  6. No formula should be needed for vodka if you aren't adding anything to it. If you haven't found it on the TTB site, this tool is somewhat helpful for deciding whether a formula is required: http://ttb.gov/tutorials/ic2007-4_help.shtml
  7. My experience is that Briess is really expensive for the unmalted grains. I've had great success with James Beck at Cereal Byproducts. They're a broker that can get you good spot prices with very reasonable freight. He may not serve your region, but may be able to point you in the right direction. Here's his contact information: James Beck Ingredient Specialist Cereal Byproducts Company® Serving the Feed and Food Industries Since 1917 55 E. Euclid Ave. Suite 410, Mt. Prospect, IL 60056 847-818-1550 Phone | 847-370-7952 Cell | 847-818-1659 Fax jbeck@cerealbyproducts.com http://www.cerealbyproducts.com/
  8. Call me a "dunderhead", but I didn't see any ingredients (molasses or otherwise) on Uline. Could you post a link, Salish?
  9. Mine's a little Wisconsin specific, but I'm happy to share it with you. PM me your e-mail address and I'll send the file.
  10. Count me in as an interested purchaser. Also, I think a $500 annual subscription fee isn't out of line, especially if you plan upgrades/additional functionality.
  11. If you are able, find a place with trench drains and sloped floors or have them installed. Your life will be much easier. I needed to replace portions of the slab in my building (too thin and unreinforced for my tank sizes), so I had drains installed. Best money I've spent. Also, if you ever make your way to central Wisconsin, I'd love to show you around my joint! Brian
  12. Congratulations! I can't wait to come north and visit you.
  13. I'm calling mine "Chester Copperpot" from the Goonies. A dated reference, but we like it.
  14. Chuck Androcchio with Tricor has been an excellent resource for me. It was painless to get set up and he was able to get the most competitive rates. They work with many craft distilleries. Chuck Andracchio TRICOR Insurance 877-468-7426, ext 1444
  15. Hi there, I'm interested in the chiller. Please let me know the model number so I can determine if it will meet my needs. Thanks, Brian brian.cummins@distillerypartners.com
