    Is it absinthe

    I appreciate the info. I does taste like absinthe though. I have compared it to two us brands and the flavor is similar. I am using wormword, anise and fennel alongside 5 other herbs with anise being the main flavor. Not bringing it to market soon, just starting to experiment.

    Is it absinthe

    Ok, but if it’s not absinthe, what is it?
  4. If I just do a maceration of absinthe botanicals and don’t redistill, what is it. It has the flavor of absinthe but most recipes call for a redistillation over botanicals, is that required? I has a dark brown color after filtering out the botanicals.

    reducing mixer noise

    Thanks for all the help guys! I installed a vfd on it and the motor is much quieter. Unfortunately, now I have motor whine because of the vfd. I have tried raising the carrier frequency but at 11 it is still whining and I'm worried about pushing it above that. I read something about skip function but don't really understand it or if it will help. I have also heard I could install a rubber vibration isolation pad to it. Any other info you guys have I would appreciate. Thanks this is the vfd UPDATED 2.2KW VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVE INVERTER VFD 220V 3HP 10A HIGH QUALITY

    reducing mixer noise

    Sorry for the lack of info, its a electric 3ph motor. I have been running it for over 2.5 years, and its always been loud. Its not a shrieking noise, just sound like a loud electric motor hum. I don't think anything is wrong with it, but I hope it might be something I can fix if there is. If it is working as it should, then I am look to contain the noise. thanks

    reducing mixer noise

    Anyone have ideas on how to reduce the noise from my still mixer/auger. Its very loud and we have a super small distillery with a tasting room at one end. I am trying to make it so I can produce and sell bottles at the same time, its difficult with the mixing blade going. I tried building a plywood box around it and it didn't help much, also tried acrylic. Its also hard to tell if it helped at all, after listening to it all day. Any ideas?

    TTB segregation of Tasting Room

    I had a local distiller tell me that someone from the TTB told him to have his unbounded tasting room listed as an office on the application. Said they can't approve tasting rooms on same premises, but unbonded office is ok and once approved they don't care what you use it for. Sounds crazy, but this is the TTB we're dealing with. Thoughts?

    waste heat

    I use a closed loop through a radiator for my dephlegmator. Works great! Now Im not trying to cool it down to under 100, more like 150, but I think that if you used it in addition to a chiller it could work well.
  12. Do I need to submit anything to add a tasting room on to my distillery? I have been operating for over 2 years, and local laws are changing to allow me to now have a tasting room. I know you have to provide that info in the original plans, just didn't know if you had to resubmit.

    Cloudy Sprit

    I am having similar problems, and I have the abv at 47.5 It was very cold when I proofed it. If it was temp related wouldn't it clear up as it warms?

    reusing carbon

    How many gallons of vodka can you run through your carbon? I think 100gal through 10 lb of carbon and that carbon is spent, my coworker disagrees. I pump through at about .3 gal a minute. Any thoughts?
