Re: Oaking and aging the T-Pee way

I really am in no way qualified to give advice here but thought I'd just share my experience. I did a sweet feed run and went to a local wood craft shop and bought a 1/2" dowel rod of white oak. I cut it in 3 5" lengths, baked at 400 for 15 min or just till the aromas started to fill the kitchen wra...

Re: sweetfeed whisky

Yes sir. This is basically an experiment to see if I can make this already wonderful drop just a tad smoother by not using sugar. The original recipe is honestly fantastic. It is my favorite white sipper, but there is still a sharpness from the sugarhead. I'm hoping corn for the engine rounds the e...

Re: sweetfeed whisky

My first run turned out pretty good. I didn't stray from the recipe except the type of sugar. I got a 1.069 OG and .996 finish. I must say it was messy as hell not using any type of separation with the feed in the bucket. I just started my second mash and rinsed the feed and put it in cheese cloth. ...

Re: Running like a freight train

This finished with a .996 SG @ 1.5 weeks. I made my first cut at 150 mL and kept the next 325ML that I cut 3 times but ended up mixing it together at 150 proof. the last 110 ML got dirty so I shut it down. I never really felt a difference in the texture while making cuts but the smell cleaned up whe...

Running like a freight train

Well this is only my 2nd mash and I've got a little reading to do but holy shite. My first was just sugar and water and Red Star DADDY yeast that peculated like a slow Coffey maker. That was my sacrificial run. Now I have tried the Sweet feed Whiskey mash T&T recipe and its running like a freight tr...

Re: Just Post a Pick of your Rig

Just completed a 'stripping' run through my new worm. I filled the 235 L oak barrel with 50 F water and ran 15 gallons of molasses (rum) wash through it, boiler-thumper-worm. Without ever changing out or circulating additional water, the distillate came out at a steady 50-51 F. Quite a change from ...

Just a thought. Raise the fermenter off the floor, so the bottom can get some warmth :wink:

Lol you might be right but I'm already producing a constant temp to utilize. If I didn't need the humidifier I probably would have.
