Hi Guys, I searched the forum for this information but didn't come accross anything relevent. I'm currently trying to secure a building permit on an agricultural building and permission to abstract water from a stream that runs through the property. I'm in a rural location and the local authority is favourable but quite conservative about a distillery in the area- they're not used to this kind of thing. Regarding process water I anticipate I'm going to be using 1250 gallons per week by the end of year 2. One manufacturer of equipment stated that I can expect to use 14529 gallons per week for cooling water producing at the level quoted above. What can I do to minimise cooling water abstraction and discharge from the stream. One method I have come accross is to re-use cooling water for mashing. Any other ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, Anyone have a lab report from corn mash stillage (or anykind of stillage)? I meet with my town planner at the end of the week and they want to know what, potentially, will be going down the drain to the towns WWTP. I explained that its basically stale non-alcoholic corn beer but they want a report. I plan on giving my stillage to local farmers but there will be still be occasions when I'm sure it will have to go down the drain. Also, what types of questions have others been asked by their town/city planners when meeting for the first time to pitch the idea of a micro-d in their town? Did you present your business plan? What type of info have you brought with you? Thanks
