Re: Pugi's Rum or "Pugirum"

Question about gravity on this recipe for those who have done it... I screwed up a bit because I used a molasses with a much higher sugar content than I imagine feed molasses would have. I also used inverted white sugar instead of brown, and before a day or two it didn't occur to me that I should ha...

Re: Terrible rum attempt - save for neutral or discard?

Heh, no I didn't think it was a shot at my still, I figured you're not familiar with the unit. I just don't think it's quite proper myself after going over all the still design info here.

Terrible rum attempt - save for neutral or discard?

Hi all--new to posting on this forum, but been reading it since last summer or so. Been poring over the forum, but I can't tell if it's worth it to save a terrible smelling distillate or not, assuming I'm not going to use carbon.
