  1. How does one properly record materials received via TIB? We bought GNS and I'm struggling to figure out how to record in on the different reports. Processing Operations 5110.28 I put it only on line 2C of the "Spirits" column, then again on 29C (On hand end of month), Production Operations 5110.4 I have no idea what to put on here. I believe that I don't put anything as I didn't "product" it. Though I have no idea if that is correct. There is a TIB column but I think that's for sending not receiving. Storage Operations 5110.11 No clue on this one too. Put into bulk storage? The help for "Processing" form says 2C comes from line 17 of this form. I would assume for GNS it would be 17i? Thanks in advance!
  2. For the TTB what do they require from you? I assume testing for quinine. If so do you have them do it or do you? I'm finding lots of amaro/bitters recipes that call for it.

  4. I'm putting my list of distilling botanical and herb suppliers here. Find them was a pain, I have no idea why. Most spice places are more culinary than distilling I guess. One warning - watch the shipping costs. Some are notorious for ridiculous shipping costs for normal shipping. If you have found any please post up and make everyone's life easier. If an admin sees this can you make it a sticky so it's easier to find. https://herbco.com/ - AKA Monterey Bay Spice Co. https://lhasakarnak.com/ https://www.esutras.com/ https://www.myspicesage.com/ https://www.spicejungle.com https://www.mountainroseherbs.com https://www.starwest-botanicals.com https://www.pennherb.com/ https://www.dandelionbotanical.com https://foodsofnations.com/product-category/spiceseaoning/ I also use Amazon for things that I need quick or very small amounts.
  5. Does storage in a stainless steel container count against the MAQ? I know wood barrels are sometime one or the other, but the explanation on the Dalika page make it sound like any storage, despite the type of container, work towards the MAQ.
  6. Yeah I already tried that... ha
  7. Thanks everyone. I guess I will deal with it.
  8. And it was approved. Given than yesterday was a federal holiday yesterday it took less than 1 business day. I guess the serial number wasn't an issue.
  9. Awesome thanks. That worked for the "Application for Distilled Spirit Plant (Beverage and Industrial)" Answer Yes to the question above and No to the rest. It will take you to the next screen. It will have a TON of options. Chose this one: Then the next screen will be the current details of your operation. I didn't change anything and only hit "Continue" The next screen will have the TIB. Serial Number - Looking at the original PDF I see serial number is YYYY-X where X is the number of TIBs you've submitted. So your first TIB is 1, etc etc. So I'm filling out my serial number as 2020-1. I'm not 100% sure on this so if this is wrong let other people know. I added the info and clicked "Submit". Then clicked "Continue" at the bottom of this page. It went to the "Attachments" screen. There's none required that I saw. I clicked "Continue". It went to the "Declarations" screen. I clicked the box, it added the date by itself. I clicked "Continue". It went to the "Review" screen. I looked at it quickly and then clicked "Continue". It went to the "Application package" screen. I clicked "Submit Application Package". Since I didn't have any bond required it went to the "Submission Confirmation" Hopefully this will help other people that are in my position. This is why we should share info even on the "simple stuff".
  10. The other one says this: Is it the last one here?
  11. How does one submit a Transfer in Bond online? I thought I did it but now I can't see it. I go to PONL: I see two records : "Application for Original Entity" and "Application for Distilled Spirit Plant (Beverage and Industrial)" I click "Create Amendment" None of these look right to me. Is there something I'm missing?
  12. Thanks. My OCD appreciates it... ha
  13. I have a couple things that I'm not completing but I can't figure out how to make them go away. Can anyone enlighten me? I have a need to be neat for these types of things.
  14. The issue is that it's about chemistry. No book will be able to cover what you want to know. You're going to be searching for scientific papers like Silk City posted or experimenting. The chemistry of your spirits and the wood of the barrel and the effect of environment will yield different results. Learn to record observations really well. Keep track of as many variables as you practically can. That book was the biggest let down I've had. It really was useless.
  15. For the big guys they aim for ~440ml per kg. Brian Zeno from the Still Talking podcast talks about it on one of the episodes (not sure which one).
