Re: Pugi's Rum or "Pugirum"

I am curious about the fertilizer... it doesnt seems safe to me, is the yeast eating it all by the time its done fermenting. Any residual fertilizer would affect taste and possibly even your health, with the variables in yeast fermentation with temp and what not. How many runs have you done with thi...

I would recommend you use mapp gas, its the yellow bottle if your gonna solder [its hotter, and takes less time and I think a better union] and when i am done I wipe the joint with a wet cloth.

I picked up some molasses a couple of days ago its "Seminole" the feed store didnt have a spec sheet on it. I couldnt get it to ferment. How much salt do you add to fight the unfermentable molasses?

By adding the salt , and bringing temp to 160F for two hours it should be good to go right.

I have to agree with intergaltic [partialy] For a fire to start you need 3 things; heat, oxygen, and fuel without anyone of the 3 no fire. a vapor has an ignition range depending on the consentration of that vapor. The denser the vaopr the less oxygen there will be. Lets say there is a puddle of gas...

New Guy Giving a nod

I have recently decided to try my hand and making my own rum (tired of the Captain taken all my loot). I was lucky enough to find all of you here, and I have been absorbing as much info as will fit into my little brain. I am not an engineer, nor a chemist so alot of information goes beyound my grasp...
