Hi everyone! Rockwell Rutter here from Distillery University; I wanted to let everyone know about our new 3-day Workshop at 3 Howls Distillery in Seattle, WA (June 7-9) This Workshop allows you to actually take control of a professional-grade reflux still and produce your own batch of spirits under the supervision of award-winning distillers. We'll also have lots of classroom time to learn from various experts and get all your questions answered. All students also receive a FREE Lifetime Membership to our online classes (currently at over 47 hours of content and a $499 value). Also, everyone is entered to win a free 3 gallon reflux still (the same type we use during the Workshop). We announce the winner on Sunday, just let us know where to ship it! If you're looking to get ACTUAL hands-on experience, this is the Workshop for you. We'll have a mash already made up for you, so all you have to focus on is getting your spirits to come out just right. After your spirits run is complete, you'll then be shown how to blend with distilled water in order to get the strength and flavor profile you're looking for. From there, you'll bottle your finished spirit and take it home with you! We'll also run the bottling line and a few other hands-on activities. Topics to be covered in the hands-on portion of the class are: Mashing Grain choice Temperatures Fermentation Choosing the base product Yeast choice Vessel choice Distillation Making the cuts Temperature choice Equipment design/performance Still performance For the classroom portion of the Workshop, industry expert Todd Buckley covers: Welcome to the Beverage Alcohol Industry History of Distilling in America Regulation Highlights to Distill in the US The Competitive Landscape of Spirits in the US Introduction to Biology: Fermentation Grains, Fruits and Yeast Yeast Strains Introduction to Chemistry: Alcohol Ethanol, Methanol, Isopropanol Organic Acids Ethylene and Ethyl Ether Esters Filtration Vodka distillation Properly Using a Hydrometer Substrate Choices Achieving 190 proof Bottling Brandy Distillation Fruit Choices Achieving 160 proof Filtration Proofing Botanicals Blending for Gin Botanical Choices Maceration, Decoction and Infusion Brewing Skill for Whiskey Distillation and Aging Substrate Choices Fermentation Distillation Techniques Aging Introduction to Physics: Distillation Heating, Reflux and Condensation Still Design Weight, Volume and Temperature If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me any time by phone or email.

Hi everyone! Rockwell Rutter from Distillery University here. I wanted to give everyone an update on our Hands-on Workshop coming June 20-24 in Spokane, WA. The March Workshop was an absolute success; we had folks come in from all 4 corners of the country to participate in the 5-day event and everyone left with a smile and new energy for their distillery project. In addition to the classwork and the actual hands-on learning at Tinbender Craft Distillery, we also organized a few after-hours events for people to enjoy. We toured Spokane Industries (tank manufacturer) and held several group dinners and tasting events at local bars and restaurants. There were also a few surprise gifts for everyone (that I won't reveal here), except for one. In addition to the recorded footage of the entire Workshop now available through their account on DistilleryUniversity.com, and the accompanying Powerpoint presentations, attendees were also gifted an EXTENSIVE Business Plan Formulation tool. This software tool will help them with forecasting, expense planning, batch costing, and a host of other business plan requirements as they move closer to starting their distilleries. Now that the Workshop is over, we're gearing up for the next one this June. The Early Registration discount ends on 5/22, so don't miss your chance to save $500. Every registration comes with a free Lifetime Access membership to the online content, so you'll have the benefit viewing the Workshop you attended, as well as the 37 hours of other content that's currently available. We'd love to have you join us next month. Here's a link to learn more: https://distilleryuniversity.com/hands-on-workshop/. And here's a link to a short (one-minute) video showcasing some of the actual hands-on learning: https://vimeo.com/163875286 Here's what a few attendees had to say: “I congratulate the team at Distilling University for the training workshop they have organized. The workshop included a good mix of seminar and on-site education, highlighted by our visit of an equipment manufacturer and local distillery. Furthermore, I made great friends and professional contacts in the group with which i am still keeping in touch. Thank you to Rockwell, Dan and Todd. Cheers!" - E. Garcia. "Thank you very much for an excellent week of learning. It was well worth the effort. The Workshop paid for itself before the first break on day one." - J. Calderon. "So much practical experience and knowledge. Learning facts is fun, but learning why they're important and how to use them is awesome." - A. Lyon Cheers!

The course covers both basic and advanced distilling techniques and the legal and business aspects of starting a distillery. It is not only tailored to prospective distillers, but also is of great benefit to liquor industry professionals who want to improve their knowledge of the craft distilling movement, understand the process of distilling, and hone their skills in tasting distilled spirits. During the workshop, participants will learn the entire process of starting a distillery from fruit selection, mashing, distillation, and packaging, to the legal and business aspects relevant to North America, including the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, certification and label approvals, location requirements, and state regulations. Students will also receive hands-on distilling experience on a custom Kothe still at Koval Distillery. A sensory seminar during the workshop will teach various sensory aspects of different types of alcohol, including eaux de vie, vodkas, whiskeys, grappas and liqueurs. Participants will sample many different products and learn to identify positive as well as negative aspects of distillates. Hosts Robert Birnecker and Sonat Birnecker Hart, founders of the award-winning Koval Distillery and the manufacturer's representatives for Kothe in the United States, will be giving personal insights into the practice of distilling and starting a distillery, and other lecturers will speak on their areas of expertise.
