Re: Firecracker Bourbon

Great post MCH. What temp did you kiln the corn at? Are you counting on some enzymes from the corn malt, or leaving it to the malted wheat to do that bit fer ya?

Re: Mash abv?

I saw Jimbo’s post about new distillers wanting to push abv’s. He says a mash should produce 6-8%. Ive since modified my opinion on this. I do 10% mashes now for bourbons as Ive found with a clean yeast, and a slow (cool) ferment and healthy mash the result is the same as 6-8% mashes. I would recom...

Re: Jimbo's easy 1/2barrel Wheated Bourbon and Gumballhead

Hey guys, sounds good, congrats on your runs. I've been getting low on bourbon stocks until this new barrel is ready next year, so I started diluting my bourbon maybe 60/40 with the gumball (2013 batch) and its really nice. Nothing at all seems unbourbonlike about it. The other livers that help me f...

Re: Jimbo's Wheat Flour AG Experiment

Thanks Jimbo for the idea! I'm tempted to drink this white it's so good. The idea of all grain without the fuss of squeezing is great. The only downside is disposal of the slurry. I don't have access to a place to dump it outside and fear plumbing issues if I dump too much down the sewer. When Wind...

Had great luck with this using Malted Barley. Started the ferment at 1.060 sg, and was complete in 5 days. I just got some malted red wheat to try next and ran mostly the same process yesterday per the directions. All seemed to go fine, and looked right. But when I checked the sg after pitching the...

Plenty of reflux happening, and all plates fully loaded. Seemed like the quart jars were filling fast, so I timed one at 8.5 minutes, holy...

Hey! Watch who youre calling an OOOOOLD ass!

5g of cherry wash is about 12 trillion pits when I attack the cherry tree. So I wouldnt worry about 'over pitting' it, if that's your concern.

Re: Jimbo's Single Malt AG Recipe

RYE! Did up this recipe again today but with rye. Mashed up 50 lbs of Rye malt with 10 lbs of oats to add a little smoothness to the spice. OK its not a single malt any more with the oats in there but who's counting. This will go in one of my used 5g barrels for as long as I can keep my mitts off it.
