Honey Wheat Whiskey

Postby Rocodog » Tue Jan 02, 2018 1:53 pm

First off, thank you Jimbo. If not for your Single Malt recipe my AG attempts and this recipe would not exist.

For a 5 gal wash.

8lbs Red Wheat Malt
2lbs 6 Row
1lb Gambrinus Honey Malt

SG is 1.075 - 1.079 depending on my patience and procedures. i take my stripping runs all the way down to ~5%. The hearts cut on the stripping run is real sweet. I almost want to put it on waffles. After a good spirit run and some careful cuts it is pretty tasty. Or you can be a bit more lenient with your cuts if you are going to oak it. It improves greatly on oak.

Mash Procedure follows Jimbo's Single Malt in T&T Recipes. I have tried this with both White Wheat and German Wheat. IMO the red wheat gives a slightly smoother body. The Honey Malt adds a sweetness right up front that compliments the red wheat nicely.

SCD, you are the other guy whose Procedures I follow. Your Honey Bear Bourbon recipe is how I handle all of my recipes that use adjunct grains. It also introduced me to the joys of honey malt and helped me start playing with all kinds of specialty grains. I have a Rye with a touch of chocolate rye in it doing some really crazy stuff on oak right now.
