Anyone have experience w/ Affordable Distillery Equipment LLC??

Recommended Posts

I can’t say enough good things about the service and attention we have received from Paul and his team. We have a custom configured 300 gallon  Ultra Pro Vodka still, 1200 stripping still, 5x 1200 gallon fermentation vessels and a 1200 gallon mash tun. We have worked through the growing pains of opening a distillery together and I continue to receive the best of service a full year now after taking delivery. Changes and improvements to the equipment and workflow are met with enthusiasm and the backing I receive from Paul’s team has been invaluable. They are easy to work with and always willing to lend a hand and answer any questions. When the time comes to plan any expansion Paul will be the first call I make.

California Distiller’s: $20,000 Rebate Available

Time is running out.  The State of California is providing significant rebates to distilleries using natural gas (SDG&E, PG&E, SCE, SoCal Gas) that implement solar thermal systems to replace or augment their use of natural gas.  The California CSI Thermal Rebate Program https://www.gosolarcalifornia.ca.gov/solarwater/ has been extended for an additional 6 months with unused funds needing to be distributed IMMEDIATELY. In its effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the State’s commitment to supporting clean and sustainable business, California is providing significant rebates to adaptors of clean and efficient solar thermal technology. Recent developments in small scale distillation technology now put these significant rebates within reach of craft distilleries. 

The CSI rebate qualified Sunshiner®  is a zero carbon emitting, solar powered, low temperature distillation system (125°- 155°F at ambient pressure) now available to California distillers.  The Sunshiner Natural Distillation System, capable of doubling the output of your current traditional distillation equipment, provides an onsite solar thermal and electric energy system, a Sunshiner® low temperature still (utility patent # 10421030) and real time app accessible carbon/ghg monitoring. For distilleries interested in becoming a quantifiable leader in clean and climate conscious distilling, The Sunshiner system is available to qualified distilleries with no money down for a limited time. (limited 2 systems per utility)

Hi Everyone.  We have been crazy busy so I haven't posted on this topic for a while.  Anyway, below are just a few of the stills and other devices that we have completed or are working on in the last few weeks.

Below is a 20 gallon Baine Marie R&D still with one of our filtering systems on a cart.

The still below is for hemp processing.  It distills valuable terpenes while decarboxylating the CBD oil.

Below is another filter housing.

The Signature series still below will look incredible when it is complete.

Below is one of our Oil King Hemp processing stills.  These are selling like hot cakes.  They cost as little as 1/10 the price of a CO2 system and do a better job.  We have them in sizes ranging from 8 gallon to 2,500 gallon.  No matter the size the little stills will do a run in 1.5hrs.  They also make great stripping stills and are faster and more efficient than most continuous column stripping stills

Hi Paul. Is their any progress on the countinious column? 

The engineer that did most of the design work with me lives in Ukraine.  We are 8 months into the process to get his work visa.  He should be over here in 3 to 4 months, then we will move ahead with the continuous stills and some other fascinating things.  We have a prototype that works really well, however I decided that we should wait until the designer is here before we move forward.  Also currently our equipment testing lab is being used as a hemp to CBD processing facility until we get our large process facility completed, which will take another 2 to 3 months.

I had to decide a few months back on whether to continue to develop the continuous columns or start to produce CBD in that space.  The profitability of the CBD is such that I felt that my only choice was to start producing CBD and put continuous column stills on the back burner.

 

We do have vacuum stripping stills for sell.  They are incredibly fast and are almost exactly like our Oil King reclaim stills.  They can be heated with a hot water boiler that can be fired by lots of different fuel sources including wood, natural gas, propane, electricity or even solar, if you are in the right area.  We run the oil king still for reclaiming ethanol from our CBD process.  We can do a demo in our CBD lab of the reclaim still doing a stripping run so that you can come here and see it, if you like.  We simply put an 8% wash in there and strip it out to low wines.  We have the industrial ethanol permits that allow us to do that.  Below is a picture of the Oil King which also makes a great vacuum stripping still.

Hi Paul,

I've sent you a request through your email a month or two ago but I guess it fell in spam. I just sent another one now that our project has gained momentum. Look for an adress with a domain name @rocketmail.com.

 

Thanks!

I received the email and replied.  I'm not sure what happened before.
