  1. Small Crafty Start-Up looking for like minded entrepreneurs. We seek to grow it small and grow it strong Quality essential to success
  2. My first single malt run was somewhat of a failure (I had a 15" krausen that was fairly dry that didn't fall and had to be scooped out of the fermenter by hand and SG didn't go below 1.02 - it was constant from day 4 to day 7 so stripped it). I heated it to 152F waited 90 min (starch test good) heated to 165) cooled and added yeast according to manufacturer's specs. After the required time at 150-55F do many of you heat to pasteurization (~180F) to kill bacteria before you cool and pitch? If so, do you add glucoamylase on the way down or in ferment to ensure more simple sugar conversion? Any help to get my process working a bit better is appreciated. Thanks
  3. Looking for a good home for a dependable still. I'm looking to get is sold as quickly as possible. I need to get it off my friend's floor so he can install his own equipment. He's been nice enough to store it for me! I had been saving it in case I got back into the industry, but I've decided to stick with my day job! Still Description: The still is a Series 2 Bain Marie Style Artisan Still from Artisan Still Design. It originally cost $85K new. It was used primarily as a stripping and finishing still to make whiskey, gin, and even small batch vodka. 150 GL double jacketed copper pot with 4 inch drain, pressure gauge, thermometers, etc. Can be run with steam or as a double boiler using 6 heating elements (elements not included). It's set up for either Steam or as a double boiler. I ran it with oil in the jacket as a double boiler and used heating elements to run it. I didn't have a boiler, so I used the electric setup. I do not have controller...these can be built for minimal expense or you can contact Sherman Owens for a control box if you need. If you decide to run it with steam, you wouldn't need a controller. Other Items: 1/2 Copper (Top) and 1/2 SS kettle (bottom). 4 plate copper column with copper bypass, ports for thermometers on each plate. Plates are bubble caps. Stainless steel dephleg with thermometer port. Stainless steel condenser with thermometer port. Stainless steel parrot. SS Jackets, piping, etc. 2 hp Agitator with motor, housing, and mixing shaft. CIP ports for pot and column. Has all seals, valves, thermometers, pressure gauge, pipes, tri-clamp fittings, tri-clamp seals, etc. Just needs to be put together. I'm asking for $25K OBO plus shipping and it would ship out of Prosser, Washington. A Friend is storing it for me at his distillery there. He'd box it up and get it shipped to you, if you decided to buy it. If interested in the still, please IM me. I am looking for a cash buyer and will not lease or use a payment plan. I will entertain lower offers. Thank you!
  4. Our first whiskey mash (100% single malt barley) and fermentation is nearing completion (SG @ 1.01). We ferment and plan to strip grain on. The krausen on the top of our fermentation is about 8" thick. Any recommendations of how to handle the krausen? Do I use a shovel and remove it before I pump to the stripping still? Do I wait for krausen to fall - it is so thick I don't think it will. Thanks for any advice.
  5. Good morning everyone! I have a ton of hard red wheat that was grown for me by a local farmer/friend/neighbor that I will not be able to get through and would like to offer it up to other craft distillers. I don't have the exact variety in my memory (I can certainly get it if that's important to you) but the value of this wheat is that it is lower in protein (i.e. less foaming issues) than standard wheat that is sold on the market. It tested at 10.2% protein when we harvested, can/will test again for verification. This is in comparison to 14% protein which is what farmers target to not be penalized by elevators/mills. The wheat will be brought to the elevator to be cleaned prior to shipping. Pricing would be as follows: $0.18/lb - supersacks FOB Grand Forks, ND $0.22/lb - 50lb bags FOB Grand Forks, ND Wheat will be available to ship early/mid June. I am willing to deliver if within a reasonable distance, otherwise I can/will arrange freight and add that cost to the total. Also should mention for those who it might want/need to know this wheat was grown in Minnesota. For questions or to place an order you can PM here or email at tyler.seim@redpinedistillery.com Thanks!

  12. Hi to all, I was wondering if anyone here ever tried to make an all wheat whiskey. I know they exist and I’ve had a few... but can’t find much info on them. Malted wheat is not the easiest grain to find. So I was wondering if it would do a huge difference in taste to use unmalted. We work with a single farmer and he doesn’t have any malting capacity. Thank you very much! Charles Boileau
  13. What milling specs would you use for grain-in malt whiskey mashes? Looking for thoughts as they relate to efficiency and ease of processing/pumping. Are there any downsides to milling to/near flour? I recently tried a mash with malt milled to 1.8 and had a lot of problems running the mash through my impeller pump.

