Me too, I'm always looking into ways for better :thumbup:

As for now the bread yeast has been top class and with different experiments with temps after fermentation and the use of dunder in low wines I've come up with a special rum I can't believe I've made myself.

I'm always interested in ways to better any of my product especially my rum and I still (hopefully) have many more years to play with this wonderful hobby.

Good luck and looking forward to seeing the results,

We made another wash the other day using the RM yeast. We used 7 gallons of backset from stripping run into 50 gallons of wash (we forgot the water was on).
Trying to keep detailed notes,The backset had a PH of 4.23 and overall wash had a PH of 5.1 The PH seems a little low to start, but we'll see where it finishes and if necessary,
bring it up next time with calcium hydroxide (pickling lime).

5.1 isn't bad at all, if you can have it ferment out quickly it shouldn't drop too low in a short time.
I've only had issues in the winter with slower ferments and ph dropping below 4 but pickling lime is the bees knees for a quick fix on low ph issues.

Have you a set amount for raising ph? Say per gal or 25g or 50 g?
