  1. Assistant Distiller at Estate Distillery

    Surely this was written by committee. Am the only one that thinks Is unrealistic for an "assistant"?
  2. Motors for agitators and pumps

    Or just ask for forgiveness and not permission....
  3. Totes for grain disposal

    Same here. You'll go crazy dealing with that little 8" opening.
  4. DYE China?

    How exactly?
  5. 100% Flaked Grain Mash

    Out of curiosity, have you ever had a 100% wheat spirit?
  6. Trade BTC for Paypal USD

    That's sounds like a super honest and good deal. I can't think of a single way this coudl go wrong.
  7. 100% Flaked Grain Mash

    Well.... the good part w/ flaked grains is that the mash has already been done for you (there is a difference between steam rolled and flaked grains, the former is usually for animal feed) so they're easy to use. The bad part is that they're very expensive compared their whole-grain counterpart. For grains that gel in the beer-brewing temp range, I really don't think there is any advantage to flakes over grain but Im more than willing to be proven wrong.
  8. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    $2k plus my time. A lot more if it doesn't work. I was the one who posted the "nooks and crannies" question. Still very valid. I just cant imagine cross contaminating boiler feed water and glycol/water mixture is a good thing if you went the cool-with-the-steam-jacket solution. Leaning toward a tube/shell solution as this point.
  9. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    I say your constant hijacking of threads to flog your equipment is offputting. If you have comments or thoughts on my CSST approach to cooling I'd like to hear them. I'll simply ignore non-related posts.
  10. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    I gotta hand it to you, you never miss the chance for the hard sell. But honestly, I don't give a toss about a new mash tun, I have one of those. Can we redirect responses to my OP?
  11. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    As they say, if there's no picture it didnt happen.
  12. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    Im curious how that's possible 500 gallons from corn gel temp to malt temp needs nearly a quarter-millon BTUs of cooling. In five mins that would be impressive.
  13. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    That's what I assumed, but, well, you know what happens when one assumes... About 2 seconds after I posted my "knooks and crannies" comment I remembers our tun has CIP ball in it which should take care of much (most?) of the cleaning.
  14. Mash Tun Cooling: Part Deux

    I can imagine that getting clogged w 3/4" tubes. What do you mean it's a "4 pass". If we go with my idea, I'm a bit concerned about cleaning as the corrugated tubing approach would introduce many knooks & crannies.
