  1. Poplar, the wood that bungs are made from, is softer than American oak. You can bang them flush without worry. Flush makes the barrel easier to roll. https://www.cincinnatidowel.com/poplar-bungs
  2. We use 6 bottle case. Both on and off-premise are reluctant to buy even a 6 bottle count case from a new vendor. We use LibDib which allow us to ship single bottles as needed to overcome this.
  3. Best thing to do is visit all the distilleries around you and speak to the distillers. Also consider joining our CA guild - https://www.cadistillers.org Read. Read. Read. Consider investing in your education at Moonshine University. They have a 6-day distillers course that is well worth the money. Good luck Kris
  4. Anybody got any extras they need to get rid of? 750ml Mason Jars Thanks Kris
  5. Don't tell Pernod-Ricard, they'll start sinking barrels of Jefferson's!
  6. Yes, but trying to solve a production problem today and DYE will be a one-week solution at best. Thanks
  7. Looking for the replacement for the nylon bearing that is at the end of a DYE agitator shaft. TIA Kris
  8. NO! There is a mixture of new American Oak and used bourbon barrels.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AFESMDS Sides x 12 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0085UZMAA Roof x 2 Use a carbide hole saw.
  10. Dave Thanks for everything you've done for this forum and Golden Beaver Distillery. You will be missed. Enjoy your retirement. Kris
  11. We bought this labeler/heat shrink from Stumpy's two years ago and it turns out it will not work with the tall labels we have decided to use for the majority of our bottles. Paid $7,500. Will sell for $5,000 FOB Chico, CA. See @Stumpy's post for the sales history and videos. Images with the housing covers off.
  12. Moisture from rain, dew and snow will leech into the barrel. Overall, not legal or a good practice. You can store in outbuildings or storage containers like a shipping connex that can be locked with a TTB approve lock.
  13. Hugo We use propane as our fuel source, too. Recommend, steam jacketed and low-pressure boiler.
  14. We use an Xpressfill filler - https://xpressfill-com.3dcartstores.com/Volumetric-High-Proof-Spirits-4-Spout-Bottle-Filler--XF460HP_p_28.html A cheap handle capper from Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Machine-Handheld-Electric-Sealing-Diameter/dp/B08B3ZHM5H/ref=sr_1_47?dchild=1&keywords=bottle+capper&qid=1623109524&sr=8-47 Laber is a Bottle-matic II -https://www.propacksolutions.com/bottle-matic-16-ii-label-applicator.html We do 50mm, 375mm and 750mm with this system. We also use a Mori 6 head gravity filler.
  15. In your case use LibDib.com You still need to do the sales leg work but they can do the warehousing without the rent cost and permitting. Also gets you out of doing A/R and chasing $$$ from your on and off premise accounts.
  16. The other option is to immediately ship to your wholesaler's warehouse after you bottle and avoid storing onsite completely. Good luck.
  17. That's the easiest way. You will need to check with your Fire Marshall on how much you can store. You will also need to add the container to your DSP TTB and CO ABC.
  18. Got room for a shipping container on the current DSP?
  19. No Fire Marshall issues. We vented using small round vents on the sides (15 of them) and two roof vents. Remember that alcohol is heaver than air so the side vents need to be at floor level.
  20. Looking for a couple of new or used plugs for one of our little stills. Thanks Kris
