      Does anyone know if there are distillery construction guidelines from the
      FDA or other regulatory group in the US or is this simply up to the
      distillery to assure beverage quality? Perhaps the guidelines are from each
      individual state. Surely there are standard guidelines in Europe

       

      Basically the same as for food manufacturing

      Concrete floor

      Stainless steel

      Food grade hoses and handling equipment

       

      But with large scale fermenting and distilling equipment it easier and cheaper to buy it then make it

      Especially if you can get it used and that does happen as some micro brewery’s go out of business and other replace smaller equipment to larger

      And some like rolling rock who sold their old plant to move to a new one

       

      For distilling a bit more lax but till holds to very min food grade laws but adds oak barrel  and such

       

      For both you need a state and ATF federal license and they be very watchful on grain and output as when st elsewhere brewery had a bad batch, He had to have a state ATF agent there to watch him dump the brewing tank down the drain
