  1. Lets not discount temp swings. We age in a non climate controlled warehouse and here in missouri it gets hot in the summer. I see a lot of people aging inside their distillery building. I would think it would take additional time when you don't get the temp changes, particularly the heat of summer. Everyone has a different answer which really depends on their location, where they age, proof they put in the barrel, how tight they cut, etc so this question cannot really be answered with any degree of certainty but its nice to see how others are doing it. I had a 5 gallon barrel when we started I had forgotten about. I found it on the back of a shelf after it had been sitting about 2 1/2 years. New barrel filled with bourbon. I had several others I had dumped at 8 months. By what everyone believes it should have been way over oaked and not good. That was not the case. It was outstanding! Made me realize I don't know anything! lol
  2. contact custom metalcraft in springfield missouri
  3. We use a lot of 15 gallon barrels and our typical time in barrel is about 18 months. After a year its decent but gets much better after 15 to 16 months and we have been pulling most around the 18 month time period. Weather and what proof you put in may have an effect.
  4. Sorry I didn't see your post till today. When I bottle by myself I fill about 100 bottles in an hour but that includes me corking, sealing, and casing back up. It will easily do more but I stop to do the other things. With someone doing the sealing we do about 20 cases in 1 1/2 hours. Thats 240 bottles. Could do more but I stop and cork and move over to another table for the seals to be put on. The bottleneck, excuse the pun, which slows the process is not in the filling machine its the rest of the process that most of the time I am doing alone.
  5. I have emailed those of you who asked to be emailed. Have yet to hear back from any of you. I'm guessing the inquiries must be spam. If you are interested in the still call me at the distillery. The number is easy to find. Google is your friend.
  6. Yes, it is available. Just sent you an email. Thanks
  7. Its right at 43 Inches wide and 43 inches tall. The legs adjust so it can be an inch or two shorter to the 8 inch flange on the top of boiler.
  8. Have had 2 sales fall through with no shows. Still is available for sale and pickup immediately.
  9. components are from Stilldragon. I've had a lot of inquiries about when it will be available. Its available now as we already have our larger system in place.
  10. I have emailed you Don. Let me know via email if you have additional questions. Thanks.
  11. We have upgraded to a larger system and have our 380 liter still for sale. 6" column with 4 copper bubble cap plates. Still has 5, 2" tri clamp fittings in boiler for your heating elements although we have never used more than 4, 5500 watt elements to heat the still. 2" tri clamp port for drain in bottom and 2, 2" tri clamp fittings on top for temp probe or whatever else you might want to put there. We typically distill with a 100 gallon charge. I usually use 2 sections and plates to make our corn whiskey moonshine which recently won a silver medal at the 2015 ADI competition. Not interested in shipping. Still will be cleaned and can be picked up here at our location in Osage Beach, Missouri. $4,500 for all. If you have questions please post here or message me here and I will respond soon as possible. Thanks.
  12. I had a similar experience with this guy. Emailed him that I was not interested in his barrels at his prices and stop spamming me. His reply was typical of a jr. high boy with lots of profanity. lol
  13. Paulson. Great corks and great people.
  14. $380? each? is that a typo?
  15. We use an enlomatic filler with the filter canister. Have bottle thousands of bottles with it and it has worked perfectly. I use the one bottle filler from St. Pats. They also have the 4 bottle filler but we typically only bottle about 400 to 500 bottles at a time so the one bottle filler works fine for us now. The one bottle filler is $395 if I remember right and the 4 bottle set up is over $2K..
