Designing New Technologies at iStill HQ!

We are working on some great new technologies, here at iStill HQ! Of course, all innovations are aimed at making distilling easier. I can’t yet reveal what they are, since we are still doing finetuning on ‘m, but all the info will be shared in the coming three weeks. On this very iStill Blog, so stay tuned!

Visiting Den Hool Whisky!

Today I visited Gert and Remco from Den Hool Whisky. They make whisky, from grain to glass. The barley is grown on their own farm. They malt the barley in house. They use a fully specced iStill 500 to mash and distill their whisky and produce, in the winter months, around a barrel per week.

Do you want to learn more about them? Please read:

How to mash 1000 pounds of grain in the iStill 2000!

Hi Odin,

Received and installed the indirect heaters, thanks. They’re a huge improvement. I know you’ve started selling the iStill Masher, but we’ve had pretty good success with our iStill 2000 and our “iHopper”. I’ve attached a video.  

With this system, we have a hopper, a pneumatic vibrator on the frame for grain flow and a small grist hydrator at the bottom of the hopper as the grain goes in.  We can get 1,000 pounds of grain in our 2000 with this system in under 30 minutes with little to no clumping.  (We put the mirror on the ceiling to monitor the grain as it goes in).  Just thought I would pass this along for anyone struggling with getting 1000+ pounds into their iStill.
