  1. Errr... So you're saying with the current interest it isn't profitable, and it won't be profitable unless a possible buyer can get considerably cheaper (or free) financing? Just askin'
  2. Already read content resurfacing

    UPDATE Once I used "Mark site read" function the problem went away...
  3. Hi, anyone else noticed that every time you go to "Unread Content" and read a few articles one article that you've already read shows up again? I read everything from the end of April 2017 but since a week or so I keep seeing postings from July and beginning of August again and again, just one or two each time Paul.
  4. Prepair for the FALLOUT!!!

    What nabtastic says. I'm new in this industry but I hardly have any debt, and the amount of bottles I have to sell each month to pay interest and recurring costs is sow low I can carry it in one go, and I'm not Hulk Hogan's healthy nephew. Keep costs low, even if it means making other products then you originally intended (in my case gin instead of whisky), design your business to be as efficiant as possible, do not try to out-compete cheap brands and make sure you have some other income if business starts slowly (which it probably does).
  5. Can we do something about the spammers?

    In that case the reports don't work, from the moment Foreshot posted the message above I've used the "Report post" button on every new piece of spam I found. Haven't counted them but I think at least five.
  6. glycerin

    Mouth feel. Especially important for neutral products, like vodka.
  7. Column Diameter and collection rate

    Not if you use more power... With more surface area you get better separation when using the same amount of power, or you get the same separation with more speed when using more power.
  8. Early Sales, Consistent Sales

    I'm roughly in the same situation, started selling in August, biggest individual sale 24 bottles. A lot of people have said this before on this forum: you're not running a distillery, you're running a marketing and sales company that also makes booze. I'm going to make a few hundred bottles in one go (one day distilling - one day botteling) this week. Why? Ingredients have already been paid, and I need all the time for sales. If you got the time you may ask your resellers if they need any help pushing your product on a busy day (Saturday?), or their Christmas fair. Use the opportunity to talk to their customers, see if there are any bars, restaurants or hotels you can convince to put your product on their "menu" - repeating sales!
  9. Anyone running a Dragon Still?

    I suppose you mean Still Dragon - yes I do, but it's a modular system so almost every one is different: Potstill, filled column (CM), bubblecaps... Better to explain what your producing and what kind of column you are thinking about first. BTW: mine's a massive 8" potstill, all stainless for gin and jenever.
  10. 50 ml carton: how many wee bottles?

    Also depends whether the reseller opens the box and sells the individual bottles, or resells the whole box to a hotel for minibars (as an example).
  11. Spirit Still Cooling System

    No13Distilling is from Canada, so I guess they use the same temperature scale as most of the world - Celsius In both scales -50 is frikkin cold, no discussion needed
  12. Gin Fragrance

    As Silk City already stated, fixatives. Try to add a bit of orris root, maybe 1/100th of the amount of juniper you use.
  13. Help!! Body Density Mouth fell

    Glycerol or sugar. Almost every single russian vodka seems to contain a bit of sugar, and many in the western world have copied that.
  14. Already read content resurfacing

    Nope, no new answers to these old threads. I've attached two screendumps, I've read everything between half April and yesterday but some messages from the 18th and 17th of August (and more) are visible again - just about one for every NEW (or extremely old unread) I read. I clicked on the subject, "Supply Chain", no new answers there.
  15. Already read content resurfacing

    It's driving me mad, every single article I open from the "Unread Content" screen seems to add one random article from the last few months to the list, most from between the 11th and 15th of August. I see four articles from the 11th of August, read one, back to Unread Content - 3 left. Good. Open another one, back to Unread Content - three left again, but not the one I just opened. Aaarrgh! It doesn't matter which browser or OS (Windows/Mac) I use.
