  1. I don't know. The fibers in agave are pretty tough which is why the old method use a big stone mill or more modern distilleries use a roller mill. I'll ask a guy I know and get back to you.
  2. @Canuckwoods all of the major spirit and wine competitions in the world award medals based on their own internal quality metric which means if a 100 spirits were entered into a category and base on their quality 100 could receive gold medals or none could receive medals. However, the Great American Beer Festival and their subsidiary competitions use a 1-2-3 model so that no matter how many entries in a category they only award 1 gold, 1 silver, and 1 bronze.
  3. I haven't heard of anyone selling the pulp. Once cooked and crushed the must starts to ferment. However, cooked agave (whole or halved) seem to be pretty stable, I've seen distillers in Oaxaca leave their cooked pinas for more than a week before crushing and beginning fermentation. A number of years ago St. George purchased cooked agave from mexico and then trucked it up to Alameda, CA where they shredded it and distilled it, though from the stories I've heard they had some difficulty with this process.
  4. ADI uses a licensed importer to receive all of our competition entries which allows entrants to ship from licensee to licensee.
  5. Certificates of Label Exemptions only available for spirits sold exclusively in the sate they are produced? https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/27/13.11 Certificate of exemption from label approval. A certificate issued on Form 5100.31 which authorizes the bottling of wine or distilled spirits, under the condition that the product will under no circumstances be sold, offered for sale, shipped, delivered for shipment, or otherwise introduced by the applicant, directly or indirectly, into interstate or foreign commerce.
  6. I don't think there is an issue for you to use a different neutral base. The base will impact the mouthfeel of the spirit so depending on how you want to support the botanicals, you could go a number of ways.
  7. On Friday the forum received a security update. If this problem is more widespread, I wonder if they may be related.

    There are some photo's missing from some of my posts.  Can you fix it or should I reload them?  The ones I found so far were the 3rd and 4th posts  down on the page below.  I've never seen posts missing before.

    Thanks.

  9. Thank you for posting this. I'm sorry you got wrapped up in this scam but hopefully your experience will help others avoid something similar.
  10.

Distillers and spirits distributed in Illinois can register to be an exhibitor at Indie Spirits and first time exhibitors can save $225 when they use the discount code "ADI" during registration. 2019 Chicago Indie Spirits Expo Supplier Registration
  11. I believe TTB requires a new COLA if the class/type changes so if you went from bourbon to straight bourbon or straight bourbon to Bottled in Bond Bourbon, those would require a new label but if your straight bourbon goes from 2 years to 4 years, I don't believe that would need a new label.
