  1. According to the BAM, you may exceed 2-1/2%. How much you exceed it by is up to you. Take a look at Chapter 7, Flavored Rum and Flavored Vodka are on Page 7-7.
  2. Our Chocolate Vodka is as clear as the original Vodka. We've never had a problem. Our dosage is only 3% Simple Syrup plus the flavoring. We use a bar grade product.
  3. You are apparently quoting from some specification either in the fire code or building code but there is no difference how it is package unless it is in bottles. The MAQ for an F-1 that is sprinkled is 240 gallons per control area. Each control area must also be sprinkled to be allowed 240 gallons. You may have up to 4 control areas. The only reference to "closed container" I can find in any code is for an occupancy of H-2 or H-3. You need to have an engineer do a code review for you. There is a significant amount of information on this topic on this forum that can be gotten by searching on either AHJ or MAQ
  4. These folks seem to have it all. https://www.aerospheremonitoring.com/products If they can trigger a strobe or horn they can trigger a fan. Would your engineer be satisfied with a standard CO2 sensor that has a self contained alarm? Would they allow you to turn on the fan manually for a remote switch that is outside the danger area based on the alarm being triggered?
  5. Brought some in from China but because of minimum orders we have too many. We have 300 for sale. They are stainless and we have tested both their ability to pour and resistance to ethanol. We got samples from other companies where the gaskets shriveled in spirits. They come slightly disassembled as shown. $2.00 each plus shipping from 44212. Minimum order 150. PM me if interested.
  6. Hey Nick, For the uneducated among us (me), what does this mean?
  7. Ohio requires a COLA approval in order to sell spirits within the State of Ohio
  8. If you search on the term MAQ on this forum it will give you many of the specifics. There are many limitations in the US depending on how your building is classified. Sprinklers also come into play. After you read through the MAQ postings let us know what additional questions you have. BTW, MAQ stands for Maximum Allowable Quantity.
  9. Assuming you talking about whiskey, just on the label. This from the BAM 8. TREATMENT WITH WOOD · DISCLOSURE “COLORED AND FLAVORED WITH WOOD _________” (insert chips, slabs, extracts, etc., as appropriate) is required on labels to indicate treatment with wood · APPLICATION Applies only to whisky and brandy treated – other than through contact with oak containers – with wood: in any manner or form, either directly or indirectly, e.g., chips, slabs, extracts, etc. At any point during the production or storage process, up to and including the time of bottling
  10. I don't know what braided fishing line is made from. This link is a chemical resistance chart. If you scroll down to ethanol you will see what is safe and what isn't https://www.curbellplastics.com/Research-Solutions/Chemical-Resistance-of-Plastics
  11. Not to be snarky as well. This was your initial post. "Would also like to utilize some wind, solar and heat recapture to make the facility as green as possible." I was the first person to respond after your initial post and prior to your amendment. Cheers,
  12. All very good points Paul. He's the one who said wind, solar, not me. Since he brought it up, I had to assume that he had access or was considering building something.
  13. You said "wind, solar", these are ways to generate electricity. Where does coal come in? You say you want to be green, well wind and/or solar are a great way and using an electric still is right down that path
