  1. Your senators and congressmen can help if you are being victimized here. I would absolutely loop them in and ask for intervention.
  2. Pallet Jack scale. Not the most accurate, but works for us.
  3. True: but most of them have on staff someone (or teams of people) like Donald Snyder, and wouldn't require Whiskey Systems. Alas, I cant afford a full timer that does nothing but systems management and materials/inventory/cost accounting.
  4. Whiskey systems is to us the best there is. Was using it since the start and has seen how much it's grown. It simply covers everything. I was thinking of this the other day; IMHO if you aspire to grow your distilling business you're going to be using WS software eventually, regardless of the system you use presently. It's the only one that can handle all scales of distillery enterprises.
  5. As you can read by the different responses, this is a local code issue. Run it by your architect and make sure the plans pass muster for your building permit/CO application.
  6. If it is a high proof pump, one would assume you're using a double diaphragm air driven one. What is the application? Filtering? What's the volume? These are cheap and easy set ups if so.
  7. Yeah, if you're not pricing FOB, then you're asking for trouble. Any worthwhile distributor can handle shipping from your distillery.
  8. It's been a mixed bag here too. We have plenty for sale in different sizes in the stillhouse retail store. We do gallon and half gallon containers. We are seeing an odd swing of availability in the local marketplace; one day the local Walmart or CVS is flush with inventory. The next day they're empty. As a result, we're just telling people we have it, we will always stock it as long as there is demand, and we will watch the local pricing to stay competitive. We kind of treat it as a new sku - and one that draws first time customers to the retail store.
  9. We are having local government institutions ask for a suitable sanitizer spray. Logic seems to say that following the same use-instructions as similar-composition surface sanitizers would be an acceptable answer. Do we know if the FDA is being queried on this? Anyone have any feedback or thoughts? Too risky?
  10. So just looking ahead, I think we will see a subsequent demand for regular spray sanitizer. Not just hand sanitizer. I have been studying the products on List N, and they look not unlike what the hand sanitizer looks like (yea, depending on the product they can be very different). Any thoughts from the hive mind on this?
  11. A note of caution for those of us looking for containers. Make sure you call a real human being and confirm they have inventory before you pay (if it's possible). I nearly got stung by a website that said they had inventory of something I needed, only to call and talk to someone who said they were backordered till May and didn't know why the website said they had stock.
  12. Also, stores that sell hair salon supplies will have H2O2. Usually pretty cheap.
  13. combi-blocks.com has it cheap and in stock. Got mine overnighted. You have to set up an account.
  14. Am I wrong in saying 1/16th of an ounce equals about 1.70 grams? That's 1.77g per 100gallons. That is a very small amount.
  15. If I am not mistaken, the COVID -19 call today with the ACDA mentioned that Discus and the ACDA are in contact with the FDA and TTB on the matter. I could have misheard that, but that was what it sounded like.
