  1. All i went with the professional grade housing after talking to Michael of TCW. i got the 30" but am using my 10" filters i used on enolmaster on it. it works better than that italian piece of $h!t Call michael i never met anyone that know so much about filtration, trust me all my filtering needs he is on speed dial thanks Michael and TCW
  2. i do everything by weight and not by volume, for one it takes the temperature out of the equation. Your argument on evaporation is also very valid. i just want a check and balance to my recipe. Sugar is a pain in the ass to work with. i use alcodens now for creating my recipe and it gets me dialed in but would like to see how close. i just figured a lab with a dma 4500 could quickly test and email me the results. i just dont want to drop $45K on my own alcolyzeR
  3. is there a service out there from a lab that you can send a sample of a batch and they give you a certified result for what your aBV is after adding sugar. This redistilling in a lab still is getting old.
  4. good information to know
  5. for high spirits you will need the pyrex version the plastic one will crumble as the spirits will cause it to delaminate. What do you mean by pics of the area? The glass / pyrex breaks very easily. i would like to get a stainless housing filer to put in line but done know which one will work with this system
  6. 3 times the F@$#@$ thing has cracked on me. Sh!+ cost a fortune each time to replace. is there another inline filter that will work with my enolmaster?

    White Whiskey

    rum does not require an age statement
  8. how much for the rinser sparger and flow meter
  9. 30% glycol or 30% abv Heads/foreshots seems like it will do the the same. Glelyon, how many gallons is your cooling vessel and how low have you gotten the temp on it?
  10. yeah he has been doing it for years and swears by it.
  11. i recently visited a vodka distillery here in the Great State, and the owner was telling me they put their foreshots and heads in their cold water tank in place of glycol. Anyone else out there doing this? Recommended? i really don't see why not, but i will let the more experienced chime in
  12. too complex for me i was more curious if anyone else was doing this
  13. See email below i received following a phone call. Basically they will have lavender fields and want to harvest them and distill them in to oils. As this is a special needs community they are looking to contract out to a distillery. I dont know anything about it, is this something that will harm my still? last thing i want is lavender smelling bourbon thoughts??? George, Thank you so much for speaking with me this morning. I really, really appreciate it! First let me tell you about myself. I just finished my masters at A&M where I studied plant breeding. I accepted a job back in May and have been here for 3 weeks now! Wow, off to a running start! We are looking into branching out into agrotourism. A lavender field has been a dream of our founders for some time, and it is my goal to bring that dream to reality. Our citizens are eager for a new project and I believe that this is a good route to take to broaden their horizons. We are hoping to grow and harvest the lavender with help from our citizens, to then have distilled by a third party so that the citizens can then in turn make lotions and soaps to be sold in our gift shop. We are dreaming big here, I know this can be done, I just need a great support system to help make it happen. Please let me know if this would be possible, with your facility being so close, this is a very reasonable solution for us. I would love to meet and be able to talk about this more in dept. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
  14. So my findings, we charged the still with 600 gallons of low wines from our fermenter and heated still to about 202° F and our copper column which is 18" in diameter and 5 plates. We used all 5 and it was slower than hell. We did not use the deplagemator. Our initial runnings started to come out around 180 proof after about 6 gallons it dropped to about 160 proof and over about 6 hours we stopped collecting at 110 proof. This was a very long distillation but product came out with desired taste but not volume.
  15. Silk City so what you are saying is run the dephlag all plates then shut off deflag and bypass the plates for pot still whiskey helmet only? Curious how long do you run the refluxing for when you go this route? i mean how do you know when it is time to switch over to pot? i been experimenting with my still to see what she's got. i ran batch bypassing column, ran one with 1 , 2, 4 and today will do five plates. i am not good at the dephlag refluxing part. not a lot of information out there. i trained on one but did not get as much out of the training as i would have liked.
