  1. I do mixed ferment ferment for all of my bourbon as there are some ale yeasts that bring amazing complexity to bourbon, that does not seem to come from strictly distillers yeast
  2. an average ear of corn has 800 kernels......oh wait this isnt corn trivia? I cant even begin to imagine the mess that would be trying to use fresh corn. Most folks use some variety of dent corn as it is simple, has high yield, and is scalable
  3. Welcome back @Mash Are you starting up a new distillery?
  4. good to hear. Ive found most citrus herbs (peel, rinds, leaves, lemongrass and verbena) are all much better extracted through vapor infusion versus maceration. Maceration tends to over cook the botanicals and produce a earthy cooked vegetable type character. Vapor infusion tends to extract the more desirable flavors
  5. I use dry verbena from Mt Rose herbs and have excellent success with it in our gin. @Foreshot let me know if you can get if from them. If not I can at least send you a few ounces of it.
  6. did you happen to try http://www.washingtondistillersguild.org/ ?
  7. Maturation is going to depend heavily on your environment / climate. Ive seen some bourbon in 53g barrels take 6 years to reach full maturation in colder climates. On the opposite side ive seen great 3 year bourbon in hot humid climates (central texas) Some lighter single malt whiskies seem to mature a bit faster than bourbon in 53g virgin barrels Id plan for at least 4 years for those 53g barrels if its bourbon
  8. @LucasPerks not trying to be rude here, but most of the corson equipment I have seen or worked on is non functional and dangerous. Why are you selling a brand new distilling system? Is this equipment you are selling operational or safe?
  9. @Winnie the Pooh . Great to see you vetting all options before deciding. Id highly NG powered recommend steam as your heat source. Steam is a excellent safe fast heat source. Yes there is some additional initial cost, but those costs are recouped quick with fuel and time cost savings that steam provides
  10. Heck no. That still homemade still looks downright dangerous. I would not pay 1500 for that thing let alone 15K.
  11. Thanks ! That forsyth is a magnificent still and I had a good time installing, piping it and getting it up and running. @Dehner Distillery Ive seen a few pictures of your continuous stills but have not gotten to see one in person yet. Do you have anybody running them in Cali, or Colorado?
