    Calculating PPM of licorice root in gin formula?

    This is what ended up being what they needed to pass my formula for Gin. Thanks for your help in getting me here... Licorice root is macerated in corn spirit and 24 grams of hydrated licorice root is added to the botanical basket. After distillation, licorice root is weighed and 23.5 grams of licorice root remain. .5 grams of licorice root is consumed, leaving .01% licorice root in product, 100PPM licorice root.
  3. In Canada, the right to own a distillery is tied to the address of the aforementioned distillery. It would be strictly against the rules to set up a still elsewhere. Not to mention, distilling other people mashes/washes would be very problematic. This would not be allowed in our jurisdiction.
  4. Its not just a state by state issue. To actually distill you would need a federal permit in addition to whatever the state would require. Shot answer is no, its not possible to do such a thing legally speaking.
  5. Looking for labeling machine and a few pieces to upgrade small craft distillery operation. Using a manual Race Labeler now, although a great piece of equipment, we need an automatic that will label front/back. Contact Casey Jones Distillery peg@caseyjonesdistillery.com

    Is it possible to get a permit for a festival site distillery ?

    State by State issue. It is possible in some States, to have an off site tasting set up. In Arkansas a DSP Permit holder must notify the State ABC 14 days prior of intention to do this.

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    Any of y'all ever set product sit to try and have byproducts come out of solution and filter then? We have filtered before bottle and still had some kind of blue tinted particulate come out of solution months or days down the line.

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    Any suggestions on where to buy the housing and filter? I was planning on using a flowjet for the pump. Sounds like a great idea!!

  15. 11? The heck with the barrel how about a bottle! Sounds awesome. Just out of curiosity what size barrel? If I were closer I might grab a couple from you.
  16. I'm thinking about organizing a festival sometime in the ( hopefully not so distant ) future that would feature an on grounds still , that would be used to distill the already fermented batches of whatever liquor attendees would choose to bring to the festival grounds . Is it possible to do such a thing legally speaking ? Also has anyone here done something like this and/or heard of it being done ?
  17. Hi Slick and Nab, Thanks for the responses. Yes, after some discussion with a local lab, it is likely colloidal instability, not protein precipitation. We are getting it tested now to identify the exact issue. The final filter is 1um nominal, which could also be part of the issue. We monitor filter pressure pre bottling and it doesn't look like it's clogging/slowing down in any way, but it might be worth investing in some absolutes for this process. I will check out the Pall filters once we hear back from the lab. We also have Scott Labs in town, who work with the lab company (ETS), so maybe they might also have a solution. This product has definitely given us the most headache of all that we make. All part of the fun I guess! Another distillery in town owns a Rosedale Products basket filter, with a 6um basket, so we might add that to the process to see if we can't do a little better job lautering the solids away after our botanical soak. I'll try to respond to the thread once we resolve the issue to share our results. Cheers, Josh

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    connect a 10" cartridge filter housing between the pump and holding tank on the filler. Put a sub micron filter in and you're done.

    Chicago Steam Boiler Installation Recomendations

    You can't go wrong with a Rite Boiler. They have units in operation that were built back in the 1950s. They are a really good Boiler. I have sold a bunch of them and my customers have never had one complaint or problem with any of them. I wish I knew an installer up there but I don't.

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    It's not ideal but it works: check out buon vino super jet. To be on the safe side, you'd want to use your own pneumatic pump.

    And if you're not married to the Rite boiler, you can get a smaller foot print, more out put, better quality steam and slower start up time with a Miura! (sorry and to plug)

    Chicago Steam Boiler Installation Recomendations

    I have a team based out of southern WI that did all our advanced work. We have organic capable facility (stainless steam lines) with multiple stills as well as cookers in multiple rooms, and we are really happy with our system's form and function. They also have a great insulation guy they referred us to. I know a team out of Janesville is not exactly Chicago but they do unbelievable work and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They do projects from our distillery, to other breweries large and small, municipal jobs, auto plants, and even humongous food plants so they have experience for every size and scope. Degarmo Plumbing and Piping. They even custom fabbed us working decks around our big tanks and small tanks, as well as a 100 degree drop heat exchanger that is possibly the most beautiful piece of equipment in the building!
