  1. Well we ordered our 300 gallon distilling system fromCorson Distilling back in April 2017. we tried to follow-up on delays - they just kept sending emails that it looks good and should be ready next month. from November 2017 till Aug. 2018. Was then sent a picture of a pot still which did not look like ours and final payment demand - tried to call and sent numerous emails but they would not respond and when asked to see a picture of our logo on it and the serial number on the still but they refused and said I was now in breach of the 5 days. I find them very unethical and we are currently looking into our options. Looking to hear feed back on how others dealt with the delay issues and what you have done to fix it. Please email me at Tom@camronconsulting.com

    My experience with Corson Distilling

    Well we ordered our 400 gallon distilling system from Corson Distilling over a year ago... and to no ones surprise... no still. Due to legal proceedings taking place I cannot comment in detail. But if you have already ordered from them... get a lawyer now. If you haven't ordered yet and are considering going with Corson, make sure to read the ADI comments and re-read them so that you are up to speed on what to expect (or not expect). Unfortunately, ADI had taken down the comments about Corson when we were doing our research. Feel free to email me for information. I will share the facts of what we have experienced. I am also including the link below to an article in the Idaho Statesman which really sheds light on the business practices and dangers associated with the products if you haven't been convinced by the comments posted in ADI.

Located in Reno, NV Crate fee is $350 Shipping $ depends on to where; local pick up available
  8. $10,000 - Selling my 500L Hoga. I had a water bath built, with direct fire natural gas burners. Heat up time is about 2 hours and the run time can be as quick as 3 hours and as slow as 8 hours depending on how many of the plates you're using and how hard you're running the dephlegmator. It has a column with up to 10 removable plates, and then a dephlegmator above the condenser. I've been able to do stripping runs, finishing runs, whisky, rum, short runs of vodka and brandy on this unit, and its size pairs very well with my stripping still. The water bath helps keep the quality high on your final product. $6000 - 600 gallon custom stripping still. I purchased the 600 gallon double walled and jacketed tank, added a 2hp agitator with a bronze boat prop and a mechanical variable drive (wired for 110V right now but can be rewired for 220V), put a 3" column and built a copper coiled condenser out of a propane tank. I've used it with a direct fire burner that is included, it was designed to evenly apply heat over a large area across the bottom to reduce hot spots and burning. This still will need to get the column reattached after being moved into place. $3000 - 10hp meadow mills hammer mill model5 with fan discharge for flour. This unit is single phase 220V so it can work anywhere, you can even run it off of a generator easily! I have 1/16" screen and 1/4" screen. The hammer mill will need new cloth bags to catch the grain, while being stored I had some rats chew through them. $500 - 1,000# +/-0.2lbs NTEP pallet scale. I went for the lower weight to get higher accuracy. I would be willing to sell everything together with a bundle price or each piece separately. I used the large still as a mash tun, so all you would need potentially is a pump and some fermenters to get your distillery started. I could process 1500# of grain per mash/stripping run and 3000# of potatoes the one time I made a potato vodka.
  9. Hello, We are scaling our operation to a larger Hagyo Distilling still and have our current automated available still for sale. The still is 119 Gallons (450 Liters) and consists of a pot, reflux column, and condenser. The still has been in operation for two years and has been used to rectify GNS and distill grain, fruit, and vegetable mashes. Highly efficient column design and automation give you precise controls of the distillation process. Please send me a message if interested. Asking price is $69,500. Marat

