    140 Liter Pot-Column Kothe Still for Sale Price: $12,500 (Buyer handles shipping) All serious offers considered. Contact info@dutchsspirits.com or 518-398-1022
  3. We are looking for a second still to increase our production capacity. Is anyone upgrading to a larger system and maybe thinking about selling their smaller capacity still? We currently have a Carl still, made in Germany, that we like very much. Any German made still would be our first choice, but willing to look at other manufacturers as well. Doesn't have to be huge - will consider anything ranging from 150 liter to 1000 liter charge. Any leads will be much appreciated! Contact me if at 650-283-4721, or ulli@hmbdistillery.com Thank you!
  4. Over the last two years, I’ve brought our concept to reality - - and we are a turnkey operation. To date, I (plus a few friends and family) have invested over $1M and 25 months of effort to create Los Angeles’ first combination distillery and brewery. Three others exist in the state (Bay Area and San Diego); all are successful. Currently, I’m seeking someone passionate about craft distilling / brewing who will help shape the business and brand. That person has to have unwavering perseverance, tenacity, and a level demeanor to interface with customers and accounts. We have already done the time consuming work of getting a physical location, legal authorization, and licensing (federal and state). We need help branding and bringing new products to market. We are looking to move quickly. If you’d be interested in discussing it further and becoming a part of it, please shoot me an email to discuss this opportunity. Link to photos This is not a solicitation to buy shares in our company. We are seeking interested parties to hear more about opportunities in distilling. Solicitations will only be made privately to qualified investors.

  6. Kothe still - plates and dephlegmator

    Hi Everyone, We have a 1000L Kothe still we just hooked up. A local brewery gave us a wash and we ran our first ever batch through the still. We're still learning our equipment and I wanted to reach out to the forum to get some help with some of the issues we're having. 1) Dephlegmator - When the guys from Koval came to set up the still, they said we wanted to run our dephlegmator at around 77C. This has proven very difficult. The dephlegmator is cooled by the water that exits the condenser - the condenser temp is controlled by a thermostatic valve on the ingoing cooling water. As the distillation progresses, the temp of the dephlegmator will increase and the ABV in the parrot will drop significantly (seemingly way before it was supposed to). We had to then increase our cooling to compensate, long story short the temp and our ABV ended up being all over the place for most of the distillation. Has anyone else run into this? Since other factors play a role in the dephlegmator temp (vapor temp, volume of vapor) do you think it would be a good idea to get the dephlegmator on it's own, separate control system that can self regulate the temp of the dephlegmator itself? Also, is it a good thing that the dephlegmator temp increases as the distillation continues? Will this allow for compounds with a lower vapor pressure and higher BP which could add valuable flavor components to make it through into the tail end of the hearts? 2) The plates - What effect have you all found in terms of adjusting the liquid level in the plates? I have in my notes from when the Koval guys came here is that having the plates more closed (high liquid level) gives higher separation (cleaner distillate) that having them all the way down. Is this because it forces all of the steam to condense when it hits that plate? Wouldn't having the plates more open force more liquid to drain back into the previous plates and into the still and also have a purifying effect? What effect to do see in ABV off the parrot with the plates? Effect on the flavor? Difference in upper plates vs lower plates? Any recommended ways to run it? Thanks everyone, hopefully I can repay the favor with some needed info for you one day! ADKdistiller

  10. Kothe Distilling Fall 2011 Workshop

    Kothe Distilling Technologies Fall 2011 Workshop Koval Distillery in Chicago is proud to host Kothe Distilling Technologies' three-day fall workshop from October 14th to 16th. The course covers both basic and advanced distilling techniques and the legal and business aspects of starting a distillery. It is not only tailored to prospective distillers, but also is of great benefit to liquor industry professionals who want to improve their knowledge of the craft distilling movement, understand the process of distilling, and hone their skills in tasting distilled spirits. During the workshop, participants will learn the entire process of starting a distillery from fruit selection, mashing, distillation, and packaging, to the legal and business aspects relevant to North America, including the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, certification and label approvals, location requirements, and state regulations. Students will also receive hands-on distilling experience on a custom Kothe still at Koval Distillery. A sensory seminar during the workshop will teach various sensory aspects of different types of alcohol, including eaux de vie, vodkas, whiskeys, grappas and liqueurs. Participants will sample many different products and learn to identify positive as well as negative aspects of distillates. Hosts Robert Birnecker and Sonat Birnecker Hart, founders of the award-winning Koval Distillery and the manufacturer's representatives for Kothe in the United States, will be giving personal insights into the practice of distilling and starting a distillery, and other lecturers will speak on their areas of expertise. The workshop will take place from Friday, October 14, through Sunday, October 16, at Koval Distillery at 5121 N. Ravenswood Ave., in Chicago, Illinois. Cost is $799. Please visit http://www.kothe-dis...ducts/workshops for more information and to sign up for the course.
