Re: Pugi's Rum or "Pugirum"

Sounds great and I'm planning a batch or 2.
I can't get molassas here but I have taken 3 gal of raw juice of sugar cane and simmered it down to 2 galons. If I went further I guess I would have molasses.
Hard to get 20-0-0 fert here also. will tomato paste work as well?

Re: glossary

OK WIKI has backset in the glossary. Backset is "left over liquid after a distilling run used to add the the next mash"
backset = backwash right?

Re: reflux to pot still

I have been basiclly making vodka in the reflux still. I want more flavor. I am also, believe it or not, in an area where cracked corn is almost impossible to find and whole kernel corn is not easy.

reflux to pot still

Hi, I have a reflux still but want to use it as a pot still as I have access to pure sugar cane and want to make rum. If I remove all of the copper packing, will it work as a pot still?
