  1. I was reading the Artisan Spirit magazine the other day and the article written by Wilderness Trail Distillery on cranking out the maximum number of barrels on your equipment got me thinking about their mashing technique. Is there a reason to add smaller grains (rye, wheat) after gelatinizing the corn, instead of adding it at the same time. The whole article is on minimizing the cook time and overall efficiency, and I don't know what the downside of adding rye and wheat at the same temperature step as the corn would be...thoughts? Some off flavor I don't know about? I have done a few mashes with the corn and wheat/rye added at the same time and brought to 190; I have never really seen any problem with this but perhaps if I dropped temp to 170 to add rye/wheat the flavor would change.

  5. I am selling a used "Shell and tube condenser" instant hot water heater manufactured by Jet-Vac. This hot water heater is steam powered off your boiler and allows you to make unlimited amounts of hot water up to 211 degrees at up 30GPM. It is big, about 6~7 feet tall and all stainless. Built in 1994 the nameplate says it is rated to 30 GPM. It was included with my boiler when I bought it (15hp Fulton) but I don't need it. I've seen it in operation but have not used it myself. The outside insulation jacket is cracked and split in a couple of places from moving it around. Included are the NTP flanges to hook into a system as well as a custom built stand. In the pic you can see me standing next to the heater (the heater is about 6 ft tall) and the custom made steel stand is next to it. Its rated up to 75psi and the original owner had it running at 60psi, lower pressures will yield lower hot water flow rates. A pressure regulator, relief valve and tempering valve are NOT included. You must use a tempering/mixing valve after the heater to get the exact water temp you need. See attached pics for more info. Asking $2000 as I just don't need it. Shipping not included and it will need to crated. For more Contact Kevin at 603-512-0455. Located in Seabrook, NH
  6. Hello guys and girls, I was wondering how you seperate your wheat grains after mashing from your wort? We tried a sieve plate but it kept cloging up and was dead slow. Tried replacing half the malted wheat with malted barley but that wasn't giving us the flavour profile we were looking for. Tried rice hulls but they are quiet expensive over here. Any good ideas exept a liquid solid seperator? Cheers!

  8. My systems are all electric, so separation is a must. At the moment, I have a way to separate via a press, but the press requires a hiccup in the process flow while it is filled/pressed/emptied. I would love to have a Russell Finex machine, but 20k (as I hear they cost) is not a doable number right now. I know Dehner started a thread about a version of this that he is designing, but does anyone know of a secondary market for equipment like this? Are there any other manufacturers making something like this for a lower price? Alternatively, for those unable to distill on grain, how are you separating solids from your wash? Any input appreciated. ( )
  9. Hi all! We are thrilled to be working with a local farmer who is feeding our spent grains to her pigs. We have a few questions hopefully people with experience can answer. 1. How long is the mash safe to eat after delivering to the farm? She only has two pigs so the mash seems to be spoiling before they eat it all. 2. Anyone have a resource for nutritional content of a basic grain to bottle mash? 3. One of the pigs is pregnant and the farmer is nervous about giving her any. Anyone dealt with this? Thanks for your time! Amy Alchemy Distillery
  10. Well, we jumped the gun ever so slightly and picked up a used bulk tank for use as a mash tun. 300 gallon capacity, was used to make sugar syrups prior. Pretty good shape, has the agitator but needs a new motor. Single wall, no jacket, domed bottom. So now comes the tricky part... easiest/smartest way to turn this thing in to a cooker? A couple contraints: We're not doing steam, so that's out and we won't likely have 3 phase power for the foreseeable future. We're looking to cook 100% corn or a sugar wash for starters. Move on to a more standard bourbon grain bill after that. Which makes the handling of electric elements tricky with the whole scorching issues. We are open to the possiblity of strikewater if we absolutely have to. Probably not the ideal set up but we're starting on a shoe string and this tank leaves us good room to grow (or even convert to a big pot down the line!) Here's a pic of the new baby. (Damrow 300surg gallon dairy/food tank.)
  11. Can we help you out? We have: 1. excess distilling capacity 2. access to new oak barrels in a variety of sizes 3. ability to produce fantastic whiskey, in custom mash bills or standard recipes We are looking for distilleries or brand owners that are wanting to either catch up or get ahead on their whiskey stocks by contracting with us to produce their bulk whiskey here in Middleton, Wisconsin. Our ideal customers are looking for anywhere from four to twelve barrels of whiskey a month on a standing "subscription" basis. We can produce on a regular schedule and either hold for truckload quantities or ship individual barrels when completed. Each batch will have mashing notes, grain tracking data, and arrive in a brand new, white oak barrels, charred or toasted to your specifications. Some of our customers have aged their whiskey from us in the past couple of years and are now winning awards for its taste and quality. Break the habit of working with the "you'll take what we make for you" bulk whiskey distilleries and enjoy being actively involved in the process of making a unique and high-quality spirit that will have much stronger marketing value. Organic certified bulk whiskey coming in 2016! We are anticipating that our capacity will be filled quickly with this announcement- please don't hesitate to contact us.

