    Potato Vodka

    It doesn't matter whether you use the genuine article or flakes as there is still going to be a lot of water involved. However, using your Alaskan spuds is a great marketing plus point. I am experienced in making potato vodka and I can tell you it is not simple, primarily due to the liquefaction issue. The spud is a hard taskmaster and every seven year old knows that potato and water together makes GLUE. If you need help putting together the right equipment and process for mashing and distilling a great potato vodka, I would be pleased to help you. Best, Gerard. https://www.linkedin.com/in/gerard-evans-1b2b8a58/

    Vodka startup

    Hi Vodkaman, I think you posted another message about this, which I replied to. I'd be happy to guide you through this process, but I'd like to know a lot more about your plan before I offer a cogent recommendation. Please contact me through my LinkedIn profile for further help and well done for asking for advice instead of just rushing out and buying a still. Best, Gerard https://www.linkedin.com/in/gerard-evans-1b2b8a58/

    New equipment

    Hi vodkaman, This is a very complex subject, so please be careful. Well done for not rushing out and simply buying the first still you saw, like many do. The type of still you buy depends entirely on what you intend to use it for - not just now, but also in 3-5 years. It needs a lot of planning to avoid costly mistakes. If you need professional help, you can view my credentials and contact details here. https://www.linkedin.com/in/gerard-evans-1b2b8a58/ I specialise in helping start-ups just like you. Good luck, Gerard

    Can I make my own commercial still? What regs?

    Out there in NM you might want to spend some time thinking about your cooling source rater than heating. How is that condensor going to run?

    Principal reason why distilleries fail ?

    Principal reason why distilleries fail ?

    Just remember that you are probably your prime marketing tool and those gals should know that...

    Just started making small test batch gins, thoughts on botanical recipes??

    Ten grams is a good start for juniper and coriander but it really depends on what you intend to do with the distillate. Is it for gc/ms?
  12. Gedrick Distilling Company


    Well right there you just threw a huge spanner in the works by uttering the word RUM. You need a fuller idea of exactly what you intend to make before thinking about still makers. Rum will change a lot of your options right away. Good luck!

    best water used for blending with distilled spirit

    Use the water you intend to use in production, if possible...then you will know what you are getting into. If you are doing any gc/ms then use RO or d-i for a really pure result.

    Finding the right facility

    Good reply...but don't sweat this stuff. It is for gray bureaucrats and form fillers. Make sure it is correctly recorded by all means, but focus on what is coming out of your still!
