  2. If you want a distillery with a centerpiece still, this is the one. Personally I never felt all the high tech stuff was necessary to make outstanding whisky. I've tasted some pretty bad stuff on some very expensive equipment. If you want to flex your passion go old school. Excel has the price list and the prices are lowered. The bank wants money.

  3. We are close to importing our stills and the import agents are requesting bond information. According to the codes, you can have a distilling or rectifying plant for Food and Beverage, or other. If regulated by the FDA, the fee is much higher. Since the TTB and not the FDA regulate the industry, should it be classified as other? 8419.40.0080? According to the FDA website Alcohol The Department of the Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) regulates aspects of alcohol production, importation, wholesale distribution, labeling, and advertising. Consumers may write to TTB at 1310 G St. N.W., Box 12, Washington, DC 20005; telephone (202) 453-2000 or see the TTB Contact page.
  4. Hello, Do you have a small still sitting in the corner of your space collecting dust? Want to unload it and take the kids to Disney Land? We are looking to buy a small starter/small batch R&D still. Something in the 26-50 gallon range we be perfect. We have currently researched Hillybilly, Mile High, and Still Dragon stills. Everything from those as simple as single boilers with 6 plates to baine marie-types with agitators are under consideration. However, we are trying to keep costs down and still develop quality product while implementing the "starting small" concept. If you have one, know of any available through someone else, or have a particular opionio regarding your favorite R&D still, please let me know. Much appreciated, Curt

  6. A. The system was designed for around 200 gallons per hour of feed at around 10% alcohol. I do not think it is all that important how much alcohol is in the wash, but the feed rate can be probably a low of 100 to maybe a high of 250-300. At a 200 gallon-per-hour feed rate, that would be slightly over three gallons a minute going in. The product passes through a pipe in a pipe heat exchanger where it would be heated up from the fermentation temperature to approximately 150°F entering the top of the beer column. I would recommend you set the pipe in a pipe heat exchanger horizontal rather than vertical. In the event you shut it down without completely emptying it, you will not plug it up in the bottom elbows. B. The steam addition to the unit would be around 300 pounds per hour, the equivalent of about 10 horsepower of steam. A 22 horse power boiler unit that would run at about eight to 10 usage with plenty of steam for mashing. This steam should heat the bottom of the column to approximately 215-217°F, and I would have a dial thermometer at the bottom or a couple of plates up from the bottom of this column to validate that temperature for good viewing from ground level. You will also run about three psig in the bottom of the beer column when all of the trays are adequately filled. The steam can be controlled with a control valve to temperature at the bottom of the column or manually run with a hand-operated steam globe valve. If you are feeding the column with a positive displacement pump of some kind, like a Tuthill or something along those lines, you can also run the steam in manual and the column will be fairly stable. C. The 200 gallons an hour input, minus the ethanol boiled out, plus the direct inject steam condensate will result in approximately 200 gallons an hour out the bottom of the beer column. This product will be approximately 215°F, and when it cross-flows with the beer going in, it will be cooled down to somewhere around 150°F. Again, I would recommend a small lobe pump (Tuthill or equal) to pump the bottom product--a VFD drive on the electric motor will allow for variable speed?and take the product through the heat exchanger and discharged. The vapors off the top of the beer column are then transferred through the three-inch line to the bottom of the rectifier, and they will be approximately 100 proof. D. The bottom product off the rectifier column, which is the second column, will be approximately 100 proof and will return back to the top of the beer column. This system originally had a 1/8th horsepower centrifugal pump that pumped off the bottom of the rectifier to the top of the beer column and was more of a continuous running, maintain empty function. In order to make the 190 proof off the top of the rectifier column, there was cooling of the vapors to create a certain level of reflux. That would be for every three gallons of vapor going up the column, two gallons were condensed and returned back down the column for cooling. This was accomplished by controlling the flow of water through the coil in the top of the rectifier column coming in at (E) and coming out at (F). The flow here is calculated to be about 20 gallons per minute with a 20° temperature rise. Since this is making whiskey there is no need to run water through points (E) and (F). The vapors off the top of the rectifier column go over to the condenser where the final ethanol vapors are condensed. The flow in the product condenser, on the other hand, is not controlled. G & H. The cooling water going into (G) would be somewhere around 15 gallons per minute, and it would have about a 10° temperature rise at that flow rate. It would come out at (H) and either go to drain or to some type of a small cooling tower. Either way, this does give you a general idea of the water needed for the condenser. Below G&H will be another set of condensing tubes. If you return some product from the bottom of the beer column to this set of tubes, it will evaporate the heads and allow you to collect from the top copper tube on the side of the condenser. The copper tube below that is really for temp reassurance. I. Based on the 200 gallons an hour input at 10% ethanol, you will have somewhere between 20 and 22 gallons per hour of ethanol produced from (I) at 140-160 proof. The bottom part of that condenser was intended to be a small reservoir to hold the product. Then it was pumped from there to storage somewhere. For info - pjc@taconicdistillery.com $15K OBO
  7. For sale is an electric 275 gallon charge capacity pot/stripping still. The pot itself if 16 gauge stainless steel with a 13” manway (Dimensions of pot are below). There are no plates or baffles within the copper column. The dephlegmator has ¾” NPT ports for water lines. At the top of the column is a 1.5” Tri clamp 3” temperature gauge. The Lyne arm leaving the column is 2” copper ending in a 2” copper tri clamp fitting meeting the ss shotgun condenser. The still runs off (3) 5500 watt elements, however we recommend the addition of several elements to decrease heatup and run times. Without packing the still averages a run proof of 120 depending on how fast it’s ran. We’ve used the still for 9 months and have outgrown it’s capacity. This is ideal for a making gin from neutral spirits or dedicating as a gin still. Still is hand made and shows some character. Great for a work-horse in the DSP.

