  1. Good morning, 1 - @richard1 1. SPP in combination with pressure control between theoretical plates and heating power is the key to stable temperatures of the rectification column. It is the "control" of the combination of factors (column diameter, SPP physical properties, heating, pressure, temperature) that gives such results. Automation and software are the key here. 2 - @Hoochter: 1. tails. We can keep the column stable ("force it" to produce ethanol + 96%) until it contains a minimum of 3% alcohol in the tank. With lower values it is not possible to stabilize the theore
  2. Welcome. Thanks @ richard1. This is a "pun" / "word game". (I'm sorry I don't know if I'm writing well). Approx. I made a mistake. I should write: average yield during heart production. Or: During the production of ethyl alcohol + 96%. In Europe, as Richard1 wrote, neither warm-up time nor stabilization are taken into account. But the fact is a fact - with a load of about 30%, we reach 4 gallons per hour, alcohol 96%. C.
  3. Hello @DrDistillation. Thank you for your observations. I am very glad that you became interested in the film and made comments. 1 - Water. Yes you are right. We use closed-loop water. Over 10,000 liters of water stored. The temperature depends on the outside temperature. That way it could have been "colder water" for some time. So it was between 18 - 14 'C (64'F - 57'F). In addition, the machine was set for an outlet water temperature of 50-60'C (122 - 140'F) - VERY LOW. Therefore, there was more water consumption. It should be realistically set to 65-75'C (149-167'
  4. Majority of our customers are located in Europe and they require a still that can make 96% ABV (192 proof), which is a requirement to make vodka and gin, and in some cases to even have a Distillery. We became obsessed with the challenge and created a G-Still 2nd generation. Our stills now are able to achieve an average strength of distillate of 96.3% ABV (192.6 proof) with an AVERAGE production speed of 12.4L per hour. Below is a link to a YouTube video documenting the process. We apologize for the quality and length of the video, but we want to show the full process without any came
  5. Hi @Bibi, Since your wash from the local breweries will be clear (no solids), then you will be fine with a non-jacketed still. You will be able to setup a tank for cooling water. The size of the tank will depend on the amount of alcohol you intend to distill during a run (more alcohol proof in a still the longer the run will be), the ambient temperature of the distillery and few other factors. Email me at ca@g-still.com to get more into technical specifics including costs to do distillation runs from an electrical consumption perspective. We do have standalone gin columns for
  6. @Yidakimason, these systems DO NOT require a boiler or glycol chiller. This system is heated using three electric elements which heat up food grade heat transfer fluid inside the jacket which surrounds the tank. The power requirement is 18kW, 210-240V standard phase or 3-phase. The oil in the jacket is cooled using a Cooling System, which is used to reduce the mash temperature for subsequent yeast pitching. The Cooling System requires either a cold water source or a glycol chiller, but a glycol chiller is not required. Attached is a picture of our Cooling System, which includes a high tem
  7. Woodworker's generally produce a lot of dust in their workshops and they use dust collectors as well as air filtration systems in their shops. They vary in price greatly. Here is a link to woodcraft.com which is one of many woodworking suppliers. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/jet-air-filtration-system-model-afs-2000 You may also want to contact some woodworking shops in Peru to see how they deal with wood dust, which should be similar to regular dust. Hope this helps.
  8. We have a simple suggestion for utilizing your heads and tails from your whiskey and other spirit runs. These can be re-distilled in our automated GENIO still, which will give you above 190 proof neutral spirit for subsequent use for VODKAS or GINS. Our stills come with an activated carbon filter and you can select to automatically pass your re-distilled spirit through the filter to remove further aroma and flavor from it. Our GENIO Still 250 (66 gallons) is only about USD $10.1K and shipping to anywhere in the US or Canada is $1.3K, so for about $11.4K you can have a standalone plug

  10. With regards to Paul's and Steve's debate about CE components and whether they would pass inspection, there is a common misconception about what CE means which most people don't realize. There are TWO CE markings, and each one means something completely different. 1. CE = Conformitée Européenne, meaning European Conformity, which is found on products designed to be sold in Europe, and is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable European standards. This marking is mandatory for EU countries and EFTA countries such as Norway, Switzerland and
  11. This is my attempt at translating what Cezary Trzciński, the mastermind behind GENIO Stills wrote in Polish: @jheising - Yes, we do have "some experience" with SPP. I myself have been working with it for several years. You're right, it is important whether it is "SPP" or "SP" or Raschig Ring ("RR"), but even more important is matching of appropriate PARAMETERS with the packing. The shape is important - provided that the filling has the right conditions to take advantage of the shapes qualities. An example with cars (sorry - but I like them very much): If we have a great, po
  12. Very innovative technique to automate SPP production using generally accessible tools, really enjoyed the video jheising. SPP is not cheap, but is highly effective when used as column packing as indicated by MythBuster. If you can make SPP yourself, then it will definitely save you a bit of money. For anyone that does not have the time to make it yourself, we offer SPP as an upgrade option with our column stills. Feel free to DM if you're interested.
  13. Our 66 to 122 gal. stills range in price from USD $10,120 to $18,150. Our stills have the following advantages: - Automated distillation runs through touchscreen computer display and ability to save up to 6 distillation runs for future production - Full manual control with ability to observe temperature, pressure, power consumption, etc. during the entire process Two principal distillation options: Pot still mode (70 to 150 proof) for flavor rich spirits such as whiskey, brandy, rum, gin, etc. Reflux still mode (190 to 193 proof) for vodka or neutral
