Re: RumBrewer's blurtings!

Some reason I keep waking up with that song I will wait by mumford and sons.. It's the banjo and stuffed columns- thinking up new designs.. Then right before I wake up I'm always in prison and stuffed columns takes on a new meaning.. Maybe it's my dad telling me I need to go back to what I know.. I ...

Re: Books about setting up a microdistillery?

The thing with small distilleries.. noticed anyway, it's hard to make it, least that's the way it is here.. There was one that opened up around 4 hours north of where I live and they had to buy all the equipment first, then it was inspected and finally they had a permit to make and sell their stuff....

Re: First time stillin

Yeah it's kind of a pain to make baijiu.. Like sake in a way, aiming for around 130 proof- You make the koji first which is a mold, grow it on short grain rice and stop it before it flowers.. Then mix it with soaked/steamed rice and let it sit.. The koji breaks down the new rice into sugar the yeast...

Re: Nothin but Taste

It's actually a work sink.. Around 20 gallons I'm guessing with a condensate pump Yeah the water will get pretty hot without some kind of active cooling running.. When running low wines through the fractionating still you almost need nothing to cool it down and can slow the flow down quite a bit (ke...

You can buy Baijiu (40-50% sorghum alcohol) here for almost cheaper than water - 5 liters is 5 pounds! Only problem is that it is foul undrinkable stuff that sends you loopy. I'm making a batch from scratch here.. Around 130 proof is what shooting for but I need a bulk supply of koji, having troubl...

Re: mixing drink%

Yeah.. 65ml of bourbon would be 7.6% if added to 250ml coke

Get the amount in ml of alcohol: 65 * 0.37 = 24.05 ml
Total (All) mixed: 250 + 65 = 315 ml

Get the percentage: 24.05 / 315 = 7.6 %
