Order Distillery Operations Software

Distillery Operations Software is a suite of 80+ spreadsheets which is the companion software to the book; Distillery Operations: How to Run a Small Distillery, and contains the supporting operable calculations that comprise the book. These calculations primarily relate to the fermentation and engineering side of operating a distillery.


The software is fully functional and users can modify the input values for each worksheet to meet their own particular needs and print out the results. It comes with a money back guarantee if it is not suitable to the purchaser's needs.

The program was built in Excel and is compiled as an executable file using the DonEx compiler which creates and application shell that looks like Excel but does not require that Microsoft Excel itself be installed on the machine. See: https://doneex.com/


Note to purchasers: ABS 3.4 is compiled only for Microsoft Windows systems. It will not run on any other operating system (such as Mac OS X), even if you have Excel installed. The author regrets any inconvenience.


Purchasers will receive an email confirmation on the same business day as the purchase.

Because of restrictions on emailing executable files which is making it very difficult if not impossible to deliver the program via email; the program will be delivered via the Dropbox cloud service, if the purchaser has that ability, or as a CD via US Mail to the address associated with the purchase.