Please hold off on phone calls, we will answer emails promptly- promise. :-)
  12. Does anyone have experience making rye whiskey? If so, can you describe some of the major differences in mash bill or procedure that made a successful rye? After two extremely low-yield batches, I am scouring for resources on rye whiskey. I have not had much luck finding detailed information. If you know of any good books, journals, or websites on rye whiskey (particularly the mash) please let me know.

  16. Hey folks, I've been gearing up to produce some whiskey from unmalted barley. I've done a few very small test mashes so far and the results have been a little disappointing. My efficiency is traditionally good with corn and rye but these have been really reluctant to give me what I'm looking for. Some details: - I'm trying for a ~28 gallon beer (5 lbs grain w/ 2.2 gallons water up front for a final volume of 2.5 gallons wash) - I'm gelating above 190 for nearly an hour - have tried both 10% & 30% malt additions - have tried to reduce viscosity with "rests" at ~105 and 130 (tho given mash thickness, I probably didn't wait long enough) I eventually saw conversion pick up when I finally bumped my saccharification temp up to ~150, but in the end I still got much lower extraction than I do on corn and rye. I have not done a starch test yet, though the wort does look turbid throughout the mash. I've assumed this cloudiness is from a protein-rich batch of grain. I have stirred these mashes as I normally do, which is every 20 or so mins. I'm curious if an abundance of protein/glucan can congest the wort to a point where conversion is compromised? Are the enzymes likely to just get bogged down like that? At this point, I might try using the 30% malt in three additions: 3% premalt, 13.5% at start of mash schedule, then another 13.5% after 145 deg saccharification. I'm thinking with this last addition I can extend conversion into the high 150s w/o worrying about denaturing things too quickly. I'm running out of ideas on this and would like to figure it out without hightempase or such. Are there any particular tricks to mashing unmalted barley (and other protein-rich grains)? Clearly the Irish make it work, and I'm guessing they don't use enzymes either. Cheers!
  17. I have attached a photo of a few of the beautiful Vendome 500 gallon copper kettles that I have. I also have one 3000 gallon Copper Vacuum pans and three Stainless Steel units. Junior
  18. Wher did you buy your mash pump? What type?
  19. As a distillery that ferments and distills on the grain - I am looking for a solution to separate the grain from the slop after distillation. What - if anything are you using to accomplish the separation? I have a farmer lined up farmer to take all of the grain however he would like it separated from the liquid. Any thoughts are appreciated.

  22. Hello Everyone, My name is Dennis Schoenwald and I am a Sales Engineer/Project Manager for a mechanical manufacturer called RMS Roller Grinder located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota USA. My company has been established since the early 1980s in servicing roller mills of all makes and models within the feed and grain industry all over North America and beyond. Bill Owens contacted me a few weeks ago about advertising and helping the Craft American Distilllery market out like I did with the Craft Brewery scene this past year. As one advid brewer to another, we shared similiar ideas and recommendations to help educate and improve the craft distillery market. Our discussion involved particular attention to detail on milling grains from malted barley down to flour to rye to corn and beyond. I have had great pleasure on creating and delievering "BREWER" friendly mills for the craft brew scene with our 2 rollers, 4 rollers, 6 rollers, and NOW our new 8 roller grinder for distilleries and mash filter applications. I am currently working on a handful of distillery projects using our 6 & 8 roller grinders within different geographies across the U.S. I am hoping that I can influence and help improve your milling applications if you are looking for: 1. Dust tight machines, dust-free sample ports on our machines to help you maintain the highest quality grind 2. Better consistency of grain milled 3. 250-350 Microns (Flour)/Particle Size with a low standard deviation ranging from 1.5-2.0 on all 6 rollers & 8 rollers 4. Improved Efficiencies with each batch allowing for less grain to be utilized 5. More control of product characteristics 6. Improve flow ability through take away systems 7. All adjustments located conveniently on the front of machine; no need to remove covers, screens, belt guards, etc. 8. Energy cost saving motors and start up panels using 50% less KwH so your are not amp'd out from the intial startup for the day 9. Service & Support 24/7 365 days with a direct cell phone line to your Rep to trouble shoot or educate...ME 10. American made in the Upper Midwest I would very much like to help each and everyone within your industry on their malt/grain handling equipment for any new startup project or expansion.

  23. These Boilers were purchased by me off Craigslist for installation in my new Distillery. The Nat Gas Utility to the building is insufficient to support them so I am going a different direction to suit my needs. The Thermaflo unit originates out of an Oregon Brewery that out-grew this boiler. To the best of my knowledge it is fully functional. We have air pressure tested it and replaced the only damaged item, the condensate loop. The Burnham Independence unit came to me from Colorado Springs out of a large Victorian home. It was put into service in 2008 and was then removed last year when the home was gutted for renovation. I was told that the place sat vacant for approx 6 months. So this unit should only have about 2.5 years of service on it. We have also air pressure tested this unit and to the best of my knowledge it works just fine. $3600.00 for Both or as below.
