  1. need help with posting

    Who manufactured the still, any specs on the boiler?
  2. Wheat Grain Seperation

    My question exactly, we tried something similar and the heat deformed the tote so bad that it ended up being a one-time use.
  3. 480 Gallon Proofing Tank on Load Cells

    Adam, where did you buy the load cells and control box?
  4. Sewer Limitations due to IPC/Regulations

    In most jurisdictions you will need a minimum of 2 ADA Compliant restrooms.
  5. Fermentation stops @ 50%

    You should be using a carbon block to filter the water that you are using for your mashing. If as Silk and indyspirits have mentioned, if the local municipality has made a change in their treatment protocols your filter may be compromised/infected. Try replacing the cartridge and flush it heavily before the next batch. I would also have a chat with your local water department to ask them if there have been any changes or recordable incidents since you started having issues.
  6. Supply Chain

    Are you being hit by freight surcharges, pallet charges, or unusual fees when ordering raw materials/supplies for your distillery or brewery?
  7. Jake Norris Consulting

    Hey Jake, what happened to the app you had for the IPhones?
  8. Anyone have experience w/ Affordable Distillery Equipment LLC??

    Paul, what is the heat up time on something like this?
  9. How Long Before You Broke New Business Momentum

    Making it is easy, it's the sales end of it that is the hard part. You need to be spending 90% of your time building relationships with the bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. This is a seven day a week endeavor because you have to catch these people at times when they work and are able to see you. The turnover rate is pretty high in the restaurant industry so plan to recanvas at least every quarter so you know who is pouring your product and who you still have to convince.
  10. Stillhouse vs. Whiskey Systems

    Early on we looked at everything available and ultimately decided on Whiskey Systems. More bang for the buck, and world class customer service. These guys really know their stuff, more importantly they can explain it in terms you can really understand. If there are problems or questions Donald and his team are right there helping you solve any issue that may arise. No need to look any further.
  11. Resting White Spirits After Distillation & Proofing

    We "rest" our Gin for 20 days before bottling as many of the flavor characteristics come off at different boiling points. They need time to marry up and the best way is to vat everything and proof a little high. All the flavors will reach their peak after about 20 days and then you can take it to your final bottling proof and put it in the bottle. With Vodka you shouldn't have to follow this procedure. There shouldn't be any flavors to marry, so you should be good to go as soon as you proof and filter. We still take two or more days to do this as we creep up in the final proof to make sure we get it right.
  12. Barrel Filling

    ZL-120L ? What color did you pick, what makes sense?
  13. After 5 years and Broke

    I saw this and freaked! What went wrong here?
  14. Unexpected Code Requests

    The city required us to have an RPZ as we had so many water connections throughout the distillery. This also requires an annual inspection and a $150 fee every year.
  15. 2500L Artisan Still Design Mash Tun for sale

    Curious, why are you selling it?
