  1. Invaluable equipment vs

    Hudson Bay.....I didn’t ask what your most costly investment was?//😜😜
  2. Invaluable equipment vs

    Okay here’s one for the peanut gallery. We are still acquiring our equipment and my question is: what has been the biggest waste of money for a piece of equipment...namely because it was useless. Concersely, what is the most valuable piece of that you may not have initially planned to buy or didn’t realize how useful it would be. Thanks in advance.
  3. Liquor Quik Essences

    Any suggestions on a real ‘flavor house’ ?
  4. Super cheap bottles

    How many to a case for the 750mL?
  5. Cooling Water set up feedback

    Thanks for all the feedback.I came across a video of a distillery that uses a simple car radiator with a fan attached to cool their water. They say their results are that they can get the water to stay around the ambient temperature for two runs a day. Of course, now that I want to share the video with you guys, I can't find it. But will keep looking.
  6. Liquor Quik Essences

    Anyone used Liquor Quik essences for some of the more esoteric flavorings? Just curious as to their taste and quality once you scale up. Thanks in advance.

  8. Cooling Water set up feedback

    I guess we could add a diverter valve to send hot water to separate tank and use that for new mashes or cleaning. That's a good idea. 2 runs a day. won't do mash and runs on same days.
  9. Cooling Water set up feedback

    Folks, Need feedback on my cooling water set up. Due to cost, I want to use a water reservoir for cooling the distillate. On a 250 gallon still with a deplegmator, would a 500 gallon tank of water with a radiator and fan work well? Or...what size water tank would you recommend? Anyone doing same? Thanks in advance.
  10. glycerin

    What is the benefit of adding glycerin to final product? Is this consider as part of total dissolved solids?
  11. Crash Cooling with Ice

    All great feedback. C0mb9ning thought tracks, add ice to the extra water...so instead of 65cdegree water, now I’m in the 40s or 50s and need to use less for the same effect. Although, I’ll have to go look up whether the endothermic properties of water makes this a one to one exchange.
  12. Crash Cooling with Ice

    We are going to be running jacketed 250 and 150 gallon stills. In lieu of a chiller, does anyone have experience crash cooling with ice? Any reason this wouldn’t be ideal? We reduce our initial water in the mash by the amount of ice we’ll add. Once we’ve added malt or amylase and thinned the mash, adding ice to get us to pitching temp as quickly as possible. Thoughts?
  13. 300 gallon steam piped or jacketed with agitation

    Try Affordable Distilling Equipment.
  14. We are going to recirculate water (to conserve) as our cooling water. How do you keep yours from going bad, without damaging water pumps? Could you ass citric acid or bleach? Any other thoughts?
  15. Storing barrels in self storage unit

    We're confined by tenants on either side and the main road. If can't use self-storage, will likely do shipping containers off-site in secured lot.
