  1. Any of y'all ever set product sit to try and have byproducts come out of solution and filter then? We have filtered before bottle and still had some kind of blue tinted particulate come out of solution months or days down the line.
  2. Ultra Pure has been quite good for us. They are more then happy to send a complete line of samples.
  3. Take with a grain of salt. Backset might have lactic bacteria with it. They might be dropping the Ph. Try a batch with no backset and see if it has the same drop? Just do a complete clean out of the fermentor and I would say keep it away from others encase they might have something floating around in the air. A test I used to do is I would pull a small sample and cap it before I added yeast. Leave it alone and see if any bacteria growth takes over. If so that means two things could be going on. 1. Bacteria is in my what I thought was sterile batch. 2. Bacteria managed to get into the batch from the air.
  4. Oh that is just cheating ? she cannot drink her own product.
  5. A light citric acid solution combined with a ultra sonic bath. Works wonders on my 8 inch plates.
  6. Howdy, Been working as a distiller for over a year. I have that goof ball story of dropped out of college to risk it all going to work for a start up distillery. It has been a wild ride full of excitement and horror. Employee number 3 ? So far I have learned so much but I still feel no matter how much I learn it only prompted more questions. My master distiller was a professional chemist for 12 years and a water engineer for 3 I think. I am truly blessed as he is a great resource when I have questions. We debate over everything and anything production related. I am very proud of the two awards our alcohol has won so far. ?? I am still coming for someone's gold tho. I have a final question at 24 when I started last year am I the youngest independent distiller? I do the whole process from milling to ageing. Been doing it for over a year.
