Re: The liar's bench

I had to come share this one here with y'all. It's a rare occasion that I over indulge. Well, they lifted some restrictions here and I was able to visit a friend I hadn't seen in awhile. I brought over some of my beverages, and had a full pint to myself. I maybe have one drink a week nowadays so I'm...

Re: Booner's Casual All Corn

So if I used just cracked or crushed, can I just rack the wash off the corn after it ferments and settles out? I do have a number of fine mesh paint strainer bags I use for pressing cider. Cracked corn will work ok. Look up Big R's step mashing method (pretty sure it was him, been awhile since i vi...

Nice looking build there.

Re: Triple distilling

I've always done hookrum. Single run strip runs until I have 5-6 gallons low wines. Then one spirit run with that plus 5 gallons fresh wash. It comes off strong with the molasses flavor, but really mellows out with some time on oak.
