID. If you are going to run cooking oil or glycol all of your elements should be on the PID or you take the chance on having a huge problem. Cooking oil can be heated to 350 F so cooking oil will give you a much faster heat up and run time than water. From Twalshact's description, I think that he thinks that you have elements in the wash and did not understand the fact that you have baine marie. Lastly, If you build the controller yourself you are not going to be able to get it passed your inspector, especially since you are in Canada. i am guessing that you are in Canada because of your voltage. We build electric heating systems for stills everyday and we have hundreds of them out there in operation.
