Re: Propionic acid

Glad to hear your corn is working. I have three electric stills, so heating water is easy and quick. I plan to heat some water to near boiling, put the corn in my beer making mash tun, and pour the hot water on the corn. Then I'll hook a hose up to the still and to the bottom of the mash tun, let st...

Re: Propionic acid

Jimbo, I'm going to be watching this close. I bought a bag of cracked corn this morning, the label was clean so I don't think it had any funky stuff on it. I'm going to cook 15 lbs of this corn, and add 5 lbs of malted barley.
Keep your post updated so I can tell how you did.

Re: Propionic acid

Well, a little more research showed me this. At our Tractor Supply store, their cracked corn lists propionic acid clearly on the label, and at our Bomgaad Store their cracked corn doesn't list it. We are in the heart of corn country, WTF. Anyway I guess one just has to look at the label, and shop ar...

Re: Propionic acid

Guys, I looked at a bag of cracked corn this morning at the local farm store and I didn't see anything about propionic acid on the label. Actually all it said was the protein content. Where on the bag are you seeing propionic acid. Maybe the corn in my store is OK. Husker you look at Bomgaards ??? T...

Artisan Spirit Magazine Article

The winter issue of Artisan Spirit magazine has a two page article about the increase in home distillers. They are stating that Missouri has just passed a law allowing the home distiller to poduce 200 gallons per year, although it would still be a federal offense. If this is true it's certainlly the...

Re: Some legal math

A very common practice to buy whiskey or ethenol, and blend it at a small distillery. Most of the small distillerys can not afford to produce a product as cheap as the large companyies do, so the practice of buying in bulk, blending, and bottling it under your own label is very wide spread.
