    Sorry I don't.

    I know a distiller that used cucumber water in the proofing process to add the fresh flavors without getting the stewed characters that can come over in distillation.
  3. The annual Public Policy Conference will be a virtual event this year and you can register for free through Eventbrithe here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/public-policy-conference-registration-111854092602 I flew out to DC last year and it was a privilege to participate and speak to representatives about the needs of the craft distilling community. Since this year's even is virtual and free of charge, I would encourage as many US distillers as possible to participate. Speak directly with your representatives and remind them of the importance of making the FET reduction permanent, the need to end tariffs that effect US spirits and any other regulatory/tax issues effecting your business.

  6. If you are still having any issues please admin@distilling.com and Christy will help you get into the system.
  7. Great news about the increased interest. "Lots of emails enquiring about me shipping to USA but as most of you know your laws do not allow it. My online store automatically locks out USA addresses." Does this mean US Importation soon? Fingers crossed on my end.

  12. @Tailwinds @bluefish_dist and @Storm King Distilling Co. it is commonly said among tequila and mezcal distillers that most of the methanol comes off the still during the tails. I am curious if any of you have had this experience when distilling agave syrup?
  13. On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the CARES Act, which provided additional assistance for small business owners and non-profits, including the opportunity to get up to a $10,000 Advance on an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). This Advance may be available even if your EIDL application was declined or is still pending, and will be forgiven. If you wish to apply for the Advance on your EIDL, please visit www.SBA.gov/Disaster as soon as possible to fill out a new, streamlined application. In order to qualify for the Advance, you need to submit this new application even if you previously submitted an EIDL application. Applying for the Advance will not impact the status or slow your existing application.
