  1. Good points. But, I don't think this is xenophobia (at least I hope not). It's more like multiple red flags flying all at once. "I'm from company so and so from where and where" and I google it and it doesn't exist (at least according to Google). "Please use my trusted shipper from Somewhere, USA" with a random Gmail email address and I google that, and the shipping company doesn't exist as far as I can tell. It's, "what credit cards do you accept", not will you take cash, ACH, EFT, Wire, etc. The first couple times I gave the benefit of a doubt and it crashed when I wanted them to a
  2. I've been getting a lot of these since early May. Usually they lose interest once I tell them they have to figure out their own freight (since they seem to be from companies I can't verify exist and they want me to use shipping companies that don't seem to exist). I've started ignoring them. It has to be some sort of scam, not sure how, but like you said, seems suspicious and not worth my time.
  3. I'd love a small centrifuge that didn't break the bank. Biofuel uses them and are affordable, but almost definitely not food or alcohol safe.
  4. Did any of you fill out the voluntary sanitizer question form they sent out a while back?
  5. The VFD is apparently single phase and converts to 3 phase for the motor. Perfectly normal.
  6. I could very well be wrong, but to me it looks like Registrar doesn't do anything that you couldn't otherwise easily do yourself. Registering your facility and product (even one that doesn't match the WHO/FDA guidelines like a gel) is relatively simple (and free) once you understand some basics. What I'm really wondering is what the process was for selling hand sanitizer before COVID. It looks to me that any company could have registered with the FDA before COVID and started selling. That seems incorrect to me but how? Is this regulated by the states somehow? Are there additional lic
  7. 🤯 because there aren’t any? If you think 3 to 5 seconds is going to magically clean out a filthy bottle, there is probably a bridge for sale.
  8. Dust and cardboard are removed by your main filter when filling your bottles.
  9. I think if you're concerned about your bottles contaminating your spirit, I'd find a different source of bottles. Mainly I'm concerned about removing dust and cardboard particles.
  10. Just a thought, but in the interest of price, what about a system drawing from the bottling tank (which already has its filters) and returning to the tank? You'd probably need one more pump unless your tank is small enough for gravity return, but save the keg and filter. This would also save priming the keg and cleaning two extra components when you're done (keg & filter).
  11. NGS is produced using a fundamentally different piece of equipment than a batch pot still. A pot still can very definitely improve NGS since a continuous system can not remove all heads.
  12. The CVS price for their 60oz bottle is about $35.21 a gallon if you equalize the alcohol percentages (80% vs 62%). The Purell looks to be $54.67 (80% vs 70%) but you get lots of pumps for that. Purell refills were about $50 a gallon pre covid.
