  1. MSDS for Ethanol 85% Concentration

    Once its beverage alcohol, as opposed to "industrial" its UN3065. That might be pedantic given the MSDS conditions are exactly the same, the percent alcohol doesn't change, I can only relay what the California DOT told me
  2. Pulsing Still

    Sounds like a back pressure issue. Did this just start ot has it always done that? Does it only do it when you're running at 95%if you lower it to 90 do you still get the pulsation? Might be useful to share a pic of the still.
  3. Proofing using Gauging Manual Table 6

    Sending you a PM now.
  4. Proofing using Gauging Manual Table 6

    Not sure if this helps, but according to the gauging manual:
  5. Proofing

    dont stress about it too much. as long as you are using certified stems, and a certified thermometer, should be just fine. We eyeballed our proofing using hydrometers and thermometers for 15 years before we got our DDM 2911... and when we did, we did some side by side comparisons.. our manual measuring was usually within .05 degrees of proof... we were pretty satisfied by that That being said.. getting a density meter should be a goal of all distillers i think... these things are awesome. plug in a little sample, and badda bing badda boom your got your measurement AND records for proof
  6. Transfer Spirits FROM BW -to- DSP?

    That is some fantastic info... thank you for the effort and explanation
  7. So, looks like we're making the whole area H3... Sigh. "They" want your business in their city, then tell you all the ways you can't do it...
  8. When I called them to inquire about the product I specifically asked about the temperature range. I suggested that our still gets between 200 and 230 degrees and she said that wasn't a problem at all. If you click that first link apparently shelter Point Distillery used this application and they have this as a case study on their website period I actually put in a call to shelter Point Distillery to see if they were happy with the product I'm hoping somebody gets back to me.
  9. haha true that. just helps with the brainstorming is all
  10. Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has used this product before: http://pro.everbritecoatings.com/portfolio/shelter-point-distillery/ (aside from shelter point obviously) As Im sure you can all relate to, polishing the still and keeping it nice and new penny shiny is a pain in the butt. I was just looking into any high heat coatings that might work for helping to keep the copper looking nice and came across this stuff. I spoke with tech services, and they said they did even make an ethanol resistant version of it, to protect against drips and what not. We currently use a citric acid wash to clean (or left over wine), and then we polish with a metal polish, but after a week of operations the luster wears off and its back to old penny look. Thoughts?
  11. Transfer Spirits FROM BW -to- DSP?

    im just not familiar with the bw forms, so dont know what line 7 encompassed
  12. yes, sorry. i got confused. we're currently in non sprinklered, which is 30gal, but the new building is sprinklered. i guess maybe when we started 19 years ago, therr weren't many resources for "closed systems". ive seen pictures if some distilleries though that appear to be using 350 - 550 gal ss tanks that somehow qualify as closed? can anyone confirm this, maybe send a link or a picture ? maybe we're thinking too conservatively about this thanks much
  13. Transfer Spirits FROM BW -to- DSP?

    I wonder if this covers wineries aging brandy on their premises and sending aged spirits to a DSP or rectifier for bottling?
  14. Hi there, Was hoping to pick your brains about how you were able to arrange the operation of multiple stills concurrently, the output of which may exceed the allowed 90 gallons of flammable liquids in an F1 rated occupancy building. We are in the process of planning our expansion, and are trying to wrap our heads around how it would be possible to have 2 to 5 stills operating in the same space. Any chance folks would be willing to upload pics of their setup, and offer how you navigated the fire code/occupancy limits As always, much obliged. D.
