  2. Sediment in finished bottles

    Are you rinsing the bottles before you fill them? If so with what? It could be bloom if you don't rinse them.
  3. Joint Venture with local Brewery

    Others can chime in on this but I believe that the key is if the brewery pitches yeast or not. Once yeast is pitched it becomes something different to transfer as it would be considered beer at that point and tax would have to be paid. I'm doing the same thing with a brewery down the street from me. They will do my mashing but I will pitch yeast and ferment at my DSP. For wort it's considered raw material like grains.
  4. Canned Cocktails?

    Ignore that one, it was not a spirit. This one is: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicDisplaySearchBasic&ttbid=15062001000306 Class/Type Code: RUM SPECIALTIES And a couple others: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicDisplaySearchBasic&ttbid=13247001000260 https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicDisplaySearchBasic&ttbid=15065001000339 https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicDisplaySearchBasic&ttbid=15065001000341 Ok, I have a template. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

    Maybe this from Ballast Point: https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicDisplaySearchBasic&ttbid=15177001000234 Class/Type Code: MALT BEVERAGES SPECIALITIES - FLAVORED
  6. Canned Cocktails?

    The brewery that is doing my mashing has a canner. That's more my reason for checking into it. If it's available I should at least do some investigation.
  7. Canned Cocktails?

    Cool, thanks for the info. I think I would call it a cordial/liqueur for TTB purposes? Or am I missing something? (cause that is likely) (h) Class 8; cordials and liqueurs. Cordials and liqueurs are products obtained by mixing or redistilling distilled spirits with or over fruits, flowers, plants, or pure juices therefrom, or other natural flavoring materials, or with extracts derived from infusions, percolation, or maceration of such materials, and containing sugar, dextrose, or levulose, or a combination thereof, in an amount not less than 21⁄2 percent by weight of the finished product.
  8. Canned Cocktails?

    Anyone doing this? What is your experience with it? Good/bad/etc? How does one legally make a canned cocktail? I ask as I will have access to a canning line. It seems like a waste to ignore the possibility.

    If you search the forums you'll see the technical details on the transaction for the TTB. It's simple. Good luck!
  10. Bottle Filler questions

    As in: Is this https://morewinemaking.com/products/wine-bottle-filler-deluxe-5-spout.html accurate enough to ward off any TTB issues? Or do I need to go full fledged Mori/XpressFill?
  11. Bottle Filler questions

    Starting to look into bottle fillers. Volumetric, level, etc. I'm looking for 4-6 bottles at a time. - Biggest question is: What is least likely to get me in trouble with a TTB audit? - Level vs Volumetric: For aesthetics I would prefer the level, but is it a real issue with the Volumetric? - Any best practices for reliable, repeatable & accurate process? - Any other knowledge you can impart? Thanks everyone
  12. Industry news/research websites/magazines?

    Excellent list, thanks!
  13. ACSA Convention

    Then I'll be there, thanks! Edit: Just signed up. For anyone else interested you have to call them to avoid having to sign up for the convention itself.
  14. ACSA Convention

    So they do have sort of a floor pass - It's $145, though it's for a single day only. Odd. I would love to do the "Architecture/Design of a Physical Facility (Distillery)" class but I'm not spending $825 (non-member) on top of the $425 (non-member) for it. If I could pay for the class without anything else I would do it in a heartbeat.
  15. Proof affecting oxidation in barrels?

    Well there you go, science! And he just wrote that too. Thanks JustAndy, that helps a lot!
