Bcproduct Posted November 30, 2013 Share Posted November 30, 2013 Trying to start on a budget.... I can see the value in the stills and tanks professionally made, but, as a new startup, with a new brand, I want to start with as little money as possible, once I have permits, licenses and a product with positive momentum, I can justify higher equipment costs. To that, I am thinking of using some 3 inch copper packed columns and 55 gallon drums. The drums would be used for the mash tun, HLT, and boiler for the still. It would be all electric. I want to make a Nuetral and a flavoured product. I would use the packed column for the nuetral and either remove the packing or build a 3 or 4 inch pot still head for the flavoured product. I am planning to insulate the barrells for efficiency. I like this setup because the cost is low, and it can be expanded modularly as required... Or at least I think it can? My question is, what sort of negatives will come with a setup like this? Can anyone foresee an issue that I have not thought about? Thank you in advance and by the way, is is a great forum, I have learned a lot. Thank you to all who take the time to contribute. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
