  3. Fermentation space in your vessel

    Hi, Fermenters generally have 20% freeboard, who's the term describing the headspace above the liquid. It's important to have enough freeboard to prevent blowout from losing too much volume.
  4. Hi guys, Can anybody tell me a good ballpark percentage for the amount of space you should provide for fermentation in a fermentation vessel? I currently use 5 gallon glass carboys and my mash usually takes from half to three-fourths of the volume. A) Is excess space in a fermentation vessel detrimental to the mash in any way, 2) if so, what proportion of space to mash is recommended to avoid any potential detrimental effects? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks! -j

  9. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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!
  17. MJW GRAIN INC

    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.

  22. 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!!
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
