  1. I have received several private messages on this and am finding a common theme--people haven't yet figured out what they need to do to get re-certified after their State Board of Pharmacy's temporary COVID provisions expire, and the FDA's temporary guidelines expire at the end of the year. It was upon digging into the Oregon regs that I could see this was not going to be feasible for our distillery. I am starting to wonder if any distilleries are going to stay in this business once they see the regs and red tape involved. After all, pharma is the only industry more regulated than ours. Ugh.
  2. I have a lead on a large government contract (100,000+ units/year, bid already submitted) for WHO formula hand sanitizer that I am going to be unable to fulfill long-term. I told the prime contractor , who is located in Texas, I would reach out nationally to see if other distilleries are staying in the sanitizer business. The state of Oregon is making it extremely difficult if not impossible for distilleries to continue to be in this business after September. If you are staying in this business long-term, please get in touch. bev.root@ewingyoungdistillery.com
  3. Thanks Blackheart and yes I got it, Andy, thank you.
  4. Andy, I emailed you for a shipping-included quote.
  5. Combination of a barrel handtruck and the forklift forks squeezed together. Not at the same time of course. 😅
  6. Grab-O-Matic Thanks Andy! That is exactly what I had in mind. In the meantime, I came up with another solution . Someday I will get one of yours! Very cool. Do you have US distribution?
  7. Bierling, we often do, but we also carry around single barrels and want to offload single barrels from our barrel truck.
  8. Does anyone have tips on the purchase of a forklift-mounted whiskey barrel grabber? Trying not to break the bank. The one I **really** want is $3500 and just not in the budget. I am thinking about something like this. https://www.globalindustrial.com/p/material-handling/drum-barrel/drum-lifters/single-fork-mounted-drum-gripper?infoParam.campaignId=WR&msclkid=13889c1e9c6a18cf859ac23099ed1bca&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=[ADL] [PLA] [Material Handling] {Drum %26 Barrel} (Good)&utm_term=4582420874174874&utm_content=Material Handling - Drum %26 Barrel&adlclid=ADL-824b5801-14a4-4ce2-9d47-0c19433aecf5
  9. How much do you want for your race labeling machine?
  10. I entered this for 2018. The packaging is a separate category from the spirits. I asked and was allowed to submit two bottles rather than three and the submittal fee is actually lower than most. I think having awards helps with consumers, which is why I am doing it.
  11. I know it's a long shot, but thought I would throw it out here. I would love to find a bookkeeping service or a part-time bookkeeper with Whiskey Systems experience and/or distillery cost accounting experience. Any referrals are welcome!

  12. I have the same situation on our farm and I am keeping our barrels as far away from the animals as possible. I suspect The Nose (Nancy Fraley) would advise the same. What if the wind changed for a whole month? It might affect your spirits. I have too much $ tied up in my inventory to take any chances.
  13. My explosion proof fan cost about $1006 including shipping. https://www.grainger.com/product/DELHI-1-3HP-115-208-230VACV-Shutter-23N613?findingMethod=orderHistory It was easy to install.
  14. I am going to lose my mind with all the passwords I have to manage these days. Can anyone recommend password management software that plays well with the TTB website?
