Total Proof Gallons For TTB DSP Permit?

Recommended Posts

We are going through our initial DSP permit and need to submit the total proof gallons of spirits that can be produced daily. I called the TTB to determine what exactly this entails and the rep I spoke to wasn't very clear about what was required. Does this refer to if we were running for a full 24 hours with full mash tanks, or what we are expected to be producing daily in year 1 or what we are bonded to produce? Does it include stripping runs or just finishing runs? Does it include the cuts or are we supposed to assume a percentage of loss?

I was hoping someone who has already submitted their DSP permit could help me get to the bottom of this, or let me know if this is something they even check or care about. Appreciate the help.

I calculated the maximum proof gallons our stills would be capable of producing in a long day of distilling. As far as I understand the TTB they really don't care if it's stripped or finished product, taxable alcohol is taxable alcohol no matter how it's sliced.

However, I am not approved yet so I can't tell you if it's been an issue or not.

I used the total of expected hearts cut in a one run day to figure it out. Didn't have any problem. I think they are double checking those #s against your bond, to ensure it is sized correctly. Like skaalvenn said, doesn't matter what proof you have it at, there's the same amount of booze in there. No tax on water, Yet.

Thanks for the help. That makes sense that it is just to ensure you are bonded correctly, might have to increase our bond.
