    steam eductors

    morning was wondering if anyone has any opinion and suggestion about steam eductors for steam injection into mash tun . just for reference the boiler is 15 hp low pressure steam . thanks tim

    Mash Tun not Heating

    our jacketed baine marie has to have the air bled off every time we use it to get the max out of the jacket , seems when the jacket cools the vapour break sucks in air and needs to be bled off .

    Mash Tun not Heating

    would you gain anything by steam injecting your mash tun to max out the efficiency of the boiler

    Recommended fabricator for firebox

    silk i would have thought they would jus get sucked in and burn but that makes sense they would track back to the source . so explain how do they run wood fired stills like the one at victoria spirits . there are alot of wood fired stills that have the fire box under the still . tim

    Recommended fabricator for firebox

    dont know about down there but i watched a video from BC and the guy had a wood burning german made still in his distillery . in some ways wouldnt it be safer , if there was a vapour leak it would get drawn into the stove and burned instead of building up and pooling into a huge explosive vapour puddle waiting for a spark . i guess if the kettle ruptured that would be different but i dont think anyone has mash high proof enough to burn . if you do build it make sure you share pics id love to see it . tim

    Mashing technique: oil reduction

    here a plan for u let your feints, low wines or high wines cool in a open top vessel , all oily stuff should float to surface , once its floating lay paper towel on top and let it float , all the oils will stick to paper towel , drain the vessel from bottom and leave the oil soaked paper towel behind , alcohol will drain out of the paper towel and the oil will remain in the paper towel . not telling u why i know this lol kim

    unfermentables

    morning was wondering if anyone has a method to determine how much if any un fermentable sugars are in a mash , other than pitching and seeing what the yeast uses .

    unfermentables

    thanks tom starch tests are fine conversions are fine with starting gravity at 70 points , just curious if there was a way of figure out if the 70 points of sugar are all fermentable sugars .

    On Grain or Off Grain

    well noted silk were talking about a 600 gallon zero tank.... up here the only tanks that are cost efficient are milk tanks . we ll just have to try it and see if there enough steam power to keep it moving . thanks tim

    On Grain or Off Grain

    is anyone mashing and distilling on grain using steam injection with out agitator , relying on steam mixing educators . if so how many pounds of steam are you pushing thru to get good agitation . tim

    Continuous Starch Cooking

    silk that sounds brilliant , hope it works out for you . how are you going to know how many pounds of grain goes thru . tim

    Distillery in Canada, can you make your own still?

    paul is exactly right however he is missing the fact that by the time you add shipping and duty and exchange its not such a deal . im not starting a fight paul but the exchange and shipping out of the states now is unreal . i suggest to ya elexer try and source as much as u can from the dairy industry . tim

    Estimating yield for business planning purposes

    another way of looking at it is 10% abv is 10 gallons of absolute alcohol per hundred units, gallons or liters . 10 gallons of absolute is 20 gallons of barrel proof at 50 % abv , 20 gallons times 4.5 gives you 90 liters of barrel proof , times 1000 gives you 90000 ml divide by 750 ml per bottle equals 120 bottles at 40%abv or ten cases ......leaving 10 %abv for margin of error . thats a quick rough calculation . tim

    Continuous Column Distillation

    pete our over flow is same it draws off bottom , our thinking was it would be pulling off the bottom where there should be the least chance of any alcohol remaining in bottoms product . tim

    thanks pete thats what iwas wondering if u were running floats or just a overflow . tim

    Continuous Column Distillation

    pete , how are you regulating the level of bottoms product in your reboiler . do you have a float inside or a over flow system . were having problems maintaining a constant level in the bottoms kettle . any info would be great tim
