Re: Oat,Wheat,Rye Whiskey/whisky

I have a 12 gallon batch of this fermenting right now. I've never done a sugar head(adding sugar to the spent grains for a second ferment). Has anyone done a sugar head with this recipe? Is it worth it? I worry that it won't pick up much grain flavor from all the second run light flavored oats and ...

Re: Oat,Wheat,Rye Whiskey/whisky

Just now poured out some barreled 120 proof original recipe. Deep, rich flavor. I went back to my notes from the run and it bring back memories of breakfast cereals and being a kid...with a punch. The 26 months in a 10L barrel have been kind and the result is a dark amber product that is tasty. A g...

It's a whisky recipe why turn it into a neutral. Why not use wheat alone. This was designed and trailed to be a white whisky,Neutral/Vodka would benefit much better taste wise(or void of) from just Wheat as AC pointed out,but as the hobby goes its your game do as ya see fit and report back.

You must have a pretty small still, with 1 L of wash and 400 ml of product. Don't knock a nubee with a small still...I strongly advise starting small just to get the hang of it..AND...small mistakes run a small cost and a far better chance of keeping everything under control.

Not a Physicist, but the only"pressure" or resistance you should have from steaming is that put on the opening/exist size of steam wand/tube due to the amount of water or grains setting above the wand/tube which is negotiable compare to what is being generated in the steam generator. yea-nay? :wtf: ...
