  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. We will run out of storage space relatively quickly for storing barrels. Does anyone know whether a elf storage facility would be allowed as bonded space for barrel storage? Thanks in advance.
  4. storing full barrels vertically ? anyone have an opinion?

    We visited Bowman's distillery in Virginia. They store vertically. They said they actually have less loss to angel's she because all the staves stay hydrated. Whereas on their sides, staves on the top tend to dry and create gaps.
  5. What part of the Business Plan did you struggle with?

    The hardest part for us has been making realistic financial assumptions. I am a PhD in finance...but man...finding sales data for micro-distillers is non-existent. So we have had to back into all kinds of SWAGS (super wild ass guesses). I mean everything drives off your assumed production levels which will be driven by demand.
  6. Metal labels- woodinville

    Anyone know who makes the metal labels for Woodinville reserve or Russell’s Reserve. Or do you know of a company that makes metal emblems or labels?
  7. 4 head bottle filler

  8. Mash to whiskey in single run

    We will be operating a four plate column still. How many of you are doing single runs from mash to final product? If so, where do you make your cuts on the back end for tails?
  9. Plate and Frame Filtration

    Any recommendations on cartridge filtration...on a shoestring budget.
  10. Plate and Frame Filtration

    Anyone use plate and frame filters for their products? If so, any recommendations?

  12. Just getting ready to put together our TTB DSP application. I have read many of your horror stories on how long it takes to get the operating permit. I know there are several firms that assist folks like me on crafting and submitting the application. Has anyone used a service like this? Is it worth the money? We're talking $2500 to $3000. But if they can save months of downtime while I'm still having to pay a lease....might be worth it. How daunting is the whole application process? Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  13. 300 gallon new Still for sale

    Hambone: Where are you located?
  14. Rum Setback

    It makes great fertilizer/soil amender. See if local farmer,landscaping co., or even the county want it as a liquid fertilizer.
  15. Barrel Mill barrel quality

    Thanks blue star.
