    Looking for a scale....

    Oh I found one from Mettler-Toledo. Suffice it to say it was out of our budget. 1 lb in 1000 is all you're going to get for under $1k. The shitty part is that they'll tell you the display is down to .1 lb -- is that just a random number generator??
  4. A picture of the open crates would go a long way toward selling this.

    Only because I had never seen one that did 600! This is perfect. Thanks!

    Looking for a scale....

    I looked at the optima scales site and i don't believe they have a scale whose load cells have a 1/10th lb resolution. And that's a problem since the displays certainly can show tenths. I'm troubled by this.

    What's the load accuracy / resolution?

    A wise man (cough, cough, DUNBAR!) once told me, and I'm paraphrasing, to throw the BAM in the shitter. It's neither USC nor CFR but rather a document that causes more confusion than answer especially when it's not in agreement with the CFR. Edit: Apologies to the OP as I've hijacked your post
  11. The exact same way the requirement for new oak got in the CFR in 1935

    Regarding Hendricks, if they can manage that flavor profile through pure distillation or redistillation I'll buy everyone a round of drinks. Clearly their label states "distilled" to which I play my bullshit right bower. That cuke flavor must be from compounding. I've tried for the cucumber flavor to zero success. I believe @Silk City Distillers has done some rotovap work with it with some success.

    Ahhhh. You've not experienced the vagaries of the TTB COLA group. I believe that when compounding a gin the producer should place, on the front label, the term "Compounded Gin". We do have "redistilled gin" on our label. Many who I know redistill have "distilled" on the label. Shrug. Hopefully @dhdunbar will chime in here regarding exact labeling requirements. Notwithstanding, I'm fairly certain you'd be limited to the back label for the phrase you mention (a good one if I might say so myself).
