I'm in the planning phase of opening a small distillery to produce rum, vodka, gin and whiskey. It appears that I'm going to have to carbon and/or chill filter my vodka and rum as initial tests show the spirit to be too cloudy and also a bit rough around the edges on taste. Can anybody please advise me what the cost per bottle/gallon/litre might be to peform carbon/chill filtering. I'm referring to the cost of carbon etc as opposed to paying off say 10k of equipment within the cost of production. That said, if people can also advise of chill filter and carbon system costs too, that would help as I'm struggling to find info. I aim to operate on a 300 gallon pot with 4+10+10 plate column set-up. Raw materials will vary from grain to molasses to fruit, depending on product. Many thanks.
For those of you making vodka, what filtering steps are you taking? Are you using a filter like this? https://www.dudadiesel.com/choose_item.php?id=cfv32 Using coconut carbon? Charcoal? Are you letting the carbon sit in the spirit for a lengthy time or are you just running it through a filter like this? Finally, are you proofing to get the ABV down before filtering or are you filtering at a high proof? Learning a lot from everyone as we plan our business. Thank you for everything friends!
Hi Everyone, I'm using powdered activated carbon to carbon filter my spirits but we're having trouble removing all of the carbon. Currently we're using a Pentek 10" cartridge filter with a 0.5 micron filter. It appears to remove all of the carbon but after a period of time we notice black sediment in the bottom of our bottles. What are other people using to filter out PAC? Any pointers or specific filter types/models? Thanks!
I wanted to take a fresh look at an older thread (http://adiforums.com/index.php?showtopic=1072&hl=%2Bcarbon+%2Bfilter). Not sure if I posted it correctly. We are looking to make/purchase a unit for carbon filtering. I was curious if any of you had results from your research. I know Classick and JohninWV were looking into the Carbac filter sheets for simplicity. Has anyone else given them a try? Thanks, Todd
