  1. Angesteph, where the hell are you? On small order or great distance, shipping will be more than barrels. Zak's in TN are very good and Gibbs in SW Arkansas are good but expensive.
  2. Do you all think you have missed something? He's going to hire an architect for a 26gallon still?
  3. GRAVITY...siphon to SS Vessel.
  4. My State is a 3 tier system (distillery, distributor, retailer), but State has no direct input on price at any level. What we initially found was, Our price to distributor, Distributor+30%, Retailer +30%. But each step is negotiable/variable. Distributors do seem to discount for Quantity.
  5. I believe "Distilled from Grain" would be sufficient. And, if you distilled your botanical in the pot, no formula is needed. Vapor and maceration require a formula.
  6. This can't be a new problem, extending Bonded Area to warehouse/rick house. How do the Big Boys Bond those big barn rick houses in KY? In fact we're allowed to have locked high volume tanks outside with only a fence around them. I'd stack my conex's outside with a fence around them and add it to Bonded area.
  7. The variables are infinite. Build with the number of plates it takes to get to your highest abv desired. Then you can run less reflux, or more heat, (purposely inefficient) to get back down to the lowest abv you might desire. We bought from Paul, above. Five plates on an 8" diameter column. That's just what I decided was my sweet spot. With more or less reflux/heat we can get 70% to 90% abv. Not very important for collecting hearts in whiskey. But with fewer plates you will have trouble controlling abv in heads and tails for separation.
  8. Now watch carefully for a NEW COMPANY to appear. Wife's name, brother, friend, may not even be distillery related.
  9. I have the dreaded foam over. As for it not being a problem, I'd say you have a janitor on staff. In 170 gallon ferment I loose 20 gallons. I've had 3" of foam on 200sg ft. It's a problem for me. Ran out the damn overhead door. I have come to believe that it is the rye's nutrient value that causes the explosive foam. Now what if you mashed the rye separately at higher temps? What if you added it as doses through the fermentation? I want to increase the % of rye but fear the foam.
  10. So, I assume, now, they want the reports from date of DSP approval and the our intended date of commencement means nothing. Thanks DHD we will go back and send the Zero reports asap.
  11. They are not asking for a Notice Of Commencement, which we did file. They are asking for all the reports prior to the date of commencement. hmmm...
  12. Well, the amendment just got denied. 90 days Basically they want the Operations reports filed from the date of DSP Approval until the date we sent Letter of Commencing Operations. There is a few posts about others being told that the Letter of Commence means nothing. The Letter of Commencing Operations means...? So, I'll submit those months with all Zeros and file again. Interesting
  13. We regularly have people asking about Tied House Violations, but...
