  1. What kind of roller mill do you have? I might be interested in trading. We are looking to make a switch from hammer to roller. Our hammer mill will do that kind of capacity without a problem. I have a boatload of screens for it as well. Only reason for us switching is that we mash some recipes without enzymes and I worry a bit about heat when we mill our malt. If interested, please feel free to shoot me an email to adam dot stumpf at StumpysSpirits dot com
  2. We run the "beer" pH meter from Hannah Instruments. Has worked awesome. A bit on the pricey side but works well.
  3. Definitely looks like an infection. Brewstilla was spot on...most likely lacto from your malt, depending at what temp you added it. If you were over 160F for your malt addition, it's probably a sanitation somewhere else in your system...mash pump, hoses, mash cooler piping, etc. Will probably taste fine but you'll probably find a lower yield with more heads and tails.
  4. The operations I'm referencing have their everyday production teams utilizing Hoochware...no fancy compliance position whatsoever. Again, not bashing WS, whatsoever; just saying there are other options that are scaleable.
  5. Hi Matt, We picked up an old automated olive oil bottling line that had been idle a couple years. Converted it over to bar-top and 28mm tamper proof and it's running like a champ! I believe it was initially put together by Criveller California. Sorry, I don't have much experience with any other out-of-the-box lines. Cheers! Adam
  6. I'm not certain that's the case. I know of PROMINENT distilleries in KY that probably run more volume in a month than all of us on this thread combined do in a year that are very happy with software options other than WS. Just saying that it's not the end all, be all if you want to run serious volume.
  7. +1 for Hoochware. We've been with them for several years now and love it. Does absolutely everything we need it to and is intuitive to use.
  8. If you're talking about fuel-grade ethanol, a simple redistillation won't take care of it. Talk to the folks at Still Dragon. They are putting together a system that will turn fuel-grade ethanol into USP beverage quality.
  9. interested for a pending project. Have any drawing/spec sheets you can send to adam.stumpf@stumpysspirits.com ? Thanks!
  10. We use automation and temp control on mashing, fermenting, column still, and pot still. Best money we've spent in the distillery for productivity and consistency.
  11. It's got a 5" blower discharge, necked down to 4". We blow tangentially into a bulk bin, sealed the top, and cut a hole that has a pipe that runs to a static dust collector. Hardly any dust at all while milling. I'll try to get a video next time we are running and will shoot it to you. Cheers!
  12. Picked up a used Bearcat with a 40hp motor for $250 off craigslist. Mill 20k lb per week through it...runs 2-3k lb per hour, depending on screen, grain, and moisture content.
  13. Still have plenty of these available. Incredibly high quality distillate. These were produced on contract specifically for the wholesale whiskey market and will have ongoing availability. Let me know if you'd like a sample!
