About Erasmus Distillery

About Me:
I am a small hobby distiller, that will like to become small start-up Distillery. With your help and support I do believe that this will be possible.
The seed for this idea was born the day I bought my first craft beer brewing kit which was more than 7 year ago.
With the support of my friends and family we began brewing beers nonstop. Needles to say we ended with multiple fermenters, equipment etc.
Fast-forward 7 years and now I am sitting here is SA, brewed countless of beers, build a couple of stills, and distilled countless of spirits and my passion for this craft has grown exponentially.

My Progress:
During my time distilling, I have been working on recipes, getting feedback from friends and trying to hone in on what I am passionate about.
I have learned to build my own columns, gin baskets, condensers and bubble plates. Why is this impressive you might ask? Well, my current profession is accountant. Yes, I am a “Pen Pusher”.
In 2020 I enrolled at Distillique and completed their Distilling Courses. The C1-Introduction to Distilling and more importantly the C10 – Master Workshop Comprehensive Distilling Course.
Currently I am enrolled for the B1-Craft Distillery Business Planning Workshop.
I mention this to show you that I am dedicated and eager to start-up a distillery.

Goals:
The following goals that I have set out is for transparency. I do not expect to achieve al these goals through friend’s family and patrons. These are the goals that I need to active for me to get my distillery started.
I do hope that this platform will help me achieve most of these goals!!
So, when I announce that I achieved a certain goal, you will know where in this process I am. This way you can be part in this extremely demanding and challenging journey.

Goal 1: $3,540.59
This will help me to obtain the needed capital equipment to so that I can start with upscaled product development. This will include 150L mashing tun, pumps, Stainless Steel Drums, 200L plastic fermentation vessels and other small equipment.
Goal 2: $4,233.70
This will help to obtain bottling equipment. This will include an Enolmatic Standard Bottle Filler with filters and pipes, Bottle Labeler and a PVC Capsule Heat Gun.
Goal 3: $14,472.78
This is quite a steep goal. One that I will be trying to accomplish by myself. I added it for transparency regarding what I need to achieved. This includes rent for 12 months as well as the registration fees.
Goal 4: $4,481.74
This will include a 190L Pot Belly Electrical Boiler, additional Fermentation Vessels with some hoses and fittings.
Goal 5: $3,518.81
This goal will help me to get alt the small “nitty gritty “things that I might not yet have.
Things like Additional Pumps, a pressure washer, refractometers, waste and raw material bins, malt mill, buckets, etc.
Goal 6: $2,894.56
This goal will be for the RO Filter System and flow bins.

So, come and join me, follow the journey that we will embark on. Maybe we will learn something together, and when the distillery is standing, you can visit us and tell your friend you were part of our journey!!! And the Wall of Appreciation will back your story!!!!
