  1. Hi, How often should you change the water in the jacket of a bain-marie still? Also, is it best using distilled water or any water would do? The jacket is in stainless if it matters. Thanks in advance.

    changing water in bain-marie still

    I thought you had more fine tuning control with water than you have with oil. Why did you choose to use oil instead of water? what are the pros? Thanks,

    oak cube ratio

    Hi, I am experimenting with oak cube and would like to know what would be the best ratio (grams per liter). I think I over oaked my first batch and would like to avoid ruining my subsequent batch. I'm using this if it matters: http://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/Oak_Cubes_French_Medium_Toast_3_5_oz_p/oak-cubes-french-medium.htm Thanks in advance.

  7. Hi, Me and my brother want to start out a distillery in Quebec in a somewhat near future. I just got back from the Kothe training in Chicago last weekend, pretty informative and a well worth 3 days of training . As the sayin goes, you need to learn before to try to sell cheers!
