Hands on Distilling Class

Postby pintoshine » Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:00 pm

I will be hosting a hands on distilling class at Limestone Branch Distillery on June 30th, 2012. $250 for the class.
There will be room for 50 participants. Lunch will be served and possibly dinner.
The class will include lectures on mashing, fermentation, distilling, sensory perception. Comparison of different styles of bourbon and clear spirits.
There is a Hampton Inn less than a mile from the distillery. If you are driving in for the class there will be plenty of parking. There are lots of budget hotels in the area within an hour drive. Shuttle service can be arranged if there is enough demand. If flying into Louisville airport SDF, rentals are available at the airport also.
We will try to help with arrangements whenever possible.
If you come early I can arrange Distillery tours for Friday. Makers Mark and KBD(Willet) distillery are right up the road. Four Roses and Wild Turkey are just a bit further.

The night before the class we are tentatively considering a camp out at the distillery. There is a several acre lake on the property and plenty of tent space. It is bring your own tent. There is space for a bond fire and we might be able to arrange live music for Friday night. Saturday night is unplanned but I am sure we will figure out something for those staying over.

This is an entertainment event as well as a technical event. Any one is welcome to come Friday the 29th and hang out. Bring samples.

This is roughly the 10 hour driving radius of Louisville, KY

Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Can we come to the campout without taking the class? Sounds like a fun time!

Yes everyone is invited to the campout. :rkn: . Bring sample if you can get them into the country. I'll have my fiddle even though I have little skill at it.

If I win the Lottery between now and then, me and my bluegrass banjo will be there....
'cos IF I won the Lottery, SWMBO would have better things to do, spending the spondooliks!

Otherwise all enjoy, and have a toast to "absent friends".

Someone from the forums offered to cater the event and I lost the contact info for the person. If it is any of you please pm me.

Damn my bad luck! I was just there, and I may never get back.

wish I could come, loved my last trip to Louisville so much I might just have to come back for a visit.
Tried to send Kenfyoozed, but his schedule wouldn't allow.
if you're having it again next year, let me know and I'll make it a priority to be there.
See You Next Tuesday.
