    Marchisio tanks

    Hey Silk City, Would you mind sharing who you got them through and how you got the changes in them that you mentioned, a pic would be great, but no worries if that his too much of a hassle? I'm currently looking through a local wine shop and they have them for about 550$ for the 300 L, which seems like a pretty great deal. Thanks for the reply.

    Marchisio tanks

    Does anyone have any experience with Marchisio tanks? They are available in 100, 200, and 300 liter sizes, and pretty reasobably priced. The only down side I can tell is that the spigot on the bottom is 3/4 inch. Does anyone have any thoughts on this. Again, we're are small scale and looking for something for small batch/R &D type stuff. Thanks
  3. Thanks KillBuck. I'll swing by next time I'm down your way.
  4. Thanks everyone. Appreciate the feedback.
  5. So this may sound like an odd question, but we received our federal permit, and have not received our State yet (Ohio). The state has been submitted, but still in process. So this the question: Can we make small batches for Research purposes without the intent to sell? If so, just pay the federal tax on it? Please let me know your thoughts if you have any ideas. Many thanks, Curt
  6. Just submitted ours yesterday! hoping Moonshine scenario above is the new norm- 72 days! but not holding my breathe! ---- Update. We just received approval! 13 days! There is hope!!!! Thanks TTB! Lets make some BOOZE!
  7. Thanks again. I love government regs.
  8. Thanks dh. So just to clarify... If we are permitted beverage, and we intend to make only beverage spirits, we need to purchase and register with a producer of GNS who has beverage permitting. Not someone selling GNS with an industrial permit.
  9. Thanks kk, This makes a lot more sense now. I found the form you mentioned as TTB 5100.16. We would just fill this out with the GNS provider and submit to TTB after receiving our DSP. Much appreciated, Curt
  10. Does anyone have any knowledge of a specific part of the DSP application process that is specifically related to GNS or NGS? One of our owners spoke with a gentlemen during a distillery tour and he mentioned something about a specific permit from the feds when using GNS. I talked with a rep from the TTB today, and she didn't seem to be aware of this, and mentioned that if using GNS as well as mashing from scratch (we plan to use both techniques at different stages), that we may have to apply for the permit as both a beverage and an industrial permit? Does that sound right? Does anyone have an answer for this or some insight? It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense that we would need to apply as an for an industrial permit if we are simply purchasing GNS and then making GIN by running it through our stills with the additives. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Curt
  11. Thanks Tim. We are in Northeast Ohio. Appreciate all your suggestions. Stumpy's tun is a little too big but hopefully someone else will post something. I like your mash tun/ still idea... I'll keep looking
  12. Thanks NJ, Our plan is also to use a similar scenario to reuse our cooling water and recycle what we can. Our current still wont work for mashing, so we are going to have to come up with a separate piece of equip for that. Appreciate it.
  13. Hi Tim, we currently have a 75 gallon capacity. any ideas
  14. Hello, Had a lot of success looking for a used still, so thought I would give it a try for the other essentials. Looking for a smallish mash tun (<200 gallons), some simple fermenters, and a filtration unit. Also open to suggestions on cheap alternatives (i.e., is anyone actually using Brute food grade plastic containers for fermentation?). We are definitely bootstrapping this process, so open to all ideas or items you might have. Thanks for your creativity and your comments/items if you have them. Cheers,
