Dosing Alcohol in Blend Tanks?

Recommended Posts

We're primarily a gin distillery who's operations are expanding quite rapidly. Our process involves blending together multiple distillates in a blend tank, and then diluting down to bottling strength. At the moment, we achieve this by placing our tank on a pallet balance and pumping the distillates by hand into the tank until the correct weight is reached. This works on the scale we currently work at, as we can move the tank on and off the balance using a pallet truck. We're looking at scaling up our blend sizes to a point where moving it wouldn't be viable. I'd be interested in what solutions there are for weighing or dosing alcohol into another tank. How do you guys do it?

Load cells under the tank legs. There are a bunch of scale companies that will put this together for you or sell you the parts.
