  1. 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.
  3. Make sure they are the right species of Juniper. There are several kinds of juniper and most of them do not make good gin.
  4. @Bakery87 im no longer in Texas. These days I operate in Arizona. Best of luck with the City of Austin. If you hit any tough hurdles, let me know and ill help you out.
  5. @Bakery87 welcome to the forum. I know Austin well as I built Still Austin Whiskey Co. The city of Austin can be pretty difficult with regulations, If you need any help getting your distillery going drop me a line. Distillerynow@gmail.com
  6. Ive have helped a few people to get their Corson stills functional and safe to operate. If anyone does buy this equipment and needs help in getting it operational drop me a line. Distillerynow@gmail.com
  7. I worked with RNDC in Texas and they did well for us. @Bartletts Distillery when you say your distributor leaves alot be desired can you provide more detail?
  8. @SlickFloss are you asking about the continuous column systems built by carl or one of their batch systems? I have not run a Carl column but I know continuous stills extremely well and can help you out. Drop me a line Distillerynow@gmail.com and lets chat.
  9. amoretti has several excellent options
  10. any issues with the fermentors? leaks? or problems with them?
  11. If you can completely seal up you mash tun so that it has zero vapor leak , then you should be to modify it to be able to use it as a still. I have seen many pieces of dairy equipment converted into stills over the years that work well enough. With that said I would encourage you to work with someone who has experience in fabrication and can recommend the right equipment and safety reliefs so that if you build your mash tun into a still it is safe to operate
  12. Hi @LonePineDistiller ive worked with a few Corson systems and understand your frustrations and troubles. The last "automated" Corson system I saw had the same problems you described. Shoot me a PM and I can try to help walk you through some trouble shooting on it.
  13. Hi Dave welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of distilling. Best of luck in your journey
