    Water Tank Ideas

    Not to hijack this but I have a 300 gallon insulated milk tank id be willing to sell if someone wants it. I was planing on doing this exact thing with it but it just wont fit in my space very well.

    Sediment in finished bottles

    I am getting sediment in our finished bottles. We do a 5 micron out of the barrel and into the proofing tank then .45 into the bottles I have even tried .2 micron but they seem to clog really fast and the finished product turns out the same. It goes in crystal clear but after a couple months on the shelf we are seeing a almost milky substance that settles in the bottom of the bottles. Any suggestions?

    Hot vs Cold Water Barrel Prep

    I dont get many with staples but I get them with the little T tacks I have driven em down with the tacks in place and occasionally have developed a leak where the tack rips the wood. Not often but its happened. The staples are probably thinner and more pliable?

    Hot vs Cold Water Barrel Prep

    Your hoops don't fall off when the barrel shrinks! I agree though they are a total pain in the butt.

    Hot vs Cold Water Barrel Prep

    What would be wrong with just using a clothing steamer and stuffing the hose into the bung hole? lol. I mean a lot could be wrong with that but... If your just building a way to crate steam and a direct open line to the barrel I dont see how making one would be all that scary. Now if your trying to make it pressurized to get your temp hotter yeah that could be dicey

    Rust in stainless tank

    I have a blending thank that I have a couple light spots of rust in. Just wondering what the proper procedure would be to take care of this. Looks like just surface rust on a seam about the size of a nickel.

    Outlet size on mash tun

    So im sure its not ideal but we only have a 1" out on our mash tun. Its set up more for beer with a screen for laundering in it. But im wondering if we pull up the screens and do a corn mash for bourbon with on grain fermenting will we be able to draw out of a 1" or do you think I need to get it modified? I know I can always just give it a go but id like some sense of success before I have a butt ton of a corn mess stuck in it.

    GNS Cost and Availability

    Smirnoff is grain to glass and thats the same Moto most "craft" distillery hang their hats on. Sure they are way bigger but they are doing the same thing lots of small craft brands do only better. Iv tastes plenty of vodka made from small craft brands that taste like dank ass. Just because your big and selling at a value doesn't mean your not good at your craft.

    GNS Cost and Availability

    When you buy 190 proof GNS you buy vodka all you got to do is add water and proof it down to your desired proof an slap a label on it. Badabing your a vodka distillery. No need to distill 190 proof neutral to make vodka.

    Filtering Through Limestone

    Wait you mean a "judge" at a pay to play competition that makes their living by handing out medals doesn't know what he is talking about. Get out!! Those guys are legit.

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    What size filtration do most of you use for your aged whiskeys. Not talking about chill filtering just filtering for sediment removal and spirit polishing. We where thinking of doing a 5 micron out of the barrel to remove sediment then a 1 micron pre bottling.

    thermostatic valve and dephlegmator

    Question for you guys running thermostatic valve with your dephlegmaor. I understand how they work and the valve will keep the dephleg running at the same temp. The thing that I wonder about is when im running my vodka column I will need to gradually turn up my heat so the I have more btu going to the kettle as the run goes on. My run will practically stop and I will need to put a bit more heat on the kettle to keep it going . But with the valve how does this work? If I add some heat the valve will just adjust and keep it in reflux
