Vermont Smooth Posted February 4, 2011 Share Posted February 4, 2011 Our Distillery is under construction and we have come to cooling. We will have a 500 gal pot still and a 250 gal rectifying still, not to mention fermentation vats and a mash cooker. We think we will have a supply tank for chilled water, probably in the ground, and a receiving tank in house that we can hold to draw heat from in between runs before cooling and sending back to the supply tank. We have an engineer working with us to figure the most efficient cooler to use, but he has not worked on a distillery before. How do those of you with comparable production size deal with cooling. If you use a chiller, how big. I am very interested in innovations, but we also want what will work when my hair brain ideas don't! The pipe in the river is on hold for now. Thanks for your input.
