Your Responsibility When Using ABS Alcohol Blending Software Version 3.3


This program is not a substitute for a sound and through understanding of the laws and regulations governing distilled spirits plants and the processes of blending and rectifying alcohol.  Licensor has done his best to give you useful information about the properties of alcohol being processed based on table lookups of those properties and the execution of approved algorithms of blending. The user must ensure that the procedures they wish to carry out are ones intended, that accurate inputs are provided, and that the results are checked by an independent source prior to execution.  


In addition, some worksheets particularly relating to taxation, accounting, monthly reports, bottling logs, and bottling run reconciliation are provided in an unlocked state to allow the user to modify them at will as to inputs and formulas.  Any changes to those sheets are entirely the user’s responsibility


Some worksheets are public domain, specifically the TTB worksheet on flavor additions.  Licensor is simply including this sheet in an un altered state with full credit to the TTB authors but licensor can not make any further warranty to the user.


This program should be considered as a back up to the present procedures of your distilled spirits plant.  You should consider it as a trial program until you as the user are absolutely sure that the algorithm in question is reliable for your purposes.  Even then you must continue to use the gauging manual and other alternative procedures to verify that the program delivers consistent results for your particular application.


Blending alcohol is an exacting and non-forgiving art.  The user is required to maintain a current understanding of the regulations, procedures, and requirements for operating a distilled spirits plant and be aware of changes in tax rates and other regulation changes that may affect features of the program.
