I have followed this thread since the beginning. I know that there have been many changes along the way. I have read that...."I tried this....I added this..." etc. Could I ask you to summize the (your) "final " recipe for the All Bran...sort of the best of the best? Thanks!
Scale up in linear fashion...
Per Gallon (4 Liters) of 14.1% ABV wash
* 4 cups sugar (1000 ml, 2 pounds, 1 kilo)
* 1 cup whole All Bran flakes (250 ml)
* 1/2 teaspoon boiled yeast component
* 1/2 teaspoon 20-20-20 fertilizer (substitute 1/4 teaspoon epsom salt if afraid of fertilizer)
* 2 tablespoons yeast (Fleischmann's dry active yeast works fine up to 14.1% with this recipe)
* Invert sugar with an equal volume of water for 30 minutes
* Simmer cereal with double the volume of water for 30 minutes
* Mix the invert sugar, cereal, and boiled yeast component
* Top off fermenter and allow wash to cool to 95F
* Pitch yeast and 20-20-20 and aerate for 1 minute (additional aeration optional)
* This process yields a fully fermented and cleared wash within 72 hours at 78F/26C
* The wash can be pot stilled for flavor or refluxed for clean neutral spirit
* Not using 20-20-20 or boiled yeast will increase lag time and extend fermentation time
* Full krausen within 15 minutes is not uncommon
* %ABV options by volume (Cups per Gallon) are: 4C/G = 14.1%, 3.5C/G = 12.3%, 3C/G = 10.6%
* Adding more cereal will potentially impart more flavor (experiment with more or less)
That's all... It's just that simple...
