  1. New Application TTB consultation

    Dave Dunbar. Best there is. Does all my stuff. dhdunbar1@gmail.com
  2. 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?
  3. Sediment in finished bottles

    Good idea I will do this. The funky thing is some bottling runs don't have it at all and some do. Im thinking it might be the barrels, thats really the only thing thats not consistent.
  4. Sediment in finished bottles

    Not rinsing. I don't think its bloom. If you shake em it dissolves. And then formed again later.
  5. Sediment in finished bottles

    We bring out RO water in from a local water company, we don't have the space and or the budget to do it on site at this point.
  6. Sediment in finished bottles

    We do use RO water.
  7. Equipment Vendors Selling Stills with Design Flaws

    Just taking a flyer but I bet if you google "Vancouver still maker" you will get your answer.
  8. We just assemble line it. Set up 6 or 7 people and we can turn out about 1,400 bottles in around 4 hours. One person filling, one corking, one spinning on labels, one adding safety seal and clear Shrinkwrap seal, one shrinking the seal and one numbering and putting it back in the case.
  9. Bain Marie Heat transfer oil

    Water will never get hot enough. You can use just about any heat transfer oil or even just fryer oil will do just fine at a fraction of the cost.
  10. Whitestar yeast

    Anyone using Whitestar yeast for anything? Did a search but dint see them mentioned.
  11. Operational protocol

    Usually its more like 30 gallons open and 120 closed per control area with no sprinklers.
  12. Product finishes too hot

    You should use Organic ingredients since they produce a far superior spirit.
  13. My experience with Corson Distilling

    Aw Snap!
  14. T top corks

    Tapi is another, although it tough to recommend them at the moment they have been a total shit show the last 4 months or so.
  15. Subbing out production

    You never mentioned where your located. It would probably be helpful to contract semi locally at least. Make it easier to oversee production and quality.
  16. Invaluable equipment vs

    Just start with nothing and buy what you need when you need it. Biggest wast is getting a bit ass loan and just buying stuff for the sake of buying stuff.
  17. New tax reform

    Pretty sure you pay at the rate that you removed it at, If you removed it from bond last year thats 13.50. But let us know if you hear anything from TTB
  18. Federal Excise Tax and my thoughts

    Hookers and blow! Party like its the 80's again.
  19. New tax reform

    Paging Mr Dunbar, Mr David Dunbar, please come to the conversation. But seriously if you could do this, it would be a great idea and stretch this out. Although i think they will just extend this at the end of two years. Seems like once they give tax breaks its hard to take them away.
  20. Doubler vs. Thumper - Why choose one over the other?

    So maybe a thumper and doubler are the same. With the intake pipe submerged and a sober box is with the inlet pipe not submerged?
  21. DYE China?

    We got our still in a few weeks ago. We have not installed it since we are just finishing up construction. But i can tell you it was a seamless process from ordering to them shipping it and handling all he customs. Equipment showed up in great shape and very clean. Looks like we could run out of it without even doing a cleaning run. We won't but it definitely looks clean.
  22. Kothe 5000 liter automated still with 18 plate vodka columns

    It's a beaut Clark.
  23. Proofing Issues

    How are you taking you proof readings? Old school thermometer and hydrometer? Could you just be reading it slightly off, those thing definitely have a learning curve.