The still has a thick 7mm bottom, 16" manway with sight glass. Has a 4" side wall drain, adjustable legs and 3- 3" Tri clamp fitting for electric elements.

  12. The owner of my company is looking to buy a "Figgins Reciprocator" still and I was wondering if anyone in here has used one before. Does the unique double pot design into a single column run well? I don't quite get the point of having two pots and am curious about any advantages/disadvantages anyone may be aware of. Attached is a link to some info on it. Thanks! https://www.stilldragon.org/discussion/673/the-figgins-reciprocator
  13. Hey guys, Any advice on getting < 190 on a 15 plate reflux still? It's been such a pain for me, but I would like any tips on making it a bit easier to achieve. I normally add about 315-330 gallons at around 125-135 proof, heat ups are about 2.5-3 hours, all plates active and bubbling, easy to pull 188, that last few points though are a pain, any advice?

  20. Hello Bay area distillers, I am looking for licensed distilleries who are looking for equipment that I may have, in trade for use of the equipment, we can arrange storage and production contracts. I am willing to pay for space but also could do so in trade. I am open to all possibilities. I was in the midst of building a distillery when neighbors complained, voted for a CC&R change and stopped my land use leaving me looking for brand building solutions to have skin in the game before going to secure a multi-million dollar loan. At this point I am not in a position to move forward on the real estate side but have much equipment to utilize. What I am after: Space to run a brewery or mash tun to make malt whiskeys and other products - your mashing equipment or one I could provide. Barrel storage space to put the barrels away for 3 years minimum. (this could potentially be done at another site). Operate a bottling line either with our equipment or yours. Setting up a dedicated production schedule utilizing your staff or staff I could provide and train. Bring industry professionals to the distillery to explain my brand and enhancing your network if you desire. What I could do for you: - Brewing knowledge - I have taken several Siebel Institute Classes for brewing. I've read many textbooks pertaining to commercial brewery operations, yeast, water chemistry, and taken a great deal of time to develop beer recipes to distill into malt whiskey. - Distilling knowledge - Siebel Institute's Distilling course, Moonshine university, Holsteins' Distilling Class, Various ADI expo classes and I learned a great deal from a truly nice gentleman and someone I consider a friend, Hubert Germain-Robin, who transformed my ideas by showing me traditional methods, blending insight, grape varietal characteristics, and introducing me to people in Cognac, France where I was immersed in much of what is required to setup a distillery and manage a blending cellar. Between 2009 and now I have been doing research and slowly building an array of books, networks of professionals, and equipment to make building a brand possible. Anything I have in my head you are welcome to ask and during the contract I will keep whatever we speak of between us. If there is a concern for proprietary work taking place I will strongly respect this. Importing / Exporting - I had another business where I primarily would import items from China, Korea, Canada, Mexico, and European countries, and resell them. This has shown me forex and importing benefits, laws and regulations, as well as exposed me to many international people who are helpful and available to future needs and relationships. What I do I consider to be more structured and straight forward so I am not as concerned about beer recipes and distilling but i do understand many other types of extraction recipes that would benefit confidentiality. What equipment I have: I have several Chalvignac Pruhlo Alambic stills used by some of the most famous distilleries in California and abroad namely in Cognac, France. The sizes are 660 Gallon (2 fully automated sets from RMS Distillery in Napa - No longer in business), 330 Gallon (full automated new in crates), and 125 Gallon Hoga custom made to fit Charantais designs like the Pruhlo stills. Also, 2 transfer tanks to mix the first run or brouillis before pumping them back into the still for a second distillation. These stills allow gentle distillation making a very smooth eau de vie which can have low aggression and works well for clear spirits as well as control temperatures and makes for refined control of esters for making aged spirits. For anyone who has seen the spirits that come out they know why people use them. Germain-Robin and Charbay both use them in Northern California and these are the standard in Cognac/ Charentais region of France.

I ended up postponing the brewery due to the relocation issues. Jabso pump for cleaning and pumping 2" Yamada Carlson built double diaphragm pump for high proof 2" progressive cavity pump for fruit wines and crushing as well as high proof. Very universal and powerful pump that is gentle. Istill 250 for playing around with vodka and gin.

  25. Hi, we have a pot still and are distilling on the grain and we've noticed a silver metallic build-up that will occur after just one run of our 250 gal still. Does anyone have any experience with this? Otherwise the quality of the spirit seems good, but because our still is 1/2 the size of our fermenters it would be ideal if we could prevent this so we don't have to break down and clean between every stripping run. Other spirits (apple brandy and gin) have been run through with no similar problems. I've attached a picture of the lyne arm after a single run. We suspect there may have been some carry over, but we know there was none in the second run and we had the same problem, despite a thorough cleaning of the still. Thanks, Eli
