  1. Generally silicone hose should work, but there are better choices out there that are easier to clean and more durable. I like to use this distillery specific hose from TCW https://www.tcwequipment.com/products/3-4-distillery-tubing?taxon_id=6
  2. A refractometer for SG is super easy and accurate enough. FG is measured the same way as described by @Patio29Dadio
  3. Brand new, never used 125 gallon hybrid pot still for sale. Patriot Craft Still manufactured by American Beer Equipment for sale available immediately. Includes control panel and steam valve. Asking price is $46000. Please shoot me an email for details. Distillerynow@gmail.com
  4. @38° drop me a line at Distillerynow@gmail.com and we can get on a call to discuss. Cheers, ---KB
  5. @38° how large of a distillery are you planning to build? Ive helped a few folks set up small distilleries with 100 gallon stills (steam heated) on single phase and made it work. It will take some careful electrical planning but is doable
  6. Hi @Darren Bobby welcome to the forums. Lots of good stuff to be learned here
  7. the folks at Balcones are often selling barrels, not sure if they still do 5 gal barrels, but worth asking them
  8. take the medal and put it to use. Talk it up. Very few consumers of buyers are aware of how a competition works and that medal regardless of color to most people is a sign that the spirits are good.
  9. You can reasonably expect 3 proof gallons per bushel from malted barley. This will be highly dependent on your cuts and quality of fermentation
  10. any welds that are thinning out in your still are best repaired by either TIG welding or brazing. Silver solder will degrade very quickly.
  11. @KEL Ive help and handled start up for quite a few distilleries and can help you with some of your business planning and forescasting. Shoot me an email Distillerynow@gmail.com
  12. @molassesman can probably help you get what you need.
  13. If you get a fedex license for shipping alcohol you should not have problems shipping spirits to any legit competition in the US
