Looking for any helpful tips or DIY equipment to separate liquid from a corn & malt mash. We have been doing this by hand using filter bags at about 3 gallons at a time but this is very inefficient and doesn't always work when doing a 50 gallon wash. Saw that King's County uses a machine that does solid/liquid separation very well but it costs about $25K, so that's not going to happen. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
Hello guys and girls, I was wondering how you seperate your wheat grains after mashing from your wort? We tried a sieve plate but it kept cloging up and was dead slow. Tried replacing half the malted wheat with malted barley but that wasn't giving us the flavour profile we were looking for. Tried rice hulls but they are quiet expensive over here. Any good ideas exept a liquid solid seperator? Cheers!
My systems are all electric, so separation is a must. At the moment, I have a way to separate via a press, but the press requires a hiccup in the process flow while it is filled/pressed/emptied. I would love to have a Russell Finex machine, but 20k (as I hear they cost) is not a doable number right now. I know Dehner started a thread about a version of this that he is designing, but does anyone know of a secondary market for equipment like this? Are there any other manufacturers making something like this for a lower price? Alternatively, for those unable to distill on grain, how are you separating solids from your wash? Any input appreciated. ( )
Hi Guys, I'm currently researching ways that we can deal with solids for making whiskey in our still. To start and to keep our initial equipment costs down we are looking at getting a microbrewer friend of mine to custom make our wort for us. Eventually though we would like to do it ourselves and I'd like to know how other people are dealing with this. I would really like to ferment on the grain if possible and separate after. Production wise we're looking at 300-600 gallon batches once per day. Agitation does not seem possible because of the shape of our still aside from dragging a chain around the bottom but that doesn't seem very realistic. I'll attach a picture, the bottom where it would be direct fired is concave. Cheers, Connor
