    Awesome! Congrats Matt! I'd love to come check out your operation once you get rolling. Likewise, if you're ever in the St. Louis area, swing by! Cheers! Adam

    Closed Chiller Loop Water Treatment

    If you're not plumbed through PVC, just dump a bunch of your heads in there! It will keep your water clean, it's easier to pump than water, and will exchange heat nicely. Oh yeah....and it's basically free! Haha. We've been doing this since last October and have had some pretty good luck with it. We even installed an outdoor condensing unit off an old chiller to pump our cooling water through it from Fall>Spring. We had some pretty cold spells here this winter and the heads dropped the freezing point enough to where nothing ever froze up on us. Glycol would probably be the best solution but I was too cheap for that. P.S. that outdoor cooling unit dropped our electric bill from $1,100 per month to $350 per month.

    My experience with Corson Distilling

    Yes, I know....it was my still. Unfortunately, we cannot comment too much because of legal proceedings. What I will say is that Josh Corson and one of his welders showed up about an hour after it happened and ended up correcting/band-aiding SOME OF the manufacturing and design issues. Since then, we have continued to dump money into this still to get it to operate properly and still have several thousand dollars left to spend to get to 100%. We have been so disappointed that we are actually bringing in another still to install as a fail-safe, just in case this one ends up crapping out all together....which at this point seems inevitable.

    Bloody Butcher Red Corn

    Just about full on this contract. Please let me know ASAP if you are interested. Corn is going in the ground in the next 2 weeks. Cheers! Adam
  10. Hey Guys, We are going to be expanding our distillery's heirloom corn program this spring and will be planting some additional Bloody Butcher acres in a few weeks. I was wondering if there was any interest in purchasing some Bloody Butcher futures for delivery this fall. If there are a few interested buyers, we will be sure to plant some additional acres for you! Here is how it would work: $0.35 per pound F.O.B Columbia, IL 62236 Q4 2018 Delivery Grain will be whole kernel and cleaned prior to shipping. 1/2 payment up front, 1/2 payment upon delivery Minimum order 1,000 pounds If you would like to learn more or purchase, please email adam.stumpf at stumpysspirits.com

    Vapor Prevention in 4 inch grain drop

    We use a 4" grist hydrator that has a gate valve on it, like many of the brewing guys...works like a charm. Picked ours up off ProBrewer for $250. Looks like there is a similar one listed on this ad for the same price! http://discussions.probrewer.com/showthread.php?65909-Grist-hydrator Cheers! Adam

    Waste Water -- Anyone use Septic Tanks?

    We separate our spent stillage and used to send the liquid/fines down the drain....miserable. We would have to get the 1k gal septic tank pumped every couple of months and the septic cleaning guys HATED us. We've since gone to a "settling pond" type operation (which was fun to get approved by the county)...similar to what cattle and hog farms use. This works very well as long as we keep pH neutral enough to promote healthy digestion of the fines in the settling pond. We do drain the pond every once and awhile to dig it out and apply to land with a manure spreader....works pretty well but obviously doesn't always smell the best!
