Are you interested in opening or working in a Micro Distillery?  
 
We are partnering with Double V Distilling in Battle Ground (1315 SE Grace Ave) to provide this class.   The first day will be in our Theatre room, which is perfect for a show and tell academic setting.  Day 2 will be at Double V Distilling.
 
Day one starts at 12:00 pm and goes till approximately 4 pm. 
Day two starts at 12:00 pm and goes to approximately 3 pm.
 
This class is designed to give you the basic information of distillery operation, from the small 6 gallon test batch, to a full multi hundred gallon batch.

This is a 2 day class, with the 1st day at Bader Beer & Wine Supply being the “Academic theory” day.  Topics discussed will be types of washes and how they work, yeast and grain use, Types of Condensers and their use, distilling techniques, how to make cuts, filtering, oak aging for brown distillate, and bottling.  Also Double V will discuss the basic legal steps to opening a licensed Distillery.   

Day #2 is at Double V Distilling in Battle Ground.  Double V will be running their commercial unit and explain how it works.  We will also run a small 5 gallon batch at Double V, allowing the students to see a run from the heads to the tails.  Cuts will be taken in the run for you to compare the first runnings to the last runnigs.   We will also filter some distillate, so you can smell and taste the difference.  A small amount of bottles will be filled at Double V to show the bottling procedure.

Class minimum: 8 students, Class Maximum 12 students.  Class is held at Bader Beer & Wine Supply, 711 Grand Blvd, Vancouver, WA 98661
