  1. choretime seem is the standard and is what I ordered based on recommendation of my local brewer. if you are just running one line it shouldn't be too bad 2-3K
  2. great american made mill especially for corn
  3. I was looking at this system with a float switch and filling a 550 gallon tote https://www.espwaterproducts.com/flexeon-at-1000-reverse-osmosis-commercial-system-1000-gpd-110v/ I have very soft well water, my water test only showed Manganese. The amount was .275 ppm it was considered high and noted that it would color my fixtures. No chlorine or other minerals were detected.
  4. Can somebody educate me on the differences between "Inline Filling Systems, LLC" and "In-Line Packaging Systems, Inc." Inline Filling Systems, LLC is out of Venice, Florida. We are looking at their four head benchtop semiauto overflow filling machine priced around +_12,000.00 uses a slide tray so is hands on but is pneumatic so no electrical hookup, pumps product out of drum. a capper can be added and a labeler. production around 10-12 bottles per-minute. talked to a fellow craft distiller who was satisfied with this filler. if you want more automation requires totally new machine. In-Line Packaging Systems, Inc. is out of North Charleston, SC. We are looking at their 4 head economy filler priced around +_16,000.00. more automated only need to load bottles on conveyor. capper cost at least 4x as much + accessories total around $36,000.00 but fully automated. can added labeler and feed tables enables you to feed new bottles in and box on the other end. anybody have experience with these companies?

  7. We went with an RMS 9x18 triple pair mill. to upgrade to the 18" rollers wasn't much more $ and doubled the mill capacity. RMS claims the mill can do 6 tons of dried corn an hour and about 20% less for rye, wheat and barley.
  8. So who is using a carbon filter? Seems like there are a lot of option as far as types/size of carbon. So what system and carbon are you using?
  9. I am looking for recommendations for an RO water system. wanting RO to proof my spirits.
  10. I have one coming at the end of next week. My system will use direct injection steam in the mash cooker and in the my still. I didn't want to use chemicals to treat my water. If you have hard water you might need a water softener. They are the cheapest clean steam option I could find and were less than most traditional boilers. Wilderness Trail in Danville, KY already has one in place and gave me a good review.
  11. We are looking at erecting a building to age whiskey and maybe other spirits. Does anybody know the cost and or benefits of building the listed options. I am located on the Mississippi coast about 12-15 miles from the Gulf. We don't get many freezing nights 6-12 per year, and our humidity is quite high. I tried to look up Rum aging but couldn't find much. how tall would the suggested height be of either of these choices? 1) traditional rick house 2) Steel frame building with pallet racks and timbers horizontal barrel storage 3) Steel building using stack-able forklift 2 barrel racks 4) Steel building using pallets with vertical barrels
  12. Seems like a lot of distilleries use chain disk but my local brewery uses the flex auger. Flex augers have more capacity and are cheaper. Chain disk clean out better and are gentler on grain. Any reviews on how flex augers do with the grist once ground. I am thinking around 500 micron meal.
  13. I think I am going to get some unloading racks from Sudenga Industries. Anybody use this company? http://sudenga.com https://www.facebook.com/SudengaIndustries
  14. The major benefit of roller mills is the dust "free" part. Both Sasquatch and RMS claim to be "dust tight". I think they probably still need a cleaning every so often. Apparently some distillers use a hammer mill for corn and a roller mill for everything else. For the price of the extra set of rollers one could just about buy a hammer mil. Also buying cracked corn is another answer as you pointed out. I had thought about putting a hammer mill outside under a lean-to to keep the dust, noise, and explosion hazard outside.
  15. Seems like your chiller maybe a little small OR you will not have capacity to run everything at once or more than once a day. Buffer tanks work but they need time to recover.
