I went to bj's to get my groceries and I saw how cheap their bananas were. About 1/2 the price as the regular grocery store. $1.29lb. I also never just used bread yeast for a ferment before and they had 2lbs for less than 5 bucks! And a 25lb bag of sugar was only $10.50! I made out today!
So I took everything home gave the bananas almost a week to ripen real good. (Should have taken pics)
Here's what I did...
~5gallons of lees from a molasses rum wash(almost like hook)
~5 gallons piping hot dunder
25lbs white sugar
20 gallons water
~1/3lb of bread yeast
I threw the bananas in the lees and hit them with a mud mixer. It didn't do too well of a job so I stuck my arm in there and mashed them by hand. Poured in the sugar. Stirred it as best possible, there was still undisolved sugar. Poured in the dunder. Stirred the hell out of it. Then 20 gallons water. And I poured 1/3 lb of bread yeast on top at 85 degrees then stirred it in.
That's what it looked like right after. And of course I forgot to take a SG reading. Im always so anxious to get the yeast in there and see it active.
I know there other variations of this out there and people have made similar washes but I figured I would share my experiences with it.
