  1. +1 on Hoochware. We've been using it for over a year and love it. We manage our entire business, front to back with it.
  2. Hi Lorenzo, We ran a combo mash tun/stripping still for quite some time. It worked really well. We were usually able to strip to right at 100 proof when going through the thumper attached to the stripping still, so we had more than enough abv for the spirit run. Cheers! Adam
  3. We do still have the tank at the moment. From the floor to the top of the agitator motor is right at 7'. Thanks, Adam
  4. You got it! We switched to RO + UV for all water after mashing and particulate + carbon filter for mash water since we cereal mash and hold at 180 for 90 min.
  5. What is the water source for mash and proofing? Could possibly be geosmin. We run a well and have bumped into that before we installed our new filter.
  6. Sold the condenser and dropped the price on the jacketed tank w/ agitator to $5k. Need it gone!
  7. Below is a link to a video walk-around of the equipment. Please disregard the portion about the finishing still as it has already been sold. The 2 tanks listed in this ad are shown in the video. I also have all of the other tanks and tubing to put the still back together. I would be willing to let the entire setup go for $12,000 if you would be interested. Our only reason for getting rid of it is because our new (larger) mash tun finally came in. Please let me know if you have any questions! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1supbYToj38dlNNUVFWYktoWUE Thanks, Adam
  8. Both still available. Open to reasonable offers on each.

  12. Here's a little gem we found on ebay. Made an offer for $2k and they accepted....I think this one was on there for close to a year. Based on the tags, it may have been used to sift phosphorus at a Kodak plant??? Anyway, we had to get a new screen made for it that ran us about $30. We have since mounted it on top of a new tank and it works like a charm. In the whole setup for about $2,500. Some of the best money we've spent since we're on septic.
  13. We currently mash in our fermenter, but do it in a bit of a different way. We have a combo vessel where we mash, ferment, and do our stripping run. We actually have the system up for sale right now because we are increasing capacity. It works like a charm and we are doing about 500-525 gallons per batch through it. Here is a link to the sale ad if you are interested: Thanks, Adam
  14. Interested in the custom metal craft transfer tanks and the alcohol tester. Can you please email me your contact info to adam.stumpf at stumpysspirits dot com? Thanks, Adam
  15. Depends on how high of an alcohol content you want your wash to have. This is always a nice reference if you are trying to build a recipe from scratch: https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/calculator/ If you are going to shoot for a 10-12% wash, I'd guess that you are going to be in the neighborhood of 1,750-2,000 pounds, depending on what kind of efficiency you are expecting. Please keep in mind that there are may variables in the above assumptions....other things you are going to want to think about are yeast attenuation, grist profile/size, enzymes or malt only, will you cereal mash, etc.. Cheers and good luck! Adam