  17. I'm looking for some suggestions for exogenous enzymes to use in our grain-in mashing. I've mashed a ton of single malt before, where exogenous enzymes were unnecessary. I may use malt down the line for conversion, but initially am looking to use enzymes until I get a firm grasp on our equipment's heating and cooling quirks/capabilities. I'm leaning towards a certain supplier I won't mention as to not skew people's advice. Lots of suppliers on here, but looking for success stories from producers. Thank you!

  19. *****Edit: Thank you for your interest! I have found a new position.
  20. I am currently an Assistant Distiller at two distilleries in Portland: a leading craft distillery producing multiple mainstream spirits categories, and a producer of fruit brandies, liqueurs, and grappa. Between these two roles I have developed a broad range of skills applicable to the entire distillation process, including recipe creation and mash production, fermentation and distillation, bottling and tasting room sales, and cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning. I’m looking for a new position with room for growth. Though I’m most experienced with distilling, I also love beer and brewing. My interests are far-reaching, and I’m particularly keen on collaborative projects with other local producers, agriculturally-focused sourcing, and quality-oriented production. I’m willing to do a virtually unlimited amount of hard, tedious labor (see: making grappa), but I’m really seeking learning opportunities. In other words, I’m not interested in a full-time bottling gig if there are no development opportunities to go along with it. I also have a background in accounting and finance, and though I’ve left the corporate world behind I retain a deep-seated enthusiasm for spreadsheets and budget analysis. I’m also pretty well versed on lean manufacturing and management techniques in the industrial setting. I have an open mind about what kind of position would be a good fit. Part-time work would be ok, and so would a position outside the Portland metropolitan area (but within driving distance). If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and focused person to lead or support a beer, spirits, or winemaking operation, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you and talk about how I can help.
  21. I am a seasoned distiller with 4 years under my belt and I am looking for growth at a new venue. I am looking for a Head Distiller position or a higher up position than assistant distilling. I have much experience with larger and smaller scale craft distilling from start to finish of the process, with a focus on whiskies and syrup based alcohols. I have done literally everything in a distillery from grain to bottle. I have helped to develop and grow a now flourishing distillery and am now ready to spread my wings, learn more and take on a new world. I have created and modified recipes for the distillery I worked for as well as for other distilleries under contract. I have made recipes increase their yield by 175% without changing grains or flavor of recipes, as well as managing employees, representing distilleries publically, creating huge online SOP / knowledge databases. I have a considerable amount of pride in making what I put my heart into and making the best spirits. I also have the knowledge to help your distillery with recipes, management, become more efficient and everything in between. I am willing to relocate to the right fit and am very free at the moment. Feel free to contact me at whiskeysmithy@gmail.com, I will happily get you my resume, recommendations (all which should impress) and cover letter. Thank you for your time, I look forward to working with you.
  22. Hey Guys, We have about 5 totes of extra bourbon we would like to offer for sale. Would be happy to send samples. They are 250 gals at 115 proof. Please email me at joe@questbrandsinc.com. We can only sell to someone with a DSP and that can transfer in bond. Cheers, Joe
  23. Our white whiskey has been occasionally slightly cloudy after proofing - the first 4 runs did not have this issue. The last two, we've been forced to do a second distillation to get a more clear spirit. We've tried distilled water and DE-mineralized water for proofing, neither have solved our cloudiness problem. We've also done full runs making a cut every 1/2 gallon to ensure we're not getting tails cloudiness in our bottle. Lastly, we've dissembled and cleaned the columns... Even when the 80% distillate is crystal clear, it's cloudy when diluted. I will note it's not SUPER cloudy, in fact we have been arguing what constitutes 'cloudy' but it is definitely not crystal clear like the 'big boys' on the shelves. I just learned about saponification, and our next project is diluting over the course of a few days to see if that helps.... Thoughts?
  24. Hi all, Fairly green distiller here with an hypothetical that I thought of while trying to wrap my head around some of the TTBs regulations regarding formula requirements. Say I develop a mash bill of 80% corn, 10% malted barley, and 10% rye. Say I distill in twice (not that important) and the proof at distillation is 150. What would I designate the distillate? Would I designate it as the general class 'whiskey'? Or would I designate it as corn whiskey since it fits the S.O.I.? Now follow close. Say I wanted to use that distillate both for a white corn whiskey as well as a bourbon. Could I use a singular batch for both? What then would I call the distillate? Would I need formula approval since I would have to designate it as one spirit (whiskey or corn whiskey) then change it's class/type to another (bourbon) even though bourbon does not require a formula approval normally? Now focusing on a singular barrel of that sweet, sweet bourbon. Say I partially-harvest an amount in 1 year for a small bottling. Would the aging clock stop even though the whiskey leftover never left the barrel? Or could I age it longer than 2 years and get the Straight Bourbon designation? If I am able to, how does that affect formula requirements? All three of those products normally don't require a formula and I'm in no way using weird techniques in production. Would I still need a formula approval for at least 2?
