  1. Love our gravity feed Mori filler. Cheap and easy
  2. I will send a pick of the tank and you can tell me how long would make sense! I think my still pot needs the same deal. Thx
  3. We are running into issues getting proper temperature readings on our 300 gallon mashtun. We have two thermo ports on the tank and half the time none of them are ever close enough to even read properly. We have one at the top of the tank and one at the front in the middle (about 150 gallons maybe a bit less). We take samples with a scoop and of course when the mash gets to the middle of the tank when adding more grain and water it starts to read, but most of the time we are usually over our target temp and lose out on a lot of the conversion till we add colder water or more grain. Seems like a losing battle. I have tested both thermometers and they both work great. Mashtun is jacketed and heated with steam! Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Would this work for a completely green column (10" with 4 bubble plates)? FCC/USP Grade Citric Acid
  5. I am working on cleaning my column on my still and I can't figure out how to remove the glass from each window in the column. I have the tool which let me unscrew the metal piece, but the glass will not come out. It's really stuck and i don't want to break with using a screw driver of course. Any suggestions? Its a used still so who knows when it was cleaned last. Thanks in advance!

    Aging Rum

    8 months ago I decided to age my rum in a 25 year old light charred barrel that had a TON of whiskey dumps over the 20+ years. Everything is turning out great, but i think my final product needs more toffee/carmel/sugar nuances to be where i want it to be. Any suggestions in what type of barrel (toast and char level) i should consider to keep this going? I have been doing a ton of reading on aging rum and tannins...but i can't seem to find out how to toast / char a barrel more or less to keep more tannins in the wood. French Oak has the most tannins, but when you heat the wood most articles say it kills the tannins. What am i missing here?
  7. I ran my 2 stainless filters into the bottle tank and it all worked like charm! Thanks everyone for all your help! I decided to flush with RO and it seems to work great. I am still not sure about the filters i bought though. I will probably look for a better online source since I am in less of a hurry now. Thanks again!
  8. I have my stainless steel filter housings in series with all stainless NTP ins and outs. I have polypropylene 5 and .5 filters. Now what? Do i have to run water through to prep the filters? Any suggestions? I am filtering and bottling such small amounts to start (300L) per batch i dont want to mess anything up haha. Thanks everyone again!!
  9. Found everything in Canada in stainless! Hopefully the filters are fine in Polypropylene. The guy said when i switch from spirit i can ziplock the filter and put in the fridge to reuse. Anyone have experience with this? I mean they are only 10$ish each but i am doing like 50-100 gallon final bottling runs so i don't really want to toss a filter that could last 1000's of gallons you know?
  10. Next question. Other than the 5 and .5 micron filters so there a specific material the filter must be? I assume so but again i am a noob so any info would be great! Oh and does the 5 micro filter come before the .5 i assume?
  11. like this? https://www.lowes.ca/water-filtration/rainfresh-ess1-stainless-steel-10-in-water-filter-housing_g2398839.html In canada nothing is everywhere unfortunately =/
  12. This says Alcohol but who knows what that really means. This is the best i have found so far: https://pentairindustrial.com/industrial-filtration-solutions/liquid-cartridge-housings/52/high-temperature/ Is my moonshine going to taste like nylon?
  13. Any suggestions on where to buy the housing and filter? I was planning on using a flowjet for the pump. Sounds like a great idea!!
  14. Dumb question but is it possible to add an inline filter of some sort to a gravity fed Mori filler? Maybe pump into a filter that goes into a tank that feeds into bottling machine? Any cheap solutions would be wonderful!
  15. Looking for 10 Gallon new used barrels. Bourbon or rum preferably! PM me! Thanks,
