Primary and secondary condensers with automatic cooling. Includes heads and main product collection tank with vacuum pump for vacuum distillation. Pressure gauge and relief valves on pot. Currently uses three 5.5kw electric heating elements but can swap them out for steam coil or direct steam injection using tri-clamp fittings. Located in Westchester County NY.
  3. Sold the mash tun, but the mobile boiler room is still available.
  4. Need the space, so we're reducing the price to move.
  5. Still have the mash tun ?

    if so, bottom line price please

  6. JarHead, is the boiler new and are you in New York? Could you send me the picture of the boiler right side up. Is the mash tun separate and not included in the $50k?

  7. Price Drop. The Mash Tun is sold, but the mobile boiler room is still available. We're ready to make a deal! We're expanding and rationalizing our equipment holdings. Please PM me with inquiries. (Sorry about some of the inverted pics. I can email them if wanted.) Mobile Boiler Room The mobile boiler room is a completely piped and wired boiler room and could be hooked up to a facility and producing steam in about a day. Once in place, either inside or outside a facility, all that is required is a water, electrical, gas and condensate return hookups and its ready to go. It contains a 22 hp Columbia boiler that can be fired with propane or natural gas along with blow down tanks, condensate return and electrical. It is housed in a 20 foot container and has never been used. $50,000 $33,000 Mash Tun/Cooker 300 mash tun/cooker build by Spokane Industries. Comes with stairs, mixer, false bottle and steam injection ring for even heating of mash. Lightly used and in perfect condition. Sold.
  8. Guy, Assigned, approved or needs correction?

  11. Chinook, I'm a big seller of sba loans (trading jargon for "i dont like them"). Like kckadi said, you jump through a bunch of hoops to for the lending institution and you end up having to sign a personal guarantee for the loan anyway.
  12. Sorry guys, I was a little brief. Here is how I do it. All this assumes that you know how much alcohol you started with, preferably by weight, and you determined the proof by distilling a known volume of the liqueur, collecting all the alcohol, replacing the missing volume with water, keeping temp constant, etc and then measuring the proof. The key is to take the sugar content out of the equation. It’s irrelevant when you calculate the proof, so just assume that you’re working with alcohol and water. If you have significant alcohol loss from the maceration then it isnt this straight forward, but I always make a syrup by weight and measure its density so I can make weight corrections easily. Also, by weighing the pre-proofed sample and the proofed result gives you a relative density of the two so you can take out the dissolved solid component of weight. It also helps to have a laboratory still, a precision bench scale and a water bath. Lets assume that the proof you got was 74. And you started with 100 lbs of 190 proof. Then 100lbs *.14718 lbs/gal (table 4) = 14.718gal @ 190pf => 13.98gal @100% => 37.78 gal @ 74 pf => 37.78 gal / .12557lbs/gal = 300.87 lbs = W1 (this is what it would have weighed if you just were using water and alcohol.) Now, 13.98 gal @ 100% => 34.95 gal @ 40% abv (80pf) => 34.95 gal / .12616 lbs/gal = 277.03 lbs = W2 W1 – W2 = 23.84 lbs excess water So, how much 190pf to add (lbs) to get to 80pf when you have 23.84lbs of water? Total Weight (T) = Weight(190) + Weight(H2O) = W(190) + 23.84 Total weight is also equal to: T = 190/80 * (.14718/.12616) * W(190) (here is where the magic happens) W(190) + 23.84 = 2.375 * 1.1666 * W(190) = 2.77 * W(190) => 23.84 = 2.77 * W(190) – W(190) => 23.84/1.77 = W(190) => W(190) = 13.47 lbs (Sorry for those of you who didn’t want an algebra lesson.)
