  3. LP Boiler

    Hello Everyone, Business partner is shopping for a 15 Hp boiler for our start up, and has been getting so much information that it is now starting to get confusing, one product that stands out is the Sellers Boiler that has many features, the big one claims that no chemical treatment is required, in addition to other features that some of the major manufactures don't have. Is anyone on this Forum using this boiler ? lots of questions, like are there spare parts recommended to purchase ahead of time? does the spare parts come under this thing is going to break down in the middle of a spirit run ! Some manufacturers we have quotes from have a list of 14 items that up the cost to over $2k ! Thanks Lorenzo
  4. LP Boiler

    Hey HottyToddy Thanks, quick question, does the BDS separator that is specified on Sellers equipment take the place of a blowdown tank, does your system have this or a larger separator ?does it in fact cool the blowdown to enter a normal sewer drain.

    Silk, I agree most of the spare parts are available overnight, the vendors are seeking extra $$ at time of sale, Which doesn’t surprise me. Thanks everyone 😄

  8. Hi everyone, We are a startup and have now gotten serious about sourcing our distillery equipment,several people A vendor we have talked with suggested a combo mash cooker and stripping still,can anyone chime in on the advantages other than some initial saving from buying one less piece of equipment, my concern is this unit will not achieve a high enough abv for the spirit run. Would a still just for stripping be more advantageous?Thanks, Lorenzo

  12. Steam Boiler Requirements

    Boiler Guy I'm new to distilling and hav began sourcing equipment, the we have decided upon a 300 gal pot still and a 500 gal Mash cooker, the proposed still manufactuer states that we will need at least a low pressure, 800,000 btu boiler. I have been searching the net for references coming up dry we don't have plans to run the pot still and the Mash cooker at the same time, would the recommended btu be somewhat excessive

  15. Adjusting Proof in Liqueurs

    Hi Everyone following this topic, I limited experience with distilling and proofing from college days but I have seen other attempts of software for distilled spirits relating proofing and I must say nothing I've seen can compete with Katmar. I would like to try it out once it's completed and available.

  17. Tasting Rooms

    We will be opening our distillery in Florida and are trying to decide how much of a taste we will give to visitors,does anyone know if there are regulations on this? I can't find anything on it in the Florida Statutes covering distillery's I have visited a couple of distillery's who give a small drink and also sample taste of other spirits for visitors who take their tour. Thought I would start here on the Forums before I just call a Florida distiller and ask what they are doing.......
  18. Tasting Rooms

    Great info, I have seen the freeloaders in action, charging a tour fee and tasting is good idea.

  20. Hi Everyone, My Name is Ron, partner and I have began construction on our distillery building, (shell only) at this time, seeking advise and or schematic layout for connection of boiler and chiller to mash tun, fermenters and of course still, we have tried talking with local Architects, unfortunately they don't seem to have a clue about the mechanical part of the distillation process, and persons that they have referred us to have been very expensive Architects in the Northeast, does anyone have a website or maybe refer me to someone that can give me the basics on how to design steam and chiller lines etc. with some examples??? Thanks, Ron
