Geothermal cooling

When the flow is adjusted properly my stills will put out 150°F water from the condensers during whiskey runs.  Most of my customers run their hot condenser water into plastic totes or stainless tanks and they use all of that water for their next mashing in and for CIP and other cleaning.  No chiller needed in places where tap water is less than 62°F.  No underground tanks needed, huge savings on heating water and really fast heat up to operating temp times for mash cookers. All of the condenser water is completely recycled.

That's exactly right, ground temp is about 55F and you can run a chiller at 45F as well.
