  1. Hydrometer selection quick reference chart.

    Very cool! Thank you!
  2. A little about Artisan Craft Distilling Insitute

    I can wholeheartedly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in getting involved in the distilled spirits industry (or requiring a refresher). Allan and his team have done an amazing job of jumpstarting an entire generation of craft distillers throughout the United States, and in particular Washington State. You will not be disappointed with the quality and information of this week-long workshop.
  3. Possible Tacoma Distillery Location Offered

    Yes, Tacoma is an undiscovered gem that I have been attempting to unearth for the past 8 years. The Stadium District is definitely a very cool area in the City of Destiny.
  4. Raphaël Germain-Robin seeking employment

    Help me raise money to open a whiskey and brandy house in Tacoma and we will distill together!

  6. Square

    Go to https://squareup.com/login Click Create Tax Create your tax calculation for your bottle cost with an additional tax calculation for the Liter cost (example: If you spirit is $20 for 750mL you would add the 20.5% (or is it 17%?) + $3.7708 per Liter ($2.83 for 750ml) for the Liter tax for a total of $26.93. Square should show you these two breakout taxes). Enable Tax on Save
  7. "It’s a little-known fact, but you don’t actually need a still to call yourself a distiller. The vodka makers I visited had adopted a simple and surprisingly common business model: buy a large quantity of potable alcohol from an industrial supplier (one vendor of neutral spirits offers it “in drum, truckload and railcar quantities”), run it through a tall charcoal filter to remove any trace impurities, cut it with water, decant it into bottles, and then slap on a label touting it as a local craft product worthy of its premium price." http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/06/distilling-deceit/309308/
