    Does it worth, 15K for 320 gallons pot still?

    Heck no. That still homemade still looks downright dangerous. I would not pay 1500 for that thing let alone 15K.

    Small pump for bottle washing station

    Do not rinse with soap. Best way to rinse, clean and sanitize your bottles it to rinse with ethanol. The flojet pumps from TCW are fantastic for this

    Why 7-8 days fermenting a 5 days batch of sugar?

    If your hydrometer is reading at 1.000 or below it is done fermenting and ready to be distilled. Ferments will continue to off gas (bubble) well after they are done fermenting

    Weeping Barrels

    @AnthonyM what kind of humidity are you maintaining around your barrels? Low humidity levels can cause leaking on otherwise good barrels.

    Looking for a scale....

    Most legal for trade floor scales rated for a 1000 pounds will only show a resolution of .5 as that is as accurate as they get. The same display is used for many different scales so even if the display can show 1/10th it is unlikely that the 1000 pound rated scale can read those accurately.

    Gin flowers

    Rosehips contribute some nice floral aroma without being overwhelming
