  1. I am looking for a better way to adjust proof in liqueurs. By better, I mean better than add water, re-distill sample for obscuration, repeat, etc. I'm not that smart, so an example would be great. We proof our basic spirits with hydrometers, by weight, Can someone walk me through the correct way to take a small sample and figure out how much water to add to bring it down to a specific proof? I understand that we would still need to re-distill the end product to ensure it is, indeed, the correct proof. Thanks, Todd
  2. My name is Mike, and I've taken the plunge in the craft distillers arena. I've spent the better of the past 2 years getting Belizean Rumpopo approved by TTB, ABC, etc... I have a DSP license,and ABC type 07 license. I do not distill, I import my rum from Florida. Rumpopo is a rum and cream base liqueur that is a favorite belizean adult beverage. You can find a ton of recipes online, but I assure you that none compares to my father's recipe, especially when it comes down to shelf life emulsion, texture, most important taste. My product is in 3 retail location in the bay area and I'm work
  3. Hi all, I'm looking for a straight kjeldahl attachment. I've got one with a 75* bend for connecting directly to the condenser but I'd like a straight in, straight out option like you see in the TTB videos. This is for distilling alcohol samples to remove obscuration during proofing. Like this but with straight glass for connecting via silcon tubing or corks (50 seconds into video). I don't have a lot of counter space and my current setup takes the entire table.. -NAB
  4. We have recently experienced some problems when using the standard TTB procedure for determining ABV by lab distillation of liqueurs containing above 30% solids, especially if we have milk solids present. If we start with 100 ml of sample, add 50 ml of rinsing water and then distill off the recommended 96 ml what is left in the boiling flask is so thick that it is impossible to deal with. The actual ABV of the sample is known because we know how much neutral spirit had been added and we know the total volume (from the total mass and measured density). This corresponded very closely with t
  5. I can't seem to get a clear answer from this one, excuse my ignorance on the subject. When creating a certain liqueur with my former employer, we treated sugars(maple syrup) and other additives(coffee and coffee extract) as water when proofing. I figured the relatively high density of these liquids may skew the results. They were off a bit from treating them like water and we found ourselves correcting with water when we got the results back from the lab with the seamless glass still that gave us a precise ABV. This was an enormous pain in the ass and we found ourselves going back to the lab t
  6. I am developing a computer program for blending of liqueurs containing sugars. I do not run a distillery myself, but I understand one possibility that I should cater for as an ingredient in liqueur production is an infusion made by soaking fruit in rectified spirit. What proof range is used for the rectified spirit? An internet search found only DIY instruction for people who buy a bottle of vodka and make their own infusion at home. I have struggled to find information on how this is done on a commercial scale. Apart from the starting proof of the spirit, I am also interested in knowing
  7. One of my products is a software package for doing proofing calculations when blending, diluting or fortifying spirits. Over the years a few customers have asked me whether the software could be used for calculating blends involving liqueurs which include syrup or granular sugar. Unfortunately my software cannot cope with anything beyond pure alcohol-water mixtures. Whenever I have followed up on these requests I have found the producers of the liqueurs were very reluctant to explain their calculation needs in any detail. The email exchanges always died out quickly and I concluded that these
  8. This July I will have approximately 300 PG of blueberry distillate available for sale. As long as I know in advance, I can distill to whatever proof you desire, anywhere from 80-190+ proof. $25 per proof gallon, First come, first serve. FOB Columbia, Illinois 62236. Thanks, Adam

  10. Hi everyone ! I'm looking for some professionnal advice on proofing liqueurs. We have a couple of interesting ideas but we lack some knowledge about proofing sweet spirits. I read other posts but to be honest I don't feel I know everything I should to commercialize a liqueur right now. We need to be pretty accurate when it come to alc. % etc. .. I'm in Eastern Canada so I would be please if someone in the Northeast would accept to receive me at their distillery to exchange on our practices and ideas ! Thanks guys Jean-Philippe
  11. We're shooting for 4g sugar per oz of product. Anything I should know about sweetening agents? Our initial recipe calls for apple juice, white sugar, and molasses. The sweetness seems about right in terms of sugar, but just not incorporated into the spirit so much as some liqueurs (maybe this just develops in the bottle?). The mouthfeel might be a little thin.
  12. Skip Rock Distillers in Snohomish, WA (North of Seattle) is looking for a distillery production intern. We are a family owned craft distillery that takes a farm to bottle approach on everything we do. That means sourcing rye, potatoes, berries, apples and walnuts from local farmers. We then take those raw materials and mash, ferment, distill, and age all of our products at our distillery in the heart of Snohomish's Downtown Historic District. The intern will work closely with the Skip Rock team to learn the following skills: Distillation of Spirits Management of Different Mashes
  13. After digging into many posts related to start ups, production, volume, sales, etc., I cannot locate any data - anecdotal OK - related to the amount of production / distribution (whether self or through distributor) / tasting room sales, etc. that a start up distillery had in Y1 and a comparison of same to Y2 or Y3. I'm not talking revenue - just cases (or bottles/barrels put up if applicable). I'm close to receiving approval on a loan for a small downtown (town=6000 people) Main Street location distillery and tasting room in (touristy) CO. I plan to produce vodka and two liqueurs and have
  14. Alright guys I have been exposed to some magical chocolate liqueur recently and I was curious if anyone has some insight on how to infuse vodka with chocolate and then distill it (I believe the distillery claimed that it was not from an essence or flavoring added into vodka but rather chocolate infused and then distilled). Here are some things to feed off what would give a get a nice aroma and flavor i.e. types of chocolate, % of cocoa, baking chocolate etc. So if anyone has some ideas or places to go with this please feel free to post them! Thanks everyone!

  16. I like making my own vodkas, infusions and liqueurs. I have nothing against drinking 190 proof Spirytus or Everclear either. It is a shame that this good stuff is not easy to get nowadays. People in Europe add it to fruits, teas and juices. I am a hobbyist but no stranger to distilling. However, making fruit vodkas, liqueurs and cremes interests me most.
