Premium Handcrafted Distillery
The Big Picture
The build-out of the Golden Moon Distillery in Golden included the installation of a 30-foot-tall grain silo, a hammer mill, a 500-gallon mash tun, and a 200-gallon lauter tun. In addition, two 500-gallon pot stripping stills, three 500-gallon fermenting tanks, two 240-gallon spirit stills, and six 50-gallon spirit stills, all with condensers and spirit columns, were installed. The project required extensive process piping, new civil tie-ins, a boiler, a chiller, a cooling tower, and an explosion-proof H-3-rated room. A barrel storage room and bottling equipment were also part of the project.
Ingenuity in Action
The cooling tower was specified to receive 460v in a 208v building. The project team worked with the electrical engineer and electrical subcontractor to install a step-up transformer, allowing the cooling tower to receive the proper amount of power.
