We're working to develop a "bolt-on" kit for still automation.
The objectives of the automation: To compile distilling protocols for different fruit mashes to automate tail-cuts and control the reflux, %abv, boiling rate, coolant control, tail-cutting etc. It will allow the distiller to focus on other issues instead of spending time on the distilling process to produce really good stuff, maintaining quality and consistency.
Off-course, once a particular mash's "ideal" distilling protocol is determined, it would be great to have a central depository from where to pull and share these protocols in a sort of "open-source" type of way - making for better product by more people...and pushing the limits beyond those achievable by big distilleries.
Any suggestions, or requirements for such a "bolt-on" still automation "package"?...or do you think it will not work?
Spirited people...loves distilling.
