We are in an industrial town and we have many suppliers of racks for 50 gallon barrel drums. Local suppliers arent certain if they differ in sizing to wine / whisky barrel racks . By photo they look the same but was wonderkng if anyone out there could clarify this for us. We can order in wine barrel racks and pay shipping if needed, but are trying to source local for anything possible. Are drum barrel racks good to use? (or identical?). We are looking at the standard 2 barrel forkliftable racking most distilleries seem to use. Thanks in advance.
Hello, I'm only in the early stages of starting a distillery in Colorado and this is my first post in the ADI forums because I've always been able to find answers to my questions in older posts - so thank you all for providing such a wealth of information on here. Anyway, I couldn't find any previous posts relating to my question, which deals with transfer pumps. Can someone please clarify what sort of pump would be suitable for use in applications such as transferring from mash tun to fermenter, fermenter to boiler, boiler to tank used for diluting (as well as being able to transfer dilution water from a holding tank to the diluting tank), and spent grains to storage tanks? I'm having trouble with this while trying to source a pump because I've had two suppliers tell me that it must be pneumatic rather than electric for use within a distillery. I can understand why, but wouldn't other electrical components (such as overhead lighting) also be of the same risk? Also, the pneumatic pump requires an air compressor, which would be run off of electricity... What are others using to accomplish these tasks? Any insight or enlightenment would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Ryan
