Yes Ugly, you will. Or at least feel like you can.
This is recipe is dead simple.
This recipe ferments with a freakishly aggressive display of,,,,,activity.
This recipe does carry over a delightful wheaty aroma.
During this Bran cereal experiment I did not note at any time a "mucky" quality.
I ran both runs low and slow.
On my first run, I ran a stip run and pulled a 16 oz center cut out to compare to my forthcomming spirit run (because tater and a few others like to do single runs). The remainder I ran well into the tails. I wanted to compare the two after Rad had suggested that he was typically enjoying these cereal/ crumb washes with only one run. He was right. Once is very good ( I am sipping a sample of the center cut with white cranberry now).
On the spirit run I added a 16 oz quantity (per 6 quart batch) of wash to insure that I would carry over the nice aromatic quality.
I prefer the spirit run ( assuming I have limitations with running a small scale set up).
My set up is small so i make my cuts more pre-determined as everything on the run happens kinda fast. For this experiment I was looking to get the heart of the heart so to speak. I wanted to compare center to center ( to a degree).
Having said that, The tail end of the hearts and early tails smells very nice. Some of the more experienced gents can certainly render a more sophisticated drink by incorporating previous generations, oaking and generally following their usual techniques for their quality drinks.
I would say that this is a recipe that any body should have and use as it is cheap, easy and renders (I suspect) a dependable outcome. I am doing this again.
At the very least, this is worth a go. Do it Ugly.
Gotta go. I'm scheduled to shit through the eye of a needle in ten minutes and I gotta go warm up.
Trample the injured and hurdle the dead.
