I didn't go with the feeding plan this time,...
Just got a sack of panela from LWTS, so I'm doing up a batch of 100% panela right now.
I've always done the Buccaneer Bob protocol, more or less, so I've always done scheduled feedings with my rums.
I just did a 100% blackstrap molasses run and it turned out great.
With this panel batch, I started with 25# of panela in 20 gallons of water, OG about 1.055. So easy with this ground up panela!
Every 2 days I'm going to add 5# panela mixed with 2 gallons of water, eventually ending up with 50# panela in 30 gallons water.
This should result in an easy stress free ferment.
My plan is to strip this with wash in boiler and thumper, then do a single pot still run with the low wines.
I've done all of my rums white, but most if this will be put on oak for long term aging. Of course, some will be kept white for easy immediate drinking!
