Re: Birdwatchers sugar wash recipe

I have been throwing out 100ml foreshots on each stripping run. We have been drinking some of my older stuff since the BW didn't turn out right. This is the stuff I made when I got a T500 and followed their instructions for the wash using Turbo Pure yeast and Turbo Carbon. It is MUCH better than my ...

Re: Birdwatchers sugar wash recipe

Hey there, everyone, I've made quite a few batches of Birdwatchers following the online recipe calculator and I'm just not getting good results. When I do my cuts, I find that I have about 1/3 heads, 1/3 hearts and 1/3 tails. When I use just the hearts and dilute to 40%, it tastes comparable to a mi...

Re: Ginger Liquour

I made this today with my first ever neutral and it is fantastic! Thanks so much for the recipe. Moonshine is a trendy thing right now, at least around where I live, but most of it is undrinkable junk. With the knowledge I've gained from this site, I was able to make a good neutral (Birdwatchers) an...

Re: Turbo clear with wash

They say if you run it with the yeast still suspended, the yeast cells break apart and your spirit tastes like crap. I don't know first hand because I've never done it but, why would anybody wait for the stuff to clear if it wasn't necessary? As for the turbo clear, I use it because it clears much f...

Re: Making Essential Oils

It's hard to tell who to trust and who to ignore on the internet. Take the video that shineoncrazydiamond posted of the lady making juniper oil for example, she doesn't even know how to connect her condenser to the faucet the right way. How are we supposed to believe anything she says if she can't e...

Re: Lemon essential oil

I got a really good yield from lemons by putting the peels in a blender with water and making a puree then boiling that. 1 bag worth of lemons from Costco gave me 15ml of oil doing it this way. The more cell walls you break open, the more oil you get. The setup I have has a glass chamber that sits a...

Aloha

Hello everyone, my eyes are bleeding from all the reading! (I'm a poet and didn't know it) I'm here to learn as much as I can about distilling pure ethanol for fragrances and extracts. You can't even buy everclear here so, I set out to make my own. I have a Turbo 500 still from Still Spirits, a fast...
