Re: New oak barrel

Not necessarily corn just something you don't mind getting over powered by the new Oak. To me corn has little flavour so perfect for breaking a barrel in.
Corn wheat and barley would make a lovely bourbon, go with that if it's what you got. Add some oats as well for something a bit different.

Imo new Oak overpower the lovely maltiness. Do a straight corn at least once if you want to retain the flavour of the malt.

Re: Rye Vodka Recipe?

Rye vodka is a bit counter intuitive. Rye has loads of flavour, like loads. Vodka is meant to have very little flavour. sure you can make vodka from rye, but it will prob take a bit more work, ( one or more extra passes through the still). If you have access to free rye, go for it, else I'd just mak...

You can make a light Tullamore dew esk spirit on a single run with a plater.

If you're after something more like red breast you'll likely need a pot still and many hours at it.