  12. Hi there, I am a newbie, both to this forum and to distillation in general. And I am about to set forth on one of the biggest ventures of my life: to build my own distillery from ground-up. I design things and my friend will do the metal works. My friend seems very sure of what he will be doing. But I am not. So I am here asking for your help! (Why from ground-up, you may ask. Well, a short answer is: I couldn't find any ready-built distilling equipment suitable for the place where we put our distillery.) I've just spent the last two months laboring on numbers and drawing, going from one equation to another and back. The whole process was much more convoluted than presented below as I didn't know much from the start. But here it is: 1. 500 liter still (132 gallons). This is the starting point. 2. It requires 115K BTU to bring 500 liters of 60/40 mixture of water and ethanol (40% abv) to boiling point and 755K BTU to vaporize them ALL (latent heat). (I don’t do strip run, only still run with 40abv spirit). Hence, a total of 870000 BTU is required to vaporize all 500 liters of this mixture. 3. One distillation run will take 8 hours (I just pick a number to fit into a day of work). Hence, a steam source of 109K BTUh (BTU in one hour) is needed. 4. The steam will come from a wood/coal-fired steam boiler. I did a search on “heat content of wood” and pick this number, 12MMBTU/cord (3.625m3). From there, it would need 0.03 m3 (1 ft3) of wood to generate 109K BTU. The firebox, therefore, must be big enough to burn, at least, this much wood in one hour. This is the easiest requirement 😊 5. I design a firebox, and blower and secondary combustion chamber, etc…, to burn three times that much, i.e: burning 0.9 m3 (3 ft3) of wood in one hour to generate 327K BTUh. Assume that only 70%, or 229K BTUh, of this heat acctually goes into making steam. 6. Latent heat of water is 2141 BTU/kg. With 229K BTU, the boiler can generate 107kg steam in 1 hour, equivalent to 6.8 BHP (1 boiler horse power = 15.65 kg/h of steam). Now come the confusing parts: 7. Jason Funk at Hughes Machinery states in his Basic Boiler presentation that for vertical firetube boilers, like the one I am building, every BHP needs 3 ft2 of heating surface. So my boiler would need 6.8 BHP x 3 ft2/BHP = 20.4 ft2, or 1.9 m2, of heating surface. I’ll add another 50%, bring the total of heating surface to 2.85 m2, to be on the safe side. 8. I omitted the actual calculation with the heat transfer equations and went with an estimation from CheCalc.com and the Titan Metal Fabrication websites to derive the length and surface for the immersion coil in the still. If all 500 liters in the still are water, hence 489 kg, then I would need 0.78 m2 of cooling surface to raise the water temperature from 20C to boiling point in 1 hour. I plan to use 22.1mm diameter copper tube and that brings me to a total 11.3 m of tubes. I’ll make it 20 m, to be safe again. 9. Last part: Condensing tubes. I plan to use the same amount of tubes that are in the still, i.e.: 20 m2 of 22.1mm diameter copper tube. As said, I have gone back and forth countless times between these numbers, checked them against multiple formulas and/or website (which I am glad to provide if asked). At this point, I am very much comfortable with them. But again, I have never done this before. There is still a lingering doubt in my mind, of course. I will (forever) be grateful to anyone who has the patience and/or knowledge to examine these numbers for me. If they are indeed bogus numbers, I really don't want to spend a couple grand on them before knowing... Thank you! Khoi

    Pulsing Still

    Hey guys hope all is well. So I'm in the middle of a vodka run and my distillate is pulsing. By this I mean, the distillate will completely stop for like 10-15 seconds and then all of a sudden open the flood gates for like 5 seconds. This has only happened once before on a previous run. Normally my still is pretty steady stream a little variation in flow rate but nothing this drastic. My still is a small 50 gallon it has four plates and a large random packed section with copper scrubbers and raschig rings. I am running a dephlag with little trickle of water through it to maintain 95% abv. So Why is my distillate flow rate so crazy today?? thank you.

    Electric Stripping Still?

    I'm starting up a (very) micro distillery and looking for a solution for an electric stripping still. We're going to be distilling off-grain with electric heat to start to avoid the need for a boiler system. I've got my spirit still sizing/sourcing figured out but I'm having trouble sorting out where to buy/source my stripping still. I need 1000L capacity minimum and I'm trying to avoid a bain marie style still. Most companies I've talked to are recommending not to use electric elements in the stripping still to avoid scorching, but I know people who are using electric with low watt density elements and having no issues or off flavours. Thoughts? Recommendations for companies who can provide such a still?

  21. SOLD TO A VERY NICE HOME Hey everyone! We're almost ready to receive our new still so it's time to re-post this beauty This still was awesome for me. It enabled me to grow my business for 3 years before investing in a huge system. I was able to stay fully electric for years, significantly cutting down my initial investment costs. I was able to run everything on one still, stripping ferments, spirit runs, gin runs and rum all in one place. In year 2 I added an electric continuous stripping still and that kept me going all the way to the end of year 3. Now its time to go big, and pass this starter system on. (I'm not selling the continuous stripper yet, but we can talk if you're interested) We will run this still 6 days a week right up to when we turn it off. If the buyer wants to come down and see it in action, we'd be happy to provide on-site training for a few days. Perfect for a startup Now the deets: Artisan Still Design (ASD) Delivered Nov 2014 60 Gallon Series 1 Modular Still Computer Controlled with integrated electric heat and Dephlegmator controll (can be run full-manual) 304 Stainless steel boiler, electric Baine Marie Heat (3 x 4500W Elements) - easily run on steam if you want 16 plate fully versatile stainless column with copper caps French Brandy style copper helmet Custom designed in-line Gin Basket 2hp CIP system Fully Versatile from stripping to gin/rum/whiskey/brandy and vodka on 1 still!

    Electric Steam Generator

    Has anyone looked into using an electric steam generator for heating their mash tun and/or still? I'm just starting to look at this option and wanted to see if anyone has experience on the matter. A boiler would be great, but I'm in a rental space in which I don't plan to stay in past 3-5 years and I'd also be responsible for installing and subsequently removing everything I alter while I occupy the space. This seems like a reasonable alternative to get the steam heating I desire and still keep my impact on the space low.

    Spirit Still Cooling System

    Couldn't find a good thread about this topic, so I figured I'd start one. What are people using to cool their condenser/dephleg on their spirit still? city water? recirculation? glycol? I'm weighing my options and would love to see what people have found to work best!
