  1. I am currently on the East Coast but would relocate for the right opportunity. Having worked at Tuthilltown Spirits, Sonoma County Distilling and Breckenridge Distillery, I consider myself a well rounded distiller. I held the position of Assistant Production Manager in Breckenridge. In New York I began my distillery career and eventually supervised the blending and bottling department. Later I supervised the fermentation and distillation department. I currently hold the role of distiller at Sonoma County Distilling, a lesser known distillery that produces premium whiskey on direct fire alembic pot stills. I am hungry for my next challenge and I am looking to make it a permanent move. Thank you and kindly send any inquiries to gregguerra129@gmail.com. -Greg

  4. Hi folks We're looking at multi shot production of gin on the smaller of our stills. My understanding is that for a x2 concentration multishot you would add twice the amount of botanicals to your standard charge (say 100 litres at 50% ABV). Once the new make spirit is collected this is diluted down with more alcohol before proofing to bottling strength. My instinct tells me that if the total spirit collected from our still was say 40 litres at 75% then we would add a further 30 litres of alcohol before proofing (40/100 x 75). Could anyone elaborate/confirm/deny. we are aware of other issue such as proportional scaling of ingredients etc. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers - a cold distiller hugging his still to stay warm!

  8. Good day to all, I would like to inform the ADI community that I am seeking employment as an Assistant Distiller and willing to relocate from Northern California. Being a part of ADI is a community of craft distillers who stay in contact and network, so I thought I'd write this message to notify and get the word out. I want to learn everything I can and gain as much experience because I am a passionate individual in this field. My name is Raphaël Germain-Robin and I have worked as an apprentice assistant distiller at Stillwater Spirits through the American Distilling Institute (ADI) where I had received an internship through Bill Owens the President of ADI. Following that internship, I had my article published in the ADI newsletter. For 3 years I also worked part time as a cellar worker at Alambic, Inc. (Germain-Robin Brandy). I am looking to learn everything I can in all aspects of production from, whiskey, bourbon, rum, gin, brandy's, cognac, liquors, etc. Since 2015, I have been apprenticing with my father, Master Distiller and International Consultant Hubert Germain-Robin, absorbing information and learning from his knowledge of distilled spirits and the aging process, If you or know anybody who is perhaps looking for an Assistant Distiller please pass this message along and I will gladly email you my Resume for more information. I hope this message finds you in good 'Spirits'. Thank you for your time! Sincerely, ~ Raphaël Germain-Robin

  12. *****Edit: Thank you for your interest! I have found a new position.
  13. I had a few questions with the monthly TTB reports: I am a little confused on where to document bulk spirits before they are made into gin. We make vodka first which goes from our production account and then gets deposited into our storage account before bottling. When we need to make some gin we take some of the vodka from our storage tank and then redistill it into gin. Do we show the spirits coming from our storage account back to production for redistillation? How would you show that on the production reports? If that is the case what happens when you make some of your cuts when you redistill it to make gin? You could technically be left with less proof gallons in the end. Or do you keep the gin completely separate from the vodka storage tank and it still is technically in the production account until it is made in gin?
  14. Hey Folks, My partner and I are working on our business plan and one point is creating some challenges for us. Not having a background in fermentation or distilling, I was hoping someone or some people on here could point me in the direction of some information on how to work out yields - specifically for molasses-based rums - for fermentation and subsequent distillation. I imagine the variables are sugar concentration of the wash, the type of yeast, time, and temperature (and possibly others), but I'm not familiar with the basic formulas to estimate ABV of a wash post fermentation. Could anyone recommend some resources or offer advice? Thanks for your help.
  15. How are you keeping your fermentors warm during this cold winter? Most yeasts are effective at temps between 68° and 88° so with temperatures in the sub 20 range I am concerned about slowing down or stopping fermentation.
  16. After digging into many posts related to start ups, production, volume, sales, etc., I cannot locate any data - anecdotal OK - related to the amount of production / distribution (whether self or through distributor) / tasting room sales, etc. that a start up distillery had in Y1 and a comparison of same to Y2 or Y3. I'm not talking revenue - just cases (or bottles/barrels put up if applicable). I'm close to receiving approval on a loan for a small downtown (town=6000 people) Main Street location distillery and tasting room in (touristy) CO. I plan to produce vodka and two liqueurs and have estimated production at 800 cases of vodka per year (12-750ml) and 600 cases of liqueur (calculated on 12-750ml). My biz plan assumes 50 cases of each sold from the tasting room and the remainder sold thru distribution networks (including utilizing strong regional contacts in the restaurant/bar/retail/hotel industries). I also have a network of contacts in key cities in the US but am still trying to understand how I will utilize them in connection with a distributor or broker. Would anyone be willing to comment on their own personal experience from start up thru Y1 or Y2 or Y3 related to what was produced / distributed / sold and how. Alternatively, if there is data of this nature available "to the public", I would relay the location to my banker, who is having difficulty locating statistics of this nature. I know I've got a long way to go, and much to figure out but no need to continue if the bank says "no". Thanks for any input/direction to keep looking - as simple as Case #s produced/distributed. CB

  18. Very Noob! to distilling and had a question about production time and yearly output of a basic whiskey. Using the example/diagram from the ADI Craft of Whiskey Distilling on page 30 1. Mash-Lauter 950 gal wash. 2. Ferment 950 gal 9% wash. Also Why use the two secondary tanks for brite beer? 3. Two stripping runs (no plates) in a 450gal wash still. yeilds 290 gal 35% low wines. 4. Three spirit runs in a 90gal still. Head and tail cuts yeilds 100gal 60% hearts for barreling. Say 2 years aging. 5. Dilute to 40% for bottling. what are the average production time for each step? and how much could you produce in a month with this equipment setup and process if you're brewing/distilling an average 40 hour work week? Thanks!!! page30.pdf
  19. What's the best way to neutralize residual botanical aromas after a gin batch? Is there a particular product or compound etc. producers use to effectively clean a still after gin batches?
