We're a Canadian brewery looking to start off into spirits. We have the ability to make our own distiller's beer and distill off the mash. I'm trying to make a business case for the board.
We'd like to start with a system that gives lots of flexibility and is a low cost to entry. We were thinking in the 100-300 US gallon size, but after that we are kind of stumped as to what we really need versus want. As its essentially a proof of concept we'd like to keep the price tag down on the first system, hence the thought on an electric system.
What we are unsure on is the layout/components. How many plates would be needed?
It seems that a full vodka column is a substantial cost, yet the need to make vodka is a given.
We'd like to make small batch stuff from Gin to Whisk(e)y.
We've been scouring the Google, but this is rarely answered well other than "get more money".
Any help is appreciated,
