  1. Equipment needed

    Hello all, We are looking for a 150g cooker steam piped or jacketed, four 150g open top jacketed fermenters (conical bottom preferred), and a boiler that will be able to run a 132g still, 30g hillbilly still, cooker, and steam a fermenter all at the same time. We are located in central Kentucky so the closer the better. If you can point me into the direction of suppliers that would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. Boiler Chemicals

    What are people using for boiler chemicals? Our original chemical company is not longer around and just ran out of chemicals a little while ago. Got a quote from a new company but seemed crazy high that a 5 gallon pail is quote for $800. I see Chem World listing boiler chemicals for $140 for 5 gallons. Anyone have a go to source and recommendation on what to use? I figure I can build a flow meter linked to a raspberry pi board that will auto-dose on water usage, but not sure precisely what chemical to use. All help is appreciated. I don't want to neglect one of my most expensive pieces of equipment, but don't feel like getting ripped off either. Cheers, Jeff
  3. Steam Control

    Simple question for those of you with low pressure steam boilers: How do you control how much heat is going to the still if the boiler has only on/off operation? Can someone please describe their setup and how it works? I've only been exposed to direct heating with electric elements and steam is a different animal. Cheers, VB
  4. Steam Generator Option

    Hello all, We are purchasing some equipment to run our 300L Hoga still. We are also bootstrapping so a full setup of a 10-15hp boiler is going to kill our budget (unless we go back out for funding). I have seen in previous forum discussions that a 12kW Steam Generator would work to heat our still in a pretty standard and fairly decent time frame - this obviously isn't a long term solution but I wanted to get an opinion on feasibility, especially for that first year or so of running the still. (FYI - we are getting our mash from a local brewery so no HLT or Mash tun considerations here). Appreciate any input around this. Cheers! Alex

  8. Boiler required BTU / Chiller HP

    Hi everyone, We are setting up a distillery and we need some advice about boiler/chiller. We talked with many still manufacturers and they have different instructions about the required boiler for our stills. We are on a tight budget, so we would like to have the community advice. Our setup will be as follow: One 1200 liters mash tun Two 1200 liters fermenters One 600 liters pot still with vodka column. We will run only one equipment at the time. Mash tun, or still, to reduce the required power required for our steam boiler. A manufacturer tells us we need 480 000 btu/h output. Another one says 300 000 btu/h output is fine. Another one talked about 150 000 btu/h output. Can someone please advice as the cost is quite changing from a 480 000 btu to a 150 000 btu. As I mentioned before, we are on a tight budget. About the chiller, a manufacturer told us we will need a 2500 liters glycol tank! Another one is talking about a 7.5HP glycol chiller. Some says we should use cold water. Could we do that? Our building as a well, no city water, so we are unsure of the quantity of available water. What is the best to cool down our mash, maintain our fermenters at the required temperature, and to use with our still condenser? What is the required power? Thanks to all!
  9. Can anyone recommend a boiler installer in Colorado? This is going into our distillery in Steamboat Springs. I am having a bear of a time finding anyone closer to us then Denver to sell us and install a boiler. That said, if anyone has a good person in Denver, I would happily accept that too. Getting a little desperate here. I need to find a reasonable priced installer to help source a unit and pipe it in to code.
  10. We've been looking at suitable sites, and found some sites which are perfect (sprinklered, heavy power, zoned industrial) but don't have a big enough gas line. The existing line to the meter would only support about 400,000 BTU/hr, not enough for a proposed 1.5 M BTU boiler. When I called PG&E, to check on the property, they told me it could cost $60,000 to upgrade the existing 1/4" 0.25 psi (7" Water) line to the meter. I am just reeling in shock. Any body else had to upgrade a line ? What did you pay ?
  11. Blowdown Tank Help

    I'm curious if anyone has a recommendation for an affordable (cheap) small Blowdown Tank in the 21 gallon range to match up to our Crown 18.9 horsepower boiler. These are required in New Jersey and what I'm finding is really going to eat up budget. Thanks in advance!
  12. I have 4 Spirax Sarco steam pumps, one of which is pictured below. These were pulled out of a plant in the KC area and were working perfectly when removed. I no longer need them for the project I was working on. Asking $250 each.
  13. Can anyone recommend a NG boiler installer in Northern Colorado?
  14. First, forgive me if I'm posting something that exists within these threads. I've done searching and found a lot of indirect information but nothing that rounds out what I'm looking for. We are designing our system and have the opportunity to go with either setup for our mash cooker. Right now our plan is to use direct steam injection but I've received a lot of criticism from other distillers who state that introducing steam that could have possible contamination from boiler treatment (even if it is food grade) is a big mistake. The other side of the argument is that we've (the royal we) been making whiskey in America for 60 years using live steam injection. It's efficient and works, so why change it. The alternative is to use internal coils running indirect steam in combination with a dimple jacket for cooling water. *We are using a low pressure Colombia boiler If you could set this up however you wanted, what would you do and why? Thanks in advance.
  15. For sale is a Sussman ES100 Electric Boiler. We bought this several months ago at the beginning of our planning stages.

  19. Boiler size suggestion

    We're currently going through an expansion and i'm sure alot of you have gone through this so I thought it might be a good question to throw out there. Boiler will be heating: 300 gallon still, one 4 plate whiskey column, one 20 vodka column plate column hybrid still one 10bbl or about 310 gallon mash tun one 17.7 bbl or 550 gallon hot liquor tank We also wanted to have room for a future stripping still or a continuous to strip. We are getting quotes on 1.3 million btu input low pressure cast iron boiler thoughts? Should we look at bigger boilers to be safe or do you think we should be fine? Thanks
  20. So I am looking at my equipment and my current situtaiton is as follows. I have a direct heat still with thump keg and condenser and I have a steam jacketed mash tun. I am trying to decide if A. I should just find a direct heat Mash Tun and go the route of avoiding steam for now in order to keep cost down or go ahead and find a steam boiler and steam heat the mash tun and keep the still direct heat (saves alot in up front costs). The question I have is, Is a natural gas boiler safe? Can it be used in the context of a distillery? Is anyone currently using a nat. gas boiler for steam generation? Brian

  24. Boiler BTU's & PSI

    Hi, I'm opening a new distillery and I was just surprised by the price of steam boilers. I'm hoping you guys can provide some insight. I searched the forum but couldn't get a clear idea so I'm posting for the first time! After doing a quick search I found some 1,000,000+ btu boilers for about $15k. But after talking to a local engineer he quoted a 1,000,000 btu at $50k. The pot still I'm looking at is 250 gallons and the specs say 500,000 btu's should work. So, I can go smaller than 1,000,000, down to 500,000 but that means I won't be able to run the still and the cooker at the same time. So, my question is what am I missing? Why are these prices so different than what I was finding? Does it have something to do with PSI or.... Are the makes & models I was looking at insufficient for my purpose, or inferior in some way? I'm looking at Utica Boilers and other manufacturers like it. http://www.parksupplyofamerica.com/gproduct.php?id=UTIJD-1300-S Thanks for any and all help. Mike
