First thing I ran through the still was an old cider that had gone too dry, came out a lovely liquor

I’ve stopped using powdered Gypsum (dolomite) in my Wineo’s Plain Old Sugar Wash. I just collect my eggshells, then dry them in an oven and powder them down in a blender. Seems to work a treat!

Hi I use this wash a lot very easy. My question is can I put some corn meal in it for flavor? If so how much would you use? Or is there something else that could be added for flavor?

Hi I Made a batch of this wash and it is still bubbling slow through my airlock. It’s been about three weeks. Should I let it go until it stops completely. I didn’t check the sg since it’s been running. I’ve made this several times but I don’t think I let it keep going this long. If it’s still bubbling a little is it still making alcohol?

Check the gravity. Otherwise you won't know if that residual activity is yeast working, offgassing, or some bacteria eating your alcohol.

Having said that, as the weather gets colder, you'll notice longer fermentation times. I usually switch to an ale yeast when the house is cooler. US-05 or Nottingham both like cool temperatures.

I'm also experiencing the same problem. I'm using Wineos method since last six months successfully, but my fermentation is getting delayed in this winter season. Since I don't have a choice of varieties in yeast available here and I use only bakers yeast, can I compensate this with increased quantity of yeast per wash to speed up the fermentation?
