  1. We are now selling all our whiskeys and Bourbon at 2+ years old. I looked at the allowable COLA changes on the TTB site but could not determine if adding the word "Straight" before Whiskey or Bourbon on my label was allowable or if need to submit revised COLAs. Any thoughts?
  2. Hello Kara, What other info would you like? Links to the specs and some pictures are available in the original posts. Also, search on the water pump in the For Sale section and the details are there for the pump. I used this system until it was too small for the new equipment cooling needs. You can give me a call if you would like. 703-587-4680.
  3. We really found that the slowest part of the bottling process was the labeling, so that is what we addressed first. We have really increased our bottling throughput by adding a CDA labeler. The labeler first applies the bottle capsule closure that is then shrinked in the heat tunnel, the label is then printed on (sequential bottle number and lot number) then the front and back labels are applied. While not cheap ($23K) it is much much better and faster than hand rolling each label on even with a semi-auto single bottle labeler. As we continue to grow we will add an auto rinser/sparger, filler and capper to the lineup.
  4. Come on, someone can put this chiller to use. Price reduced to $7K and I'll throw in a 1500 gallon water tank (pre-drilled for piping connections) and a 36 GPM Water Pump (208V, 3PH), that I had listed on another post. PM me.
  5. Price reduced to $8,000. PM me if interested. It is sitting here ready to ship.
  6. The Chiller is located in Manassas, Virginia (Northern Virginia) about 6 miles south of I66.
  7. RTS-1603 Chiller supplies 192,000 BTU/HR (16 Tons) cooling at 45F chilled glycol/water. It is a 4 compressor unit. Power requirements are 208V 3PH 60Hz. This unit was operational when taken out of service in August to be replaced with a much larger unit. This unit was used along with a chilled water tank and Heat Exchanger to crash cool a 500 gallon Mash Tank, cooling water for the pot still condenser and chilled water cooling for (4) 500 gallon fermenters. It has dual circulator pumps (one standby) manually selected. This unit was put into service in May 2015. I think that one of the 4 compressors will need to be replaced. Originally paid $23.7K for unit new. Asking $10K as-is. FOB Origin Manassas, VA 20110. PM me with any questions.

  8. This pump is still available. Please PM me if interested.
  9. The box weighs 58lbs and the dimensions are 26" x 22" x 16.5" (L X W x H).
  10. No problem. I'll box it, weigh it and send you the dimensions and weight for your shipping. You can send a check to KO Distilling, 10381 Central Park Drive, Suite 105, Manassas, VA 20110. I'll get the paperwork together for it also.
  11. Series 1535 Model 355T Pump and Motor. 36 GPM. Previously used as a re-circulation pump between our HX and our Chilled water tank. Put into service April 2015. Taken out of service August 2017. Includes a suction strainer/diffuser. We changed out the Heat Exchanger for a large size so we had to change the pump out also. Price $400.00 FOB Origin 20112 (Manassas, VA.)

    ITF-14 Barcode

    You will need to contact GS1 and purchase ITF-14 bar codes for each of your UPCs. If you have different case configurations (6 pack and 12 pack) for each product then you will need 2 ITF-17 bar codes (case codes), one for each configuration. If you are selling in control states then you will have to register each UPC with its corresponding case code number with NABCA. Clear as mud, right?
  13. I have 16 newly dumped 53 gallon barrels. The barrels came from Kelvin Cooperage and have a No. 3 Char. The barrels held our Wheat Whiskey for one year (5 barrels) or our 100% Rye Whiskey for 18 months (11 barrels). Once dumped a new bung was inserted. Selling for $175 each or $150 each if you buy 4 or more. You handle shipping. We have them 4 to a pallet now but can sell individually. Barrels are currently in Manassas, Virginia 20110. PM me or call at 703-587-4680.
