  3. Hi All, Is anyone using Nitrogen or CO to clean minor dust out of spirit bottles, pro's /con's If you are using it how are you introducing it ? short blast with a hand held device like an air gun with an extended tip/nozzle? or is there a bench top device that the bottle could be pushed down on ? Thanks Lorenzo
  4. Sandytoes, I'm in touch with the Mettler Rep, their unit is looking pretty good price wise, saves about $800.00 over Snap 51. seems like a pretty good product, I'm also looking for comparisons to Anton Par Lorenzo
  5. Hi Everyone, Well we are searching for a POS system for our tasting room, there so darn many of them ! and the sales people will tell you it will even take out the garbage just to close a sale ! those of you that have tasting rooms please comment on what you are using and if long term contracts are required, and how the credit card processing is handled. Thanks ......Lorenzo

    Barrel dump tank?

    Hey Lenny, I've been looking for one also, there is a Still company, i think its Specialized or Specific or something like that they brought one to an ADI conference a couple years ago, but way out of my price range !!!, found a couple of used pump over tanks that are used in the wine industry on Brew Bids but they both sold before i could pull the trigger, I still looking, but if anyone could build one it would be Paul !
  8. Thanks everyone, all of you were very helpful, Bluestar you you nailed it, the person I spoke with at TTB essentially same the same thing if it stays in production , but questioned my process to make the GIN, my product will state distilled from grain, (if they approve it !! 😁) Lorenzo
  9. Hi All, Recently submitted an application For COLA approval, for our Gin, on the first go we were told to make corrections , a commodity statement was needed, so on the back label we inserted 100% neutral spirits distilled from grain, we were rejected and told by the reviewer that we will need an approved formula ! I’m confused we are using our own Vodka, and botanicals by vapor infusion. I’m not embarrassed to say that I’m new to distilling, but someone correct me I can find nothing online on the requirement for a formula for botanical Gin. What should appear on the label for a commodity statement.? Maybe “distilled from grain” Thanks. Lorenzo
  10. Hi Skaalvenn, Starcat Great info, Skaa, what is the system that you are using, are all the components from same company, I have been shopping California Air, Chicago Pneumatic and a few others, cost is up there and I'm pricing a 18 CFm @175psi system.
  11. Hi There, Having recently purchased a pneumatic bottle filler and air compressor with Coalescing type filter, and will be using food grade lubrication,we have been told by the company that installed the unit that we should have an air dryer for our compressor as the filter will not be enough to keep condensate etc from ending up in the spirits ! Can anyone give me some advice on this, are most of you using an Air Dryer refrigerated or other wise in connection with your bottling line? Thanks
  12. We recently sealed our concrete floor ourselves by doing the following, first although we have a new floor concrete floor we washed the floor squeegeed to remove the dust etc. Rented a Clark machine from HD bought a series of high grit pads, re wet the floor and scarified the entire floor( 5000 sf )used both a vacuum and squeegee to remove all the water and cement residue, after a few days of drying time we applied a clear floor sealer aliphatic urethane by using garden sprayer and 12 inch low nap roller made for use with urethane. It will be ok to walk on in 24 hours, we applied a second coat same process only rolling it in the opposite direction, we now have a clear mat finish that although will show scuff marks, should last at least 5 years and the best part it won’t peel off the floor , We Hope ! lorenzo
  13. Hi, shopping for barrel racks and found some on NT. That look good and the same price as some of the used wine barrel racks . Just curious to see if anyone is using them and if the design makes a difference when moving or stacking with your.fork lift. Thanks. Lorenzo
