  2. Used / For Lease Forklifts?

    Hi All, We're starting up as a new distillery on Bainbridge Island and hoping to be producing by the end of this year. We are currently in the lengthy TI permit approval process, so we aren't holding our breath! While we're planning, I was curious if anyone had recommendations on cost effective options for leasing or buying used forklifts? Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated! Cheers, Matt

  6. Hello! A friend of mine who is in the industry has a personal connection that is looking to get into the industry, and is moving to Seattle soon. If anyone here would like to add an entry-level staff member, please consider looking at the resume linked below. This individual, Patrick McGrath, appears to be very passionate and probably can be scooped up inexpensively. Thanks https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1AlINP9_IL6dGRoUkFHZ3BDczA
  7. HI everyone, The rye is up and looking good. We will be harvesting 500 acres of Rye later this summer. We will be providing clean rye and rye malt right after harvest. We will have triticale also. We are adding a Munich style to our triticale malt options. Cheers James
  8. Sorry guys meant to intro myself last year. I am an active member of several guilds. I design and manufacture distillery equipment to best suit your needs. There are probably already a couple distilleries in here running batches on our equipment. We are not limited to equipment, I can help with production, setup, distillers enzymes etc. If there is anything I can help with, dont hesitate to give me a shout! Be safe out there!
  9. deerfish stills columns made in montana!

    Im not sure how this guy got in here. This company has no business building stills. They use rubber inner tubes for gaskets, downcomers that are incorrect, condensers that are too small, and most the stuff they sell is bought from other equipment suppliers. Steer clear, just a heads up! And just a note to admin. Ive been here a year and do not come here to sell equipment. This is just a friendly heads up to other distillers. This stuff is not cheap, and shouldnt have to be purchased twice!

    Happy to say we just took possession of 22 tons of rye seed for spring planting! We will have rye malt and grain soon, to go along with our 5th gen pale triticale malt and triticale Munich style malt.
  11. Small's Family Farm Intro

    Hi Seth, Thanks for joining the WDG as an associate member. We're starting to plan a few farm visits this summer and would love to come see your fields and mill. I'm very excited about the Salmon Safe certification--we just received our first batch of 16,000 lbs Salmon Safe malt from Palouse Pint. I'm looking forward to exploring more varieties and malts from small farms. So let's stay in touch! All the best,
  12. Your Enzymes and Blue Agave Source

    Welcome aboard, JB! I'm looking forward to trying your glucoamylase enzymes in a batch of beer destined to become grain neutral spirits. Thanks for getting on the phone with me and helping me figure out the best process for this. I hope to see you at one of our quarterly meetings some day. Cheers!

    I also recommend Terry Greenke, and my clients have given me great feedback re his services. His rates are rather reasonable. His website is: http://bizappraiser.net/. Niloufar (Nilly) Park npark@impactlawgroup.com
  14. Hello Everyone, My company is Breckenridge Technologies and we are new Associate Members of the Guild. We represent DuPont’s line of enzymes used in distilling and brewing.

Samples and technical support are readily available on both product lines. Please do not hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions. Cheers, JB Harrell Breckenridge Technologies jb@brecktech.com 925-984-6000
  15. Business Value Analysis

    Hey Hawk and Suzy, basically banks are looking for comps, and since the craft distillery biz model is somewhat new, they struggle with appraisals. The fact that some folks have been either bought or partially acquired, Big Gin and Westland, that would be a good contact to speak with. The basic rule of thumb for value when I am working with customers who are planning their end game is, 30% of gross sales plus equipment, after depreciation value, plus inventory at cost Cheers!!
  16. Business Value Analysis

    I used Terry Greenke of Performa Co when doing some appraisals for an investment at Copperworks. He came highly recommended, and was priced about 30% lower than other business appraisers I was directed to. Your price will certainly vary based on how much of a comparison to other businesses in your industry you wish to perform. It's a big task, so expect to pay between $2,000 to $10,000. It will also require a lot of work on your part to get the documents together that are necessary for a valid appraisal. Terry can be reached at: bizappraizer@hotmail.com. All the best with this.
  17. Business Value Analysis

    We are thinking we will need to buy our partner out soon, does anyone know how to evaluate the worth of a distillery and ciderworks? Or who can do this kind of thing?

  20. Square Processing

    I put the full price into square including the taxes, and then back out to calculate the liter and spirit fees using the formulas below. The nice thing is that you can account for customer discounts doing it this way. The easiest way to implement this is to keep the formulas in a spreadsheet into which you copy/paste the square data. Feel free to let me know if you need a hand setting it up. Retail Sales Liter - Bottle Size in Liters * 3.7708 Retail List Price - Price - Retail Liter Tax - ((Price - Retail Liter Tax)/1.205) Retail Sales Spirit - Price - Liter Tax - List Price On Prem Sales Liter - Bottle Size in Liters * 2.4408 On Prem Sales Spirit - Price - Retail Liter Tax - ((Price - Retail Liter Tax)/1.137) On Prem List Price - Price - Liter Tax - List Price
  21. Hello all, I just moved back to the US from 5 years in Seoul, South Korea studying traditional Korean alcohol, distilling, and teaching beer and cider brewing. I finished up my two certificates from Kyonggi University and the Rural Development Administration of Korea and made it back shortly after. I managed to bring back some undiluted bottles of soju, whiskey, and rum that I made while there. I'm looking for some feedback as I'm hunting for jobs and would love to bring some by for a sample. I'm most proud of the soju as it is made from the cheongju layer of makgeolli and is nothing like any commercial version I've had. I'm convinced the best stuff is always hidden in the house of the old Korean brewer. I'll do my best to stop by the meeting on Tuesday, but if I miss you there I'd love to come by and share samples with people. Hope to start meeting people soon, Andrew Maier
  22. MJW GRAIN INC

    Hello, Please take a look at our site. mjwgraininc.com I will be in the Seattle area starting tomorrow through Thursday. Please feel free to contact me. I would welcome member input about locally sourced rye. We are thinking about raising 500 acres spring rye this season. It would be available this summer. We are very proud to be members of the guild.
  23. Square Processing

    We do it the same way as Salish- fairly easy and helps with inventory numbers at the end of the day. On a side note- does anyone else's book-keeper hate the Square reports or have a better way of getting info out for moving to QB?
  24. Square Processing

    Set up the Liter taxes as separate items, with no taxes applied to them, and just add them to the cart on each transaction. Works for us just fine for us and I'm pretty sure it can be automatically added in on online transactions.

I am a fourth generation farmer here in the valley. We grow quite a few different varieties of wheat, barley, and legumes. Our Salmon Safe Certification is pending at the moment, we should be through all of the hoops for that in the next few weeks. Please check out our website www.smallsfamilyfarm.com, and look us up on Instagram and Facebook to catch more of our day to day goings on. We regularly deliver our flour products to Merlino Foods over in the Seattle area and are generally able to throw a pallet or two of sustainably grown Washington grain in to deliver to you.
