    My experience with Corson Distilling

    The problem is not simply the equipment that they were building. It's the guys behind the company. Their attitude towards business and customers is their true downfall IMHO. Fixing the equipment issues doesn't fix the people issues.

    Formula approval for Spiced Rum Required?

    Many spiced rums are formula approved as distilled spirits specialty.
  3. I notice that you have a target mass set to one value. Do you adjust that during the bottling run? We take the density before each test of the fill and the spreadsheet calculates the target mass for that read. I've never figured out how much a change in proof during the bottling run will impact the target weight. Not even sure it's worthwhile but we get the density when we take the proof anyway. So I just added it into the spreadsheet as well.
  4. Thanks Michael. This was designed by Alex whom you have spoken to on occasion.

    Bottling line help

    New thread started with pics.
  6. As requested I have attached pics of the mod we made to our Mori filler so that we can fine tune the fill height better than the standard setup allows. This filler works great for us now that we have it dialed in and have staff that know how to use it properly.

    Bottling line help

    Since you are ready to move on from the Mori I probably shouldn't even post this! But I will anyway in case it helps someone else having issues with a Mori. We had issues with short bottles that we were filling for someone else. Ended up solving it by building a wood platform that sat on the metal Mori platform. The key to getting consistent bottle level fills with the Mori is to make certain that the bottle pushes the sleeve above the oval opening. That was the only way we could get the bottle high enough to push the sleeve up far enough. We also modified our Mori by adding infinite adjustability on the platform by welding in screws that raise and lower the level of the bottle platform. We can now fine tune the fill height to a very accurate level. I will be happy to post pics if anyone is interested. We fill 3 - 4 thousand bottles per week all year around on our little Mori.

    Sourcing Molasses

    Piece of cake actually. We order by the truck but pump it into totes when it arrives. We have cardboard with a hole cut in the center that sits on top of each tote to make cleanup easy. The hose from the truck is moved from tote to tote. We fill 16 - 17 totes on average from one truck but that can vary. As long as you have a forklift and the a vehicle to carry totes of molasses it really won't be that difficult.

    T Top (Bartop) issue

    Are they experiencing any temperature changes? Cold liquor when bottling then placed in a warm warehouse or something along those lines?

    BIB Bag In Box Supplier

    Here are a few more: http://www.scholleipn.com/beverage/wine/ https://www.liquibox.com/industry/wine/ I had a successful search by using "wine bag in a box suppliers". Or "bib wine bag". Are you going to get a machine to fill the or contract that part out? Just curious - what are you looking at putting in the bags?

    Blue tint

    Copper sulfate? Some industrial producers will add that to spirits to make up for not using good clean copper stills. It starts out blue.

    6-Pack Boxes / Partitions

    Have you checked with your bottle manufacturer to see if they will ship in six packs? Our bottle manufacturer custom prints our boxes in six or twelve packs. There might be a minimum order, but you won't have to pay for extra boxes. They show up with logos ready to go. We use one upc code as a default on the boxes and have stickers to cover with other product upc codes based on what goes in them.
