    Mash tun size

    @Silk City Distillers is right. Running a mash tun twice the size of your still is far more efficient than a tun sized to your still or smaller @WayneT if you need some help in planning I do distillery consulting and would be happy to help you. Drop me a line at Distillerynow@gmail.com Cheers, -KB
  8. most but not all continuous column stills are designed for grain in distillation. This means a on the grain bourbon wash can be sent through a column grain and all. One of the essential steps in running this type of wash through a continuous column is that it must be throughly mixed, as solid chunks of grain or yeast can easily clog up the system.
  9. a properly built (sealed up) mill and auger system will generate very little dust. If you are building a big operation you will need dust collection but most smaller systems generate very little dust

    Hi @Rookie the answer to all your questions are going vary widely depending on who you talk to and where they operate. Your first question, I could write you a long story to answer it, would be a much better phone discussion For water treatment, this will depend on the input from your local water authorities. I have run distilleries where I had to carefully control our waste water and treat it. ive also run distilleries where we did not treat our waste water at all Same the answer to the last question. Yes and No If you need some help getting a distillery going and need help clearing regulation hurdles, please email me Distillerynow@gmail.com and I can share my experiences with you and help you work through them.
