  1. Thanks Guys, I saw the safety inspector for my area today and he said he wouldn't allow us to turn this thing on until he saw some installation data or manual from the contractor. Plus we need to get it certified for use in Canada as it doesn't have a Canadian certification stamp, only the European "CE" I've reached out to the manufacturer a few times over the last 5 months and never once heard anything back. Does anyone have contact info for Arnold Holstein that'll actually be responded to?
  2. Hi Everyone, I recently acquired a beautiful Arnold Holstein 45L propane fired testing still and I'm having a heck of a time finding ANY information on set up, installation, operation or replacement parts. I'd like to make sure this thing is safe before I fire it up and that I'm operating it safely and within guidelines. Any help would be appreciated. Here's a pic of it in -Dave arnold still.pdf
  3. Hi Guys, I'm looking for info on painting and marking barrels. My guess is that I should avoid oil paint or stain (because leaching) but I haven't been able to find anything on the net that wasn't pintrest for my garden Any recommended paints or dyes? I'd like to paint white and stencil over top as in the attached picture Cheers! -Dave
  4. Bumping this post! I saw a big change in "depth" of taste after 3 weeks in bottle and tracked it for 6 weeks. By that time we were pretty much sold out. I still have a half dozen bottles of my first batch (~18 weeks in bottle) in my private collection but am hesitant to open them.
  5. Hey Guys, Thanks for the link but I'm hesitant to look to a manufacturers website for unbiased reviews of their equipment and customers service. I was looking for to hear if anyone is still using them, and if they are happy. There were a lot of people with a lot of opinions talking about them last year but nothing at all lately.
  6. Hey Friends, I was just looking at my iStill50 I bought a few years back for R&D (holding up my collection of hats in my living room) and got to wondering, What hapened to those guys? I remember lots of activity on this board from a bunch of months ago, but then nothing. How are they doing? Do you have one and want to talk about it (good or bad) Anyone bought one recently?
  7. Congrats! Can't wait to see the catalog
  8. Welcome Philstill! Where in Canada are you? We're on Vancouver Island.
  9. WhiskeyTango: We ferment honey, not grain. For us, the switch to on demand was a no brainer. We heat all our stills electrically so we don't have a steam system. We also don't save or store hot water. All our hot water came from a traditional gas hotwater tank. The tank quickly became our prime limiting factor, waiting for it to fill and then heat. The new on demand system provides constant water flow at 65C (you can set it higher with the commercial bypass switch) total investment under $2000 CAD and it completely changed our lives.
  10. My favourite flavour is pirate #5
  11. Has anyone heard of changes coming to the definition of rum? I heard some rumors but have no idea where to look to confirm. Cheers, Dave
  12. Hedge: What I have now (for half my tanks) is a 2"-1.5" F-F NPT then a 1.5" Male npt-1.5" triclamp It works, but its long, has lots of little spots for fluid pooling and leaking and costs a few bucks. I was hoping to minimize the number of connections and length of the adapters.
  13. James: I need three in total. NavenJohnson: I tried that site and couldn't find any triclamp at all.
  14. Hey all, I'm looking for a handful of 2" female npt to 1.5" tri-clamp adapters. Anyone have a lead on some of these or have some lying around? Cheers, Dave
  15. Hey All, I'm flying south from Canada, all the way to Austin and was looking for suggestions on things to do and distilleries to visit. Any suggestions? I'll be there from 09-15 April Dave
