Hi there!

Here's a link to The Finance of Whiskey: costs, investments, losses, energy input, costs per bottle, revenue, total costs and profit projections if you want to start making whiskey:

Interesting, but you assume 96% product yield in your screenshots?

Nope. In the case of whiskey, and in this example, we assume a yield of 60% That is the alcohol percentage where hearts come over at, Silk. We expect to turn around 90% of the total alcohols created during fermentation into new make spirit. So only a loss of 10% to heads and tails.

All right! We had an amazing two days in Madison, WI, at the Two Tall Distillery. Two couples that run a distillery next to their day time jobs and the automated iStills help them out doing that. They come in in the morning and start things up and clean out / refill in the evening. The iStills are remotely monitored during their automated runs! A great place to have the workshop. We had 15 participants. One "old dog" that came in a sceptic, having worked on traditional systems for 30 years. And 14 customers or start-ups, earlier in their learning curve. All had a great time. I expect a few of the participants may chime in here at the ADI forums. Two days of distilling gin and making whiskey and doing extractions. Heck, one group even made pumpkin spice essence! More pics on the event soon.

While I was away, my staff have been amazingly busy back in the Netherlands, clearing the factory and assembly halls as much as possible. Kudos to the team for putting 7 units on transport just this week. Among which a 5000 liter (1300 gallon) beast that we build in under 4 weeks as a special order for a distiller that needs to start distilling before Xmas.

Here are some pictures ...
