Re: Corona virus etc. and handwash.

Hey thecroweater & cranky... yeh it's getting bad here too, the missus had to go to 6 different shops just to get 12kg of sugar because they have a 2kg limit. I've also noticed that my broadband speed has just about halved which takes me back down to 15Mbit/sec... thankfully my kids are now done wit...

You could do a small 5 litre batch ferment, and run it through your T500, still spirits say you could run 5 litres minimum distillate and stop producing when you have collected 3 litres :think: I would definately label it rum.

That's not such a bad idea :thumbup:

I have 'Soxhlet' infused dried mango into a flask of the rum, the flavours go very well together.
That sounds delish :thumbup:

Re: How to classify sugar wash spirits?

Yes it came out a medium flavoured rum, slightly lighter than a molasses and raw sugar rum Cheers mate I might give it a run some time. The last molasses wash I did I let sit for 18mths and when I tried it the taste was halfway between a rum & a whiskey... hence I called it Rumskey. Damn I wish I c...

Re: White Sugar Nutrients Informantion

I've been making TPW's & Weetbix washes for about 5yrs now with no failures. Admittedly I have a lot of work to do in speeding up the fermentation process but I'm patient and it hasn't proved a problem to me so far.

If you take the inland route to Melbourne some time you will go past my place not far into Victoria.
