Re: Ted's Fast Fermenting Vodka

Yes temperature and the yeast makes a difference. I tend to use Angel bakers as my standard and it likes temps of 25c up to 28c for the fastest ferment. Right now in a colder (ambient 18c to 20c) room it takes a few days more.

Re: Beware of black DAP

There are several grades available . Its main use is as an agricultural fertilizer. For food grade as used in our world and winemaking it is refined to be a white crystal . Expect to pay more

Re: Theft of low wines

One of my “students” had exactly this happen last week. He had a silicon hose running from the still outlet into the collection jar and when he switched off the hose end was down inside the distillate. 10 minutes later he came back to see the last of the distillate being sucked back into the still.

If the packaging doesn't say "Starter of liquor-making", it's a different Angel product.

Re: Prenatal pill for yeast nutrient??

That will give you plenty of vitamins etc but you still need a nitrogen source.
Boiled yeast, Dap, or even a high nitrogen fertilizer. The sodium is not ideal. If you have any Epsom salts a pinch will give you magnesium

along with a 25kg bag of long grain rice Any reason you went with long grain vs short which is usually much better for making alcohol?
