Hey everybody, Mike Here. I was in Branson Mo. on some business this weekend and stopped by Copper Run Distillery. They owner Jim Blansit was great. He and I discussed ideas on kettles and home distilling techniques for quite some time. I think we came up with a plan for a new kettle. We will have to wait and see how the ideas work out. I was in the area talking to Custom-Metal Craft about making some 250 – 500 kettles for us with a steam jacket and ASME certified for low pressure steam. We want quality kettles made in the USA and I think were getting close to working this out.
While touring their plant the plant manager was telling me about a small Distiller that is already doing the same thing I was talking to him about.It was Copper Run Distillery. We stopped by and when I introduced myself Jim and I hit it off very fast. He has a world of knowledge about distilling and Mashing grain. He is doing a full flavored Corn liquor that is great.
