You know what I would like to see? A sub forum created, dedicated to all the cordials and liquors you can make from nuetrals. A place to find the grand marnier recipie, Kalua, fire piss, etc. A cordial section. Would be nice in one place.

I like the idea as I have made a lot of very good liqueurs and love my Grand Marnier Recipe.

Yeah about that. I'm a gunna need that recipe. I'm doing a cleaning run this weekend on my first ever neutral column. A new adventure for me. It's a whole new world, inspired by my stillin buddy panicky. I'll post a build thread later. But yeah. Would like to see all those pulled out of the flavoring section, as they are in the end a whole new likker. So when some one asks, what to do with neutral, we can say, go here and start making all the other liqours you need for your bar... :thumbup:

As I told Jimbo, Grande Marnier is expensive to buy commercially. I did a side by side taste test and could not tell the difference. Got to make some more soon. If you guys like it we might need to put it in the Tried & True as I don't think we have the recipe anywhere but on my post.
Here it is:

I will tell you this. I just started a 50 gallon oat UJSSM tonight. I plan on stripping and spiriting this next weekend, as my first neutral. If my new column performs, I'll make this first, as I love Grand Marnier, but you're right. Expensive and easier to get plain tripple sec for the pina coladas.

Thanks Bushman! Looks like an excellent recipe, definitely will be crankin one through and suggesting for Tried and True if she's good, which I have no doubt of.

Check out zesters so you dont have to plane the pith out of the oranges. They cut strips of zest, so waste a little zest on the rind, but oranges are cheaper than dickin around with gettin rid of pith?

Thanks for pointing us to your recipe. Cheers!

brye.jpg


My 1 week old bourbon-rye (I called it brye). Having it with some coke. It's honestly the best batch of whiskey that I've ever made. It think mostly because it's my first with 100% all grains mashed, I did conservative cuts, and using these oak cubes for the first time really make me wish I discovered them 10 years ago.

Here's my combined mash bill (roughly) from the 3 washes:

30 lbs corn
12 lbs malted barley
25 lbs malted rye
10 lbs white sugar
30 gallons water
Also added around 10 gallons in backset in total to each of wash #2 and #3.

not sure on how far these cheap supermarkets have gone but i am really into captain morgans spiced rum i went on a hunt for a cheaper option as its £17-£22 here in england so i went to aldi and brought theirs its nice very vanilla/caramel drinkable but only a bottle much more it gets too sweet and sickly bonus is no hang over the next day and i dont turn nasty on it :ebiggrin:
the next i tried was a bottle of spiced rum from lidl its called capain cooks and WOW this is pretty close to the captain morgans i took a bottle to my freinds wedding because i was the best man and drank half of it before my speech at 1pm lol drank the rest and had the sober mrs go get me another bottle for the evening lol this stuff is really really nice you get a nice happy buzz from it and so far ive not woken up with a hangover from it 2 bottles at £9.99 each and both brands are a clean cut rum that doesnt give you the rough feeling the day after drunk after 2 bottles yes hang over no lol
for me this is the aim i wish to reproduce time and time again maybe not the flavour but the effects.
vodka i turn nasty and unfortunately whiskey i turn nasty too i will still produce them and drink them but maybe by myself in a tent alone somewhere far far away from people. :angel:
some say cheap shelf brands are junk but for me these are 2 of the cheapest brands but very very good quality i think aldi had a whiskey brand they brought a 12 year old scotch or maybe 18yr that use to sell for about £80 a bottle but theyre selling it at i think £18.99 :D happy days

Doing a mashing at the moment. I like to sip on some wine during a mash. I try to lay off the hard stuff while mashing for obvious reasons.

Here in Canada all alcohol is ridiculously expensive but you're allowed to make your own wine or beer. We have stores that you can show up, pitch the yeast for your wine, leave, then come back in 6 weeks and bottle your wine. They do all the thankless work of racking and filtering. We have the same type store for beer as well. I make a batch of 28 bottles every few months for just over $3/bottle. Here at the liquor store a $10 bottle is consider "cheap wine".
