    Vapor Prevention in 4 inch grain drop

    We ended up inserting a conical reducer into the mash tun so that the grain drop is 3 inches below the roof of the mash tun. We intended to at a flap on the bottom but there is no need. Our grain drop is bone try. cheap and easy. Thank you all.

    Puree vs Concentrate vs Raw Fruit

    We open ferment, no temperature control. We do fruit in mashing, fermenting and distilling. With a puree you might be able to rack off the solids but you might not have to separate. If you have any agitation you will be fine.

    Puree vs Concentrate vs Raw Fruit

    I have made several fruit mashes/distillations using both local fruit and locally produced fruit purees. It is more "crafty" to use whole fruit. If your goal is to become a producer of that fruit spirit then you should invest in the equipment to process that fruit. If, like us, you are a whiskey maker who wants to occasionally make a fruit spirit my, recommendation is to use a puree. Like cooking a big meal, making the mess is the fun part but cleaning it up is not as much fun. this is especially true if you do not have the proper equipment. We found that concentrates are more difficult to get flavor from because of the evaporation process.

    Vapor Prevention in 4 inch grain drop

    Both great ideas. The steam is rising during our grind in so the valve wont help. We disconnect it when we are done grinding. I will try to drop the entry point below the top of the mash tun to limit the "funneling" into grain path. Thank you, Brad

    Vapor Prevention in 4 inch grain drop

    I have an auger that drops into a 4 inch flexible tube to the mash tun. Steam rises into the tube from the mash tun. There must be a device that can prevent the steam from rising while still allowing the flour to drop. Ideas? Thank you, Brad Irwin Oregon Spirit Distillers

    Tank aging of fruit/berry based Liqueurs

    I would be concerned with oxidation from the head space causing color/flavor changes with the fruit. You can fill the head space with CO2 or other gas to prevent this.

    Corson Distilling

    We bought a 800 gallon fermentor from Corson. It was a little later then anticipated but the communicated well and the fermentor seems to be working well. For the price I have to say Corson worked out for us.

    Proofing barrel and bottle filling

    We proof in a Stainless tank. Transfer the spirit to a tote and lift the tote above the filler with a fork lift. Set the tote on a stand and let gravity do its thing. Good luck, Brad Irwin, Oregon Spirit Distillers
