  1. New DSP in Ohio

    Congrats John! My wife is from Marion OH so next time we are visiting family in the area we'll have to try to stop by!
  2. Collection Tank

    Open with locking lids!
  3. Stillhouse Vs. Whiskey Systems

    I said it above and I'll say it again, you owe it to yourself to also investigate Hoochware. Price/features/support, Hoochware excels in all 3, we love it.
  4. Collection Tank

    Yep, stainless. We got our 30 gallon drums from Janszen Products in Cincinnati.
  5. Collection Tank

    How much are you talking about? We use a combination of 55 and 30 gallon SS drums (open top, lids with locking rings). Our bigger drums are equipped with wheels and we have all of our 30 gallon drums on movers dollies. Easy to get onto our floor scale for recording weights.
  6. Southernhighlander, I think you may be too personally invested in the moonshine culture to appreciate Roger's point. I, like Hedgebird, made a conscious decision to avoid calling our white whiskey moonshine. The term moonshine means a lot of things to a lot of people around here, not all of them positive. While I appreciate a good moonshine, I also see a lot of shortcuts taken by some who simply purchase GNS, create dozens of flavor options and throw it in a mason jar. People seem to love it, especially the non-whiskey connoisseurs (trust me, you don't want to be at a tasting event right next to the moonshine guy and try to get non whiskey drinkers to appreciate your aged whiskey right after sampling a variety of apple pie, strawberry panty dropper, pink lemonade, etc). Moonshines definitely have their place in the craft world, Roger's point was simply (I think) that including "shiner" in your name may very well prejudice the craft consumer you are trying to capture?
  7. Mashing Off Site

    I've heard of others doing this. As long as you pitch the yeast I don't believe there is a problem. I would imagine you'll have to get the weights of grains used in the mash as they are required in your monthly TTB Production Reports.
  8. Bourbon Mash and Malt (DP)

    Hey BigRed, glad to hear you are continuing to make progress. We do not use enzymes in any of our mash bills. Yes, the malt ratio is necessarily higher (and more expensive) but we like the flavor that malt adds to our whiskeys.
  9. New equipment

    Trident Stills in Etna Maine. Excellent product and customer service.
  10. From final decision to go for it until first distillation was 16 months, 18 months until opened doors to public. At least 6 or 7 years of thinking about it until we decided to go for it.
  11. New oak barrels southeast PA

    Wilson Forest Products is an awesome place. It's in Greene County PA and we've visited there a couple times. Unfortunately, at the time we visited, he was basically producing bigger barrels for the European wine market and the smallest barrel he produced was 250 liters.
  12. MicroDistiller in southern New Mexico

    Best of luck and good wishes! Welcome.
  13. You can do this through Permits Online. Click on "Create Amendment" associated with your DSP and then choose "Amended DSP" and then choose "DSP Receiving Spirits or Denatured Spirits by Transfer in Bond".
  14. Boiling point adjusted for elevation

    Temperature is only one parameter we consider when making cuts. Proof, smell, taste can't be discounted. Some products we go deeper into the tails, others not so much. You can and should consider many different things when making cuts.
  15. Storage of low wines

    We use 30 and 55 gallon SS barrels. We have all of the 30 gallon barrels sitting on movers dolly's so it's easy to roll them onto our floor scale, the 55 gallon barrels have integrated wheels. Since we don't have room for a forklift, these smaller drums work really well for us.
