Did a few distillery tours a little while ago and got bitten by the bug, now spending way too much time reading and tinkering. Bought a 750w water distiller with a fan controller and have already run batches of sorghum syrup rum, cornflake whiskey (with enzymes, not sugar), rye whiskey (same), and have more than a few things fermenting. Enjoying starting small to tinker with the process and recipes, but slowly putting things together for a typical keg boiler pot still with a Liebig condenser. Mostly interested in things with flavor, not neutrals, so sticking to pot stilling for now, but keeping things modular for future options.

Especially interested in (for now): simultaneous saccharification/fermentation with things like Koji/Angel Yeast, sorghum based alcohols, steam injected boilers.

I really appreciate all the information this community so freely shares. Thank you!
