Re: Jokes

A teacher asked her third grade class to name things that ended with the suffix "tor" that ate things. The first little boy said, "Alligator." "Very good James, that's a big word." The second boy said, "Predator.." "Yes, that's another big word Alan. Very well done." Little Johnny says, "Vibrator." ...

6 Row Joe, didn't adding that much backset stall your wash? If so did you add some calcium to help it out?

Gin Basket

I've been reading up on different methods and would like some input. I'm a pagan, I love the flavor juniper, smoking for 50+ years has limited my ability to enjoy the "floral notes' of other botanical's so I just use juniper with some coriander. I macerated my last (and 1st) batch and it came out "o...

Re: Gin Basket

I couldn't find any reference to a nylon stocking in the "what not to use" section. I tried a tea basket, but didn't get enough infusion, plus I wanted to keep the dust sizes particles out of the liquid. I also tried directly into the thumper liquid, but again too little flavor. I think I'll order a...

Re: Do you ripitch after a stalled ferment

I just had that happen to me. I added cc and re-pitched yeast. Seemed to me that if the wash ph was that far off, the yeast I started before mixing, would have been killed cause it because it was vulnerable....I also stirred the hell out of it.

Re: Hooray for Calcium Carbonate

Well, besides some failures early on in my distilling, I've never had a ph problem (4 years now). I finally had one by adding backset to left over wash along with corn, water and sugar and my ph tanked. I pulled out a ph test kit I've never used and the results of the test was a damn near blood red ...

Gentlemen, is there anyway to set up a "Mandatory" reading of safety precautions that must be applied to safe distilling, before a newbie can enter the sight?

Ok, 1st the gin. I made a gin-like substance in late August, let set till December and then threw in several 1-2 inch pieces of orange peel.
