  1. Hi Guys, I've got myself a stuck fermentation and I'm looking for some suggestions. My fermentation situation was/is not exactly optimal from the beginning but I'm working with what I've got and trying to make it happen. Now for the info-dump: 4 fermentors. All with nearly identical specs (I will give metric ranges for simplicity) 3/4 have stalled. 1300 gallons of wash in each. Each tank was filled ~650gal, given 10 days, then topped off. (I know this was not optimal) All washes began between between 1.083-1.087. All washes fermented out to approx 1.006 before the fermenters were topped off to 1300 gallons. Each 750 gal batch consisted of: 600 gal Water 1666 pounds Light Brown Sugar 7.12 pounds DAP 100 gal rum backset 200 gal Voss Kveik/Yeast Slurry Each batch was sent to the fermenter at 95-97F I am fermenting in non-jacketed plastic tanks, so no heating/cooling. 2 of the ferments have now stalled at 1.022 and one has stalled at 1.015. The part that get me scratching my head is that all of the tanks did just fine with the first ~650 gal, humming right along no problems. I would consider flocculation, however all of the second-fills were done from the bottom port so yeast would have been stirred up. Thanks in advance for any ideas/fixes.
  2. I have attempted several times to get confirmation from the TTB to no avail so I am hoping you can assist. I have started a rum distillery. We are not ready to bottle so thought we would put in new and/or used oak barrels; however, I don't know if we need to get formula approval. The rules state formula approval is required before production. The rules state Formulas for rum are only required if harmless coloring doesn't exceed a total of 2 1/2 percent by volume of the finished product. How will I know if it exceeds if I can't put in the barrel first. Your insights would be greatly appreciated! D

  13. The Don

    Dunder Recipe

    Going about making my first dunder mash. Have read that 20-35% of next mash should be composed of dunder. Should same ratio of molasses / gws / H2O / yeast from original mash recipe be used or does it need tweaking in some fashion? Wondering what others have found. Thank you!
  14. Hello everyone, First, thank you for such a great community you all have created here. I am a recent chemical engineering graduate with no experience in distilling spirits other than from school labs, and drinking the Puerto Rican moonshine "pitorro". I have been researching the rum making & history, and found Rafael Arroyo's papers, thanks to Boston Apothecary. Looking forward to start this learning journey researching Arroyo's heavy rum production technique. As of right now I own a SS 13 gal, 3 inch diameter packed (copper mesh) still. Will be working with local sugar cane molasses and will be researching the C. saccharobutyricum and possible other bacteria. Thank you for your time, I know there is a vast amount of information and research already done and I will appreciate any guidance your all can provide. ' Regards, Edgared

  16. I am currently in the process of developing a white rum. I have previous experience producing a lighter rum on a smaller 6-plate column still, however, this time I would like to produce something with a fuller flavor. From experience and some lurking I have a general idea of how to accomplish this, I am just looking for some pointers or suggestions. So far I have ran a few stripping runs through our 240 gallon pot still and collected around 50 gallons of 90-100 proof low wines each run. We have a 50 gallon 6" column still with modular plates that I want to use for a spirit run. My current plan is to run 2 plates and reflux for an hour or so to compress the heads, make a suitable heads cut, then stop coolant flow to the dephlegmator and run the hearts more or less like a pot still. My main questions would be: What should I dilute the pot to? I was thinking ~50 proof; should I go lower? Currently I just want to focus on distillation parameters.

  18. Cooper River Distillers is selling off our inventory of aged spirits in barrels - available to someone with a DSP who can do a transfer in bond. A mix of bourbon, rye, rum, brandy, and experimental whiskeys (see http://CooperRiverDistillers.com for info on our product lines) Currently sitting in bonded storage in Camden, NJ. Would like to liquidate ASAP, so offers and creative ideas are welcome. The brand names and labels that we were marketing these spirits under are also available as part of a sale. All spirits were "hand crafted" the hard way, from scratch in Camden New Jersey, often with New Jersey-sourced raw materials - no sourced spirits here. All have been well-received in the marketplace and consistently garner top-shelf pricing. A full breakdown of what we have can be seen on the second tab of this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Gt07UUKG8CK40JiIVkgSOBKrg-rjiy6dAk33qbvzudQ/edit?usp=sharing Serious inquiries only - please email james@CooperRiverDistillers.com
  19. Typically we make our rum from Caribbean Fancy Molasses using DAP as a nutrient source, however, we recently decided to change up our recipe to Turbinado. I've seen where some people mention not having to use any nutrient with ingredients like panele but what about turbinado? Should I still use DAP as a nutrient? If so does anyone have a recommendation for dosage? Thank You Pertinent info: 1000 gallon batch, roughly 1.08 SG, 1000g yeast pitch.

    Spiced Rum

    I am wondering if I could get some advice on making spiced rum using maceration? I bought around 10 ingredients but have no idea where to start with blending them (amounts) or what proof I should be macerating at. I know some things like cinnamon and star anise can be overpowering quick and others take more time to steep. I was thinking of doing each one separately in their own mason jar and then blending the tinctures. Right now I am starting with a full bottle (750ml) of 80proof silver rum and eyeballing the ingredients. I just ordered a scale that does smaller weights since mine only goes down to 1 gram and I thought about making tea bags with small amounts so I could use less than 750ml bottle of rum. Any advice would be a great help! Thanks in advance
  22. I'm prepping to start on a Rum. From my reading it seems that of the sugar content in Molasses only ~52% of it is fermentable. How should I calculate the gravity of my wash? Should I divide the sugar contribution from the molasses in half or take it as is?
  23. Hi, We are a group of guys who have been talking about starting our own Nordic craft distillery in Texas. The Burbon scene is quite mature down here and apart from a few vodka distilleries there is not a whole lot more different craft distilleries around. Myself being originally from Sweden I believe there are some great new spirits I would like to bring to the US such as Schnapps, mulled Wine and nordic style single malt whiskeys. We are currently in the very early steps to build a business case and I wanted to join here to read more about what other have done and hopefully be a part of this community. we are planning on running a wide style of products but are looking for a Islay style pot still set up with a hybrid column reroute in order to also do high end vodka based products. starting small for us is key. please feel free to recommend any equipment suppliers you guys recommend as well as TTB lawyers in the North Texas region. looking forward to learn more on here /J
