Anyone up for a Swap Meet?

Postby BoomTown » Mon Jun 12, 2017 9:18 am

Hi Folks,

As many of you know, we had to close our distillery last year. We find ourselves with a pretty healthy number of items that would be useful to home distillery as well as craft distillers, and no way to use it.

I'm thinking I might host a Swap Meet and invite all me Distilling friend around the area?

Anyone interested?

Boom

I'm in.

You can also call Kim (guy) at McLaughlin's, he might be able to use some stuff at the distillery. He has a similar setup to what you had.

Thanks, hope you're feeling better and the family is doing well.

This is an example of the kinds of things I'd like to bring to a swap meet this fall, if anyone is interested. We used this as a boiler and the valving includes a high pressure blow-off, and suck-back valve. All the joints were made with silver soldier and copper or bronze fittings. The valve tree mounts to the keg with a standard 2" tri-clamp.

Am looking to trade it or sell it.
