  1. Choosing a bottle

    Just wondering if anyone else has had any interesting experiences when choosing a bottle for their brand? Has anyone gone through with a custom bottle design? We've been looking into a bottle shape that isn't often used in alcohol, but just got word from the bottle supplier that their cap isn't rated for anything above 10% ABV. I'm trying to learn more about Plastisol seals since they seem to be in a lot of caps. Does anyone know if they'll hold up to 80 proof well?

  3. Wine cap style crimper

    Hey all, I'm looking for a wine cap crimper for one of our new bottles. We bought a Chinese one that no electrician around here will touch. We are willing to put up with a manual/handheld one for now, but are also probably going to want a semi-automated one sooner or later. I can only seem to find wine CORKERS which we definitely do not need. Any hot leads? Thanks!!

Please email dave@watersheddistillery.com with interest or questions. Thanks Dave
  9. Craft distillers have similar objectives as larger producers with regards to the quality of spirit produced and removal of haze. As such, filtration prior to bottling is vital to ensure long shelf life, stability and minimal turbidity. To this end, the removal of hazes and the precursors to haze formation is particularly important.

  13. Anyone using Automated bottling?

    Does anyone have any experience with automated bottling lines? We are looking to expand our capacity and have ordered a bottling line. It requires an air compressor. I am actually looking for info on good, affordable, oil-less air compressors. I can provide more info on our needs, if you have knowledge of these. Thanks!
  14. Production & Operations Assistant

    We hold a DSP but purchase bulk alcohol to make our booze (we have a line of liqueurs). As such we're not looking for a 'distiller' but still someone interested in producing high-proof flavored spirits. We are hiring an entry-level operations assistant to assist with production, bottling, cleaning, occasionally running tours & bottle sales, and many other needs. The right candidate will be someone enthusiastic to learn more about the industry and able to work unsupervised and sometimes doing repetitive tasks. You will be working with the owner-employee (myself) and one other sales rep. We are still a small start-up, so pay will be hourly and full-time with no benefits. Equity might be available for the right candidate. We are located in Durham, NC. Full job description is here on our website: https://brothersvilgalys.com/jobs/ email jobs@brothersvilgalys.com with your stuff
  15. Best Filling Machine that is Pulp Friendly

    As we continue to develop our vodka product, we will infuse vodka before the bottling process. Does anyone have a recommendation on a small filling machine (750ml) that will allow small pulp pieces to pass through (and not clog) the filling machine? We don't want to filter out all of the pulp as the finished product takes on an even smoother flavor. We're talking orange juice pulp, but chunks. Thanks friends for any suggestions! Have a great week!
  16. Vatting and Bottle Shock

    Many people and books talk about bottle shock, and how 3 months in the bottle greatly improve the spirit as it gets its initial oxidation, rest, and mingling of chemical components. The ADI book Distiller's Guide to Rum suggest the greater part of 3 months for storage after bottling before selling, and we have definitely noticed a marked improvement in our spirits from the day they went in the bottle till a few months later. With that being said, does anyone have experience in the time of vatting making a real improvement? Example. If we have to release a product in 3 months, will it be more beneficial to blend and vat the barrels for 3 months, then bottle and sell immediately; blend and vat for 1 month then bottle and allow rest; or allow equal vat and bottle times? Eg. Does the best mellowing happen from blending in the steel vat or resting in a bottle? Thanks for the help!
  17. Microns...a tiny question(S)

    Moved onto the details of our bottling line in the final stages of setting up. Through put is hopefully going to be in the region of 200 litres per week. Initially we're going to run an enolmatic single filler, drawing product from SS blending tanks via a single cartridge filter. Our water is RO treated. Interested to know what peoples views on the following. 1) polypropylene or stainless - what's the typical lifespan of both? 2) filter size (microns) - looking for a balance of polished spirit without knocking out flavour/aroma? 3) Has anyone used the enolmatic single filler standard version not (upspecced with SS parts option). is it still working? Thanks folks, feedback on your experience is as always, greatly appreciated.
  18. Corkers and Conveyors

    Hey Everyone We are joining up with Tapi corks again this year and will be bringing our new conveyor system to the San Diego ADI conference next week. We have had a lot of interest in fitting our corkers to existing bottle conveyor systems so we have worked hard this year to make this an option. We now have stand alone corkers to fit just about any needs, we can fit a corker to your conveyor or we can put together a complete, brand new conveyor and corker system.
  19. Mono-block bottling system

    Anyone else graduate from a gravity fill to automated mono-block filler/capper? I use screw caps and bar tops which are both applied singularly with an ROPP capper. I also use a 6 spout gravity filler. Any recommendations for a manufacturer? I've contacted Borelli and Arol with no luck on an 'inbetween' system. 9,000 BPH is extreme and expensive, but 500 is not enough. Any leads are useful; thanks friends!
  20. I'm looking for a solid, very reliable and easy to use labeling machine that will produce quality results time and again no matter who is running it. My research has brought me to Great Engineering's Bench series of semi-automatic labelers. Is anyone using one of these machines? They have a good range of machines from the very simple manual MATE up to the foot activated MAX. They speak of limiting errors while being able to reproduce exacting applications over and over. Given the number of bottles we need to label, I think spending a little more on a high-quality labeler is a smart choice for us. I'm specifically interested in which Bench model you're using, why you chose that model over the others and if you're happy with it or have had issues. How has customer service been? Also, if you're not using Bench, which labelers are you using and would you recommend them? Thank you in advance! http://greatengineering.com/benchmax/
  21. Hey All, We are using a "sqround" bottle, which is to say a square bottle with tapered edges and rounded faces. Unfortunately that means our bottle does not work with hand operated, square or round labeling machines. Here is the technical specs of the bottle http://www.bruniglass.com/assets/Uploads/pdf/17291D1.pdf We are using the Bruni Contessa and I believe AAC has a similar one in the Milan. I have heard that the 105 Race RLTC SP might work but didn't have the best reviews. We are fine hand labeling until we can afford an automated line, but if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Cheers.
  22. Hey y'all, Doing some research concerning grappa production and I've found something that keeps popping up. Seems some producers water their grappas back to bottling proof in small doses over long periods of time, sometimes months. Is anyone out there doing this? Any resources out there explaining why this is done, and how it works? Thanks

  24. Hey All, We are actively looking for a contract bottling solution. As a contract producer, we have at least 3 clients now who are at the growth stage of their efforts, and are now looking for a contract bottling solution for runs of 500-1000 cases at a time. Specifically we are looking for a high speed line that can push T-tops and has a shrink tunnel for PVC caps. Additionally, there would be some dilution/filtration that would need to happen for the vodka projects. We could handle that on our end if need be, but its usually simpler to do that just in time at the bottling facility. We've talked to blue egg in Colorado.. but that solution seemed a little pricey. Any suggestions? Thanks
