    Red Star Yeast

    Anyone know the max ABV you can obtain using red star bakers yeast in a grain mash. I think it's around 5.5abv from my own experiments but I thought I'd see if anyone has had a different experience.

    Dickel Rye Question

    I am trying to learn more about the Dickel Rye Process. So far I have learned that the rye 95% distillate comes from MGP, than it is put through the Lincoln County Process, barreled, and aged from there. My two questions: 1) Does the spirit arrive at Dickel as "Distillate" wherein then, Dickel distills it again in their equipment and then continues the process, or does it arrive from MGP as a refined product. 2) What type of barrels Is Dickel rye aged in? New oak barrels or used oak barrels,and what cooperage are they from?
  4. How does one go about locating and purchasing a usable vintage/ antique copper still? I have been scouring the Ebay UK and other European countries for weeks and nothing has come up. Please PM me if you have any gouge on the subject. Thanks!
  5. What do you have for stainless totes? I have one from trans-store and it is nice. Do you have something similar?

    Best beers for making products

    I want to collaborate with a couple of the local breweries this fall in developing a some beer based products. Since we have several breweries here in the Yampa Valley, we have some choice as to what we use. I am thinking of doing a malt whiskey, a beer schnapps, and perhaps an akvavit with some local craft. I'll do some roto-vap and/or 3 gal distillations in the coming weeks, but I know there is a lot of experience here to tap into first. Anyone care to share their experience or direct me to some useful threads? Thank you

    Glass Costs

    Has the price of glass gone up? I had quotes for the Tennessee 750ml bottle in 2016 around $1.35-1.40/ unit. I have gotten a quote now for $1.67/unit. Am I missing something or is that just where we are now?

    Alternatives to plastic straws

    We are doing away with plastic straws and are also looking for alternatives. One I saw recently was a pasta straw: https://www.pastastraws.org/ and this one... We are going to see if one of our local Italian Restaurants can make the pasta straws.
