Nice recipe Bentstick, my experience is these multi grains are always delicious. Wheat Oats and Rye giving you Sweet, smooth and spicy/aroma, in that order ;)

Cheers

haha, thats how I felt about an all oats one I did. You might have been overly conservative on the cuts? Do you still have your cuts jars? You could experiment with a touch of late heads to get some more fruit/spice and spank in there.

Ive done close to this recipe and am now waiting on it to air out to temper. I used 15 lbs malt and 10 unmalted in wheat and same in rye. Used rolled oats and Nottingham ale yeast.So close but not exact.Just strained the mash didn't press it getting a usable wash of 27 gallons. let settle real well and kept 25 gallons from that. Stripped almost 4 gallons outta 13 gallons .Put 3 gallons mash/wash in thumper and the stripped with what was left and ran that.Started out at 150 proof and at qt jar 11 had dropped to 75 proof where I quit. Ran out another 3 qts to mix with 2 gallons spent wash to put in thumper for oats sugar head wash.Will air out for bit then taste and blend and proof .

Proofed to 95 abv or so .Tossed a little more on heads then I figured on but also went further into tails .However all who tasted have gave it a good nod . Will pass it around at next meet to see what my peers think .

wouldn't mind a comparison on the 3 of them myself, but I have to make due with putting my own mash on. Will have to put it in the backlog of mashes to do :)

As a novice I am wondering if this system by Tater is just pure gold dust. If my analysis of this is correct, is it a case of Tater having 25 gallons wort
He then took 13 gallons of wort and stripped it (resulted in 4 gallons strip)
Then he took 3 gallons of wort and add this to the 4 gallons strip and put this into his thumper.
He then put the remaining wort into pot and ran that with the thumper.

If the latter is correct could one further distill this system down to
Strip 50% wort, and add this strip to 10 to 15% of more wort and put all into thumper
Put remaining wort in pot and run it with the thumper. Hey presto - finished product ?

To those experienced this might seem to be obvious, but to a novice like me it seems to be a great way of going from wort to strip to a full spirit run with just one batch of wort.

Please correct me if my analysis is incorrect, and if there are better ways of handling one batch of wort please let us novices know.
Thanks again. Jim

Opened my fermenter today and this is what I saw. I wonder how it will change the taste...

its a lactic infection, it will change it from a sweet mash to sour mash which some guys really like and others not so much. You will probably want to run that as soon as fermenting is done.
