  3. Potato Vodka

    Anyone care to share their pros and cons of using flakes versus real potatoes? Everything that I read states that potatoes are made up of so much water, that the flakes are the way to go. Being in Alaska, I also feel that storage and consistency is important. I would love to keep it Alaskan potatoes but unless some farmer starts offering flakes up here, it really just isn't feasible. Anyone have good recommendations for Potato Flake manufacturers? I would also like to use more Glacier Water and if the flakes are dried, then it give us the opportunity of using more of the glacier water.
  4. Vodka startup

    I am getting close to pull trigger to open a vodka brand. Right now it's just an idea that I am going to pursue very quickly. Instead of starting on small side plan is to start bigger right away so if demand requires I'm not short on product as have a pretty good marketing plan. I have a budget of $150,000 for equipment (would like to keep around 100k) or less If possible. I want a copper still for sure other than than that other options for equipment are open and would love recommendations. We are going have a decent budget for this and also are looking for master distillers who are willing to relocate and work hard for will make sure you have a place to stay and food to eat in exchange for that. You would get equity in the business only looking for indivuals who are ready to work ass off for next to nothing pay with potential being very large as you would own a small part of company. Please recomend equipment you you would purchase. Any tips you have and anyon interested up in relocating and working dm me.
  5. Cost to filter spirit

    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.

  7. 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.

  13. Hello all, I was hoping to get some guidance on the resting period for white spirits. Is it common to allow a period of rest in steel or plastic after distillation but before filtering/proofing for GNS/Vodka? As for gin, I've read that a couple weeks of rest can benefit the final product prior to bottling. Again, are their two resting periods for gin (after distillation, after proofing)? Thanks for the help!

    Hey guys, Any advice on getting < 190 on a 15 plate reflux still? It's been such a pain for me, but I would like any tips on making it a bit easier to achieve. I normally add about 315-330 gallons at around 125-135 proof, heat ups are about 2.5-3 hours, all plates active and bubbling, easy to pull 188, that last few points though are a pain, any advice?

  18. Vodka production...

    My family is getting into the spirits industry and i have been tasked specifically with vodka production. Im new to the spirits industry but i do have a degree in chemistry which i assume could benefit me in this industry and im sure will help me to understand some of the lingo that is used by you fellow alcohol connoisseurs. Now lets get to why I've started this thread. I've been doing research and what i have found is that the type of still needed and the type of starch source used is very important. Can anyone tell me the best type of still to be used to produce premium grade vodka and if its a column still, how many plates does it need to have? Grey Goose advertise that they distill there spirit 5 times; do they have a big column still with enough plates to only have to run it once to achieve the 5 distillations? Grey Goose uses winter wheat for there source of starch, is that the best to use? I know you can use potatoes, grapes and all sorts of other things. i was just wondering what the best to use is. If you have to actually re run each run then do you cut the heads and tails before pouring back into the still? last thing i couldn't understand was how a continuous running fermenter works? Again, Grey goose can have a batch ready every 30 ours with their fermenter system.

  22. 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!

  25. Hello there. What we have here is a Figgins Reciprocating Still. 2000 Liter system capable of making 0.5 L of 160 proof Alcohol per minute. A lot of modifications from the original state. We added custom Stainless Steel heating elements. We also added mixers to keep the wort moving during heating up. I added two extra plates on top to make 190 proof for Vodka. The control panel is an excellent piece of hardware and essential for an electrical still like this. The still operates on 208v 3 phase. You'll need at least a 150 Amp supply. If you only have 100 amps ( like I did in the old days ) you can operate the still on one kettle. I have won two awards for the Single Malt made in this still. One from ADI and one from SIS. Its an excellent still and a decent size to get your DSP and distillery going. You get all you see in the pictures. All you will need to work this still is the power / water / and air for the mixers ( if your mash has suspended grain in it ). If your rum man...you probably wont need the mixers. We've switch to steam, and need the space for a bottling machine. It's a great still. It comes with all the stainless brackets etc..you see in the photos. $35,000. Located in Charlotte NC>
