  1. ha no! Im just curious how its legal and in what states? Its my understanding that its federally mandated that its not legal. So even where states say its ok its still not legal at the fed level and the fed law trump state law.
  2. Oh sorry i thought this was a post on the American Distilling Institute forum. But sure they can be from anywhere. So Turbo where you from?
  3. So by doing it legally you have a DSP then?
  4. You might not like this advise but. You might have a better shot if you start up a little smaller, Not buying the property and just leasing something. Start up after a couple years turning a profit the bank will be much happier to work with you. As of now you don't have any business or industry experience for them to bank on.
  5. Most likely they will say give us 10 more MB of info on Tuesday. There is a lot of filling out paperwork in SBA loans.
  6. You should probably get a different bank, Our SBA that we just wrapped up had no such requirements.
  7. Ya forgot squeegee on a stick.
  8. Any pictures of the distillery? Would be interesting to see what the set up was like. Size and what not.
  9. Usually the loan you get is taken out by a separate bank (you post 10% the bank posts 90%). Then once the build out is complete another bank that works with the CDC and the SBA comes in and pays down your loan to your original bank taking 50% of the total loan amount. So yes the SBA isn't going to give you money and take on the loan until there is something their to loan for. Or at least thats how it worked with us.
  10. Ok we started at 160 gallons of wash at 17 brix. I added 240 grams each of ec 1118 and fermaid O Its been fermenting at and average of 70 degrees Ph was 6.6 at the start. Now 14 days later we are down to 3.5 brix and ph is staying constant at 3.6.
  11. A constructive critique should be allowed. Its hard though when no one (or few at least) use their real name, makes it very easy to bash whoever you want with little to know recourse. I say if your going to pen an letter digging on someone in order for it to be posted and stay posted you should be required to post your real name, and contact info with it. Curious what state is the manufacture from?
  12. Starts out at about 6 and ends down around 3.8.
  13. yeah thats what people keep telling me but its taking weeks to ferment out.
  14. Syrup. Not all of us live in Hawaii where cane grows on every corner. lol
  15. The brix for the Evaporated Cane Juice I'm using is 77 – 79.
