  1. Thanks for the confirmation.
  2. We got a kickback on a COLA for a whiskey finished in a wine barrel. Prior to the wine barrel aging it was a straight rye whiskey through and through. The kickback is requiring a formula and DSS classification. Is this congruent with everyone's experience with barrel finishing whiskies?
  3. I'm about to use citric for the first time to clean the still. I have a bucket of concentrate at 50%, I'm curious what concentration everyone uses for a final pass in your still (copper/steel). HFD
  4. Price does not include shipping. We are located at zipcode 14472. Pallet weight is 418 lbs.
  5. I have (9) Western Square, black barrel racks available for 15G barrels. Two barrels fit per rack, in excellent (but dusty) used condition. Asking $50.00 /ea, whole lot only. Will ship from 14472 area code with a weight of 418 lbs. Buyer is responsible for shipping.
  6. 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
  7. 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...
  8. 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!
  9. I'd be interested to hear you out.
  10. Stance on food grade vs non-food grade as it pertains to spirit storage?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
