3-Oaks Distillery Posted April 24, 2018 Share Posted April 24, 2018 I have a small problem and hopefully someone can assist. I have a small distillery (2500 bottles per year.) I use a heat exchanger so cannot have solids in my system for the still. I am now emptying mash tank into a 50-gallon cart with a strainer in it and scooping out solids into a wagon for disposal. I'm getting up in age and want to figure out a different system. I'm thinking maybe an auger with a gate on the output end that would compress the mash and the liquid would run back down the auger and out the bottom into a container. Then I could open the gate and dump out the solids. Can't spend over 2k as it just wouldn't be financially feasible. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it. The used equipment that is on the market that does this starts around 4k so not viable. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
