  1. Hopped Whiskey(?)

    I know a lot of us distill beer from a local brewer that is either custom brewed or more likely something old or off that they need to destroy. So I submit a COLA for said whiskey and get told you need a Formula. Submit formula and it is approved as "spirits specialty" (can't call it whiskey). Any comments regarding hopped whiskeys? PM me if necessary. Thanks, Greg
  2. Hi to all, I was wondering if anyone here ever tried to make an all wheat whiskey. I know they exist and I’ve had a few... but can’t find much info on them. Malted wheat is not the easiest grain to find. So I was wondering if it would do a huge difference in taste to use unmalted. We work with a single farmer and he doesn’t have any malting capacity. Thank you very much! Charles Boileau

  5. Hello, I'm from Australia and currently in the process of starting my own distillery. I plan on initially making Vodka and Gin as I do not have the capital to purchase and store barrels to make Whiskey. I was recently contacted by a friend of mine in Asia who would like me to whiskey for him. He would import it into his country and bottle and label it under his own brand. I told him that in Australia whiskey must be aged in a wood barrel for a minimum of 2 years. He told me that these rules do not apply in his country and whiskey aged for a couple of months on oak chips would suffice. In Australia the law states that: Excise Act 1901 For Australian manufactured goods, the Excise Act 1901 as amended by “The Excise Laws Amendment (Fuel Tax Reform and Other Measures) Act 2006” stipulates: “Section 77FI - Delivery from CEO’s control of brandy, whisky or rum (1) Brandy, whisky or rum manufactured in Australia must not be delivered from the CEO’s control unless it has been matured by storage in wood for at least 2 years. Does anyone have any experience with exporting or selling whiskey aged on oak chips for less than 2 years? Is there any way to get around this law?

  7. Maintenance Specialist / Distiller

    Chattanooga Whiskey Company is in the process of hiring a DISTILLER/MAINTENANCE SPECIALIST for our new craft production facility in downtown Chattanooga, TN - Outside Magazine’s two-time “BEST TOWN EVER” winner.

We want to build the best bourbon and whiskey possible, and our people (and their attitudes) are the most important ingredient to that recipe. We currently offer 1816 – an 8 year old, award winning, world-class, traditional bourbon blended and bottled by yours truly.

  8. KASON CORPORATION 67-71 East Willow Street Millburn, NJ 07041 Tel: 973-467-8140, ext 211 Fax: 973-258-9533 Website: http://www.Kason.com E-Mail: JLing@Kason.com Model MO-SS Centri-Sifter in 8 Feathers Distillery The best equipment to remove spent grains from their distillery’s discharge stream was found by 8 Feathers Distillery to be Kason Corporation’s Centri-Sifter. Substantially less expensive than alternatives from other manufacturers, the solution simplified equipment needs. Once grain is fermented or distilled, it requires disposal by a means acceptable to the local community. Craft distilleries, often located within a Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) service area, require strict limits on solids discharged in the waste stream. Since many craft whiskey distilleries use hammer mills to grind grains, the resulting byproduct is too fine to allow lautering as the grain removal method, so an aggressive process like the Centri-Sifter must be used. When originally presented with 8 Feathers process challenge, Kason Corporation offered the MOS Centri-Sifter with a heavy duty screen as the best separation option – though possible to accomplish with a traditional Vibroscreen, the Centri-Sifter allows higher flow rates while also producing a discharge of spent grain with less remaining free water. After sending a sample of the material to be separated, Kason Corporation conducted a free process test and suggested a screen mesh and paddle design to separate material and minimize the risk of screen blinding. For a small distillery facing these restrictions, the challenge to economically remove spent grains becomes limited and daunting. Trucking of stillage discharge is cost prohibitive with high water content so producers seek solutions to separate grain from liquid for efficient disposal. Before choosing Kason Corporation’s Centri-Sifter, other separation methods identified included passive settling systems, chemical flocculation, or mechanical separation. Among mechanical separation options considered were filter presses, screw presses, and centrifugal separators. Initial studies indicated all these as viable choices where presses are the most expensive and centrifugal sifters are the most cost effective solutions. 8 Feathers Distillery studied these options and concluded that mechanical separation using Kason Corporation’s Centri-Sifter offered the best combination of cost, function and efficiency. Though settling tanks provide effective separation, the process requires multiple holding tanks with excessive time and space requirements. Use of chemical flocculation renders the spent grains unfit for use as animal feed – instead they become solid waste which must be disposed of in landfills. A filter press sized to meet distillery needs requires a large compressor to drive air diaphragm pumps. Without adding some form of solids coagulant to the process stream, the filter cloths require extensive cleaning after each use. The chemicals which enhance the solids collection render the collected grains unacceptable for use as animal feed. These additional equipment and chemical needs make filter presses, though effective, the most expensive option. Screw presses are appropriate for general industrial use but lack features to clean adequately for a distillery. No press fit within budget, flowrate and footprint constraints of 8 Feathers. While mechanical separation is the best solids removal method, Kason Corporation’s Centri Sifter minimizes cost, time, space, and environmental impacts best within the types considered. After purchase and prior to installation, Kason Corporation supplied mechanical drawings to allow 8 Feathers to construct the necessary platform to house the Centri-sifter. Once the unit arrived it was installed without issue and began initial testing immediately. The results were as good, or better, than expected. The unit processed a 1500 gallon, 40% solid test sample fed at 40gpm, without any screen blinding or degradation of performance. The separated grain was suitably dry for transport by truck. Now, the MOS Centri Sifter provided by Kason Corporation is in production at 8 Feathers Distillery and provides a key function in POTW compliance while still allowing captured solids to be used for animal feed in an efficient and cost effective grain separation solution.

  21. I've tried making gin on a whisky still and the resulting product has a whisky still taint/flavour/characteristic undertone. The same gin made on a still that's never made whisky, results in a lovely clean gin profile. My question to everyone is: Is it possible to clean sufficiently following a whisky run to remove the whisky flavour characteristics? The reason I'm asking is I'm trying to decide if I'll risk making whisky in my gin still. If I'm not 100% confident I can return the still to a clean state I won't risk it. I don't know anyone with a copper pot still with any experience in making both gin and whisky on the same still. All assistance greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mech.
