Ethanol extract question(to go Cup 15 or just a manual extractor)

Lol Is that your walk in freezer @cyclopath?

I wish!

Last guys did get me a walk-in freezer.
used.
came with a walk in 10C too.

they even assembled the thing.
however, the refrigeration unit was declared dead by their AC guy.
they used it as a product vault for a while.

it would easily have paid for the new compressor by doubling my throughput without additional investment in less than a week (less than a day by my math!!). assuming I invested another days (the rest of a day’s) output into a still and more kegs, I’m pretty sure I could have hit 10x throughput in a month or two of optimization.

I heard they’re still planning to spin it up when they can.
I don’t see it being quite as useful with the CUP they purchased… unless they hire the right wizard :mage:

Edit: redid the math. I could not have achieved 10x back then. I had not read this thread…and would have been limited by solvent recovery to about 4x with two 20gal stills. If I recall correctly I had asked for six of them.

Just gonna drop this thread here. I’m not personally in the market for this kind of production yet, but a grower we’re working with has already invested half a million in getting 40 acres ready for hemp for the 2019 season. So if all goes well with the small scale plans, we’re going to have to be ready to scale up dramatically by October. I was thinking an expensive FFE might have been the only option until I saw this bad boy and started asking questions.

Edit: Might as well drop this here as well.

Im going with a Cup 15… yeah buddy…

have you checked out Acespinner.com? (shameless plug)

Looks right purdy it does! :grin:

Even this one is small. We are getting a 300L system with FFE as our starter system with plans to jump to a 3000L as soon as possible. Private message me if you’d like to talk about maybe a beneficial relationship.

You’ll outgrow it in a week and need to run 24/7 to make decent money. We are doing a 300L for $30k more.

Do you have a 110v version?
