StonesRyan Posted March 5, 2014 Share Posted March 5, 2014 Can anyone provide any insight on an appropriate (and approximate) water tap size for an operation with a 150 gallon still? I'm a one-man operation so I'll be contracting the wash through a local brewer and transporting to my facility to ferment until I can afford/ justify hiring someone and investing in the mashing equipment, so I'll really only be using water for proofing and cleaning until then. After a year and a half of pressuring the city to revise ordinances to allow distilleries they finally gave in and will allow me not only in industrially zoned areas but also retail commercial. This is great except that almost all of the commercial spaces only have a 3/4" water tap and the filing cost for a new one is nearly $20,000 - that's before ground is even broken. So my question is whether or not a 3/4" tap will suffice for my smaller operation? Is there anyone out there who's been down this road already?
