jheising Posted May 28, 2013 Share Posted May 28, 2013 Greetings, Hope all is well! We're a craft distillery in Washington State, and we've been using an in-house designed continuous still for 100% of our production for over two years now, and it has essentially cut our distillation labor costs to zero. At this point, we think we have enough real-world use and testing under our belts to consider productizing it. In a product form we should be able to deliver a system where the only labor involved is connecting a hose to a source of wash (be it anything from 5 gallon bucket to a tanker truck), selecting your desired proof output, and pressing START. The system should run 24x7 without any human intervention and can be monitored from your computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device. The other neat thing is that the system is entirely portable, so when it's productized, we should be able to come to your DSP facility and demonstrate it (with proper paperwork). Ours is currently setup as a technical still (with separate and simultaneous heads, hearts and tails draws), but based on community feedback, we might offer a stripping version of it first, which can be easily converted into a technical still at a later date with an attachment. Anyway, before we go too far into the productization phase I wondered if we might get some of the community here to help guide us by giving some of their feedback? We've setup a new website at: http://bunkerstills.com We also have a quick survey at https://docs.google....nX8l-U/viewform. Any feedback and ideas through the survey or on these forums would be extremely helpful and welcome! Also, if you find yourself in the greater Seattle, WA area and want to see and discuss the still in person, don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a time! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
