    Contract Production

    I thought you were talking about much larger volumes.

    Contract Production

    Get the FET paid before any bottled product leaves your bonded premises. Set up an escrow account and have the Government's money wired there in order to keep it segregated from your operating account. Set clear terms on accounts receivable and don't let them get behind, whether bottling or just distilling. If bottling make sure that all the packaging materials you are receiving are on premise before you start. Unless you are set up for R&D have the customer do it and tell you exactly what they want. Have them sign off on formula and sample. Do what they tell you to do instead of doing the R&D and giving advice. You don't want to be tweaking a formula forever. And you don't want to hear, "if you made it better, it would have sold better."

    Pregnant Distiller

    Does anyone have any experience with what physical restrictions that a physician might place on a distiller while she is pregnant? Obviously, there are the basics, i.e. lifting etc.. I am specifically wondering about vapor exposure. I have an HR consultant so I'm not asking about legal exposure or requirements.

    Warehouse Size

    If I were building a warehouse to store whiskey barrels, what is the maximum size that the IBC will allow it to be built? Assume construction type llB and occupancy H3. I have plenty of consultants but I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has run into a maximum warehouse size before.

    Tennessee Process

    You are going to need a non resident seller permit from the ABC, then get a distributor, then register your product with the Department of Revenue. You will have to tell the Department of Revenue who your distributor is when you register the brand.

    Corn Starch Content

    I have been getting some very low gravity (1.03-1.038). I have evaluated everything and narrowed the problem to a few things. One is my corn. I buy it from a local supplier. It is #2 Dent. I have had the corn analized and it came back 55.3% starch. I have always been told that starch content of corn was 70% or greater. My question: Does the 70% include something else, like non convertable material that increases the starch content. Is my lab giving me just analysis of the fermentable material ? Anyone with detailed knowledge out there that can tell me this is ok? Or do I just have some crap corn? Mike
