We plan to use a second brand to do the second distillation but are intending to use SD for mashing and stripping. Does anyone have experience with larger bain marie versions of the SD stills set up in Bain Marie? We are looking at both bain marie and steam heat but so far the cost of a steam boiler plus installation is pretty high.
Here is essentially the specs we are considering:
2000L Mash Tun - Bain Marie
2000L Stripping Still - Bain Marie
Heavy grain in fermenting and grain in stripping. High rye content.
Does anyone have experience with these larger bain marie versions?
If so, what do you use for the HEX? Glycol? Oil?
What can I expect in terms of heat up time for both?
