    @Julius, Exactly! Reactive and knee-jerk based off of one possible bad apple. This is right on the money with what I am saying. Many, if not most of the standardized carriers are becoming more and more reactionary to distilleries and are now wanting to see them as a "high-risk" classification of business. I do not see this changing any time soon, so it is time to buckle up and hang on. Again, I am working on educating them more, and looking at several other carriers/programs at this point in time. Currently there are still options, but they are becoming tighter and imposing many more requirements that they had not required in the past. Stay Vigilant!!!!!!

    That's definitely protein. I've distilled many beers, but never used anti-foam and never had significant precipitate. The system "pukes" at first- foam fills everything and you get beer in the foreshots but never had any problems with clogging. We would just save all early distillate/puke and redistill it.
