Welcome. You’ve come to the right place. Start with the links at the bottom of this page. Look in the tried & true recipes for what you would like to make.

The struggle is real and this rabbit hole just got interesting.

Hi, a local distiller!

I’m looking to do a 150L barley mash this week, what yeast do you recommend? Bakers? Ale? Brewing? whiskey?

Thanks in advance 👍

Honestly that question has so many answers!! But for a reliable and clean ferment I'd use bakers yeast within it's tolerance - don't try to take the beer over 8% - 9%.

Thanks for the advice. Any particular bakers yeast or any off the shelf?

To be honest I haven't really done any comparisons. I don't doubt some are better then others - I get mine from Aldi!
