Yup, sure thing.
I used good old bakers that I always use in everything. I have some 1118 sitting in the fridge, but I wanted to ferment fast. Been a little behind this year since I just finished remodeling my bathroom
. So, good old traditional bakers
As far as temp, I set my water bath at 90, but the damn system is so freakin efficient, it comes in just under 92. With peak ferment, the wash is sitting at 93. I'm sure it will come down a little in the next couple days, as it is running like a freight train. It is quite a happy little ferment. I have fermented bakers very successfully even up to 105, with no off flavors. Between 85 and 95 has been my experience of happy bakers
So, anyways, the og was 1.069 or so, let's call it 1.07. I want to run this on Wednesday, but I won't rush it. This was a proof of concept on the Fermax, and my new winter set up. So far, the dam thing is violent as hell
If everything goes well from bucket to glass, I will use this as my annual vodka wash. I have changed my distilling habits around. I used to run rum and sugar washes in the summer, when it was naturally hot, and fight the whiskey in the winter. But finding a place to inconspicuously dump grains in the snow is a pain in the ass. So now that I have a super efficient system to ferment up to 120 in freezing weather, why not sugar (and rum) all winter, and grains in the summer?
Anyways, I'm obviously winded this morning, but that is why I wanted a solid free wash, instead of my usual uj
. Thanks again, I'll let you know how it turns out
