  1. Silk - What does your gut say concerning size? 600 gal cooker, 200 gal pot, 8" continuous 2 gal beer per minute. Tom
  2. We are in the process of building an new facility and eager to upgrade from all electric (direct fire, bain marie and steam generator) to a 15-20hp boiler. I am currently looking at tube boilers from Rite, Hurst and Parker. I would appreciate any insight that could be offer concerning these or other boilers. We currently have a 211 gallon pot, continuous still and a 211 gallon mash cooker (upgrading to 600 gallon). Tom
  3. Adam - Do you happen to have any closeup pictures of bubble caps on these stills? I would love to see what those look like.
  4. Best deal out there for those http://bucktap.com/ email them for then case discount.
  5. We do our labeling by hand with a AP362 so I may not be much help on that one. I am happy to post up a video of it running though. I think @Sudzieuses painted bottles but maybe they can comment also.
  6. As a follow-up. There was a big delay in getting us our equipment and the communication was lacking. That said, I love the machine. We have basically the same setup as Wiggly Bridge and it is fantastic.
  7. Welcome Schoboo! I spent 20 years as an architect and 10 of that as a architecture professor before starting a distillery. I like to say that architecture led me to drinking. As PeteB said, RESEARCH! I knew nothing it about it before I jumped in three years ago. I think you will find that the folks on this forum can be very helpful! Just post your questions and see what happens. Happy to help if I can.
  8. If you are referring to the gas pump style nozzle, we have one and it works great! Easy to fill the barrels and no mess. Not sure on the gravity fill since we use a diaphragm pump.
  9. I have been using the device for several weeks now and really like it. While I have no other experience with handhelds, I can say that I am really impressed with the unit. It is well made, easy to use and very accurate. Like the other handhelds on the market, it is not TTB approved, but it greatly improves our day-to-day efforts and saves a ton of time. The battery holds a charge well and it has lots of features: bar code scanner, RFID reader, blue tooth connectivity, specific gravity, brix, proof and lots of other stuff I haven't figured out yet.
  10. Finally had an opportunity to watch this episode tonight. A lot of fun to watch. Tasmania has moved way up on the list of places I want to visit! Beautiful! I would also love to try some of your whiskey one day!
  11. Sudzie - Thanks for getting back. The system that Edwin is doing for us is very similar to yours. I try to check in every couple weeks or so but he can take several days to respond. But he does respond most of the time. Unfortunately, we have been waiting for explosion proof motors for about 8 weeks. I'm still hopeful that we will get the machine this summer.
  12. I am curious if anyone has had experience with No Limits Packaging? We ordered a bottling line from them many weeks ago and still haven't seen anything. I know that covid is playing a role with supply chain delays but we are currently more than 5x the stated delivery time. Has anyone else dealt with them?
  13. Absolutely! We run it at 74 degrees year round! 😁
