    Capsule Supplier

    I'm having a hard time finding a capsule in the 41mm x 35mm size for our somewhat short necked and wide topped bottle. Does anyone have any suggestions on custom houses that could possibly work with me to produce custom sizes? The manual application of sleeves is getting tedious. -HFD

    Barrel Grabber Thingy

    I'm looking for the name/vendor for an adapter used with forklifts/gentry cranes that has two pincers that grab barrels on either end and hold tight as weight is applied. When I google for "barrel grabber" and "barrel grabber thingy" I only get drum management tools for skid steers. I'm sure someone here knows what I'm talking about. I hope...
  5. Does anyone have a line on a vendor for used 53G barrel rack? I'm specifically looking for someone on the east coast/northeast because shipping costs are out of control atm. Thank you!

    Plastic vs Stainless tanks

    Stance on food grade vs non-food grade as it pertains to spirit storage?
  8. I wanted to make apparent to everyone the company we've worked with for 3 years now on label design, among other projects. AW Marketing, headed by Jason Adlowitz, has talented graphic design capabilities that complements their focus on brand and spirit portfolio strategies to create exceptional spirit labels. They've designed a family of spirits for us that achieved, spectacularly, the goals we laid out. They have a talented network of printers, photographers, copywriters, etc. to help you with every need to develop and market your products effectively. This reference was unsolicited. I'm putting them out there because they deserve much more recognition as I'm overwhelmed with the quality of work I received. Below is an image of our family of spirits, where each one was tailor made to our business goals and their placement within the portfolio. If you have spirit labels that need to be designed, contact Jason at jason.adlowitz@gmail.com. -Teal

    Barrel logo engraving

    What methods does everyone perform to engrave the head of your barrels? Is anyone using spray paint/marking paint of some kind? Has it had a negative effect on product in barrels? I'm looking into this and weighing my options. Any feedback is appreciated.
  10. I'm trying to put some rhyme and reason to spot market price for barrels of various ages. Does anyone have any resources or insight on what the price of a newmake filled 53G barrel would yield vs multi-year aged barrel would yield?

    Use of Thumper vs. 2nd pot still run.

    Mistake on my part. I meant distiller's beer. lol I hope no one put unfermented mash in their thumper! Quite the cleanup I would imagine.

    Transfer in bond to Winery

    We have a local winery that wants to partner and collaborate on a product line. They're wanting to bring in bulk spirits from our DSP and fortify soda that they make and can it as a canned cocktail. The main question: is it even possible to transfer bulk spirits besides grape based brandy/neutral to a winery? Thank you in advanced!

    Use of Thumper vs. 2nd pot still run.

    I believe a thumper equates to roughly about 1.5x distillation. It's really it's own animal though. You will produce a dramatically fuller flavor off a thumper compared to a spirit run from low-wines. If you use water in the thumper you'll get an extension of the hearts run, and if you use distiller's beer you will bump proof up a bit with less of an extension.
