Rum Yeasts

Postby frost021 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:51 pm

Well I decided to break down and do some comparisons on a few yeasts.might take a while to give final reviews ..I've been using fleischmann's for quit a few years now, but recently acquired some white star products and distila max products.
I Havn't tried the distala product yet as I want to get a few generations of the WS product before I make final judgements but coming off the 4 plate flute into the hearts is great wanting to dive in and pour one, but I know better lol ...coming into the tails in off the still had great fruity aroma's and taste and cut it off at 55% probably could have gone deeper into the tails but ...I know my still on gauging temps on deflag and boiler and abv/proof in the parrot I blend all in one shot as and smell and taste when needed as I use old ways incorporated with the new ways ...amount of product is the same but taste and aroma is much better ..now to wait and age and get the next gen of dunder...for batch 3 ...I don't think I'll be going back to fleischmann's if but only time will tell

What white star? I hadn't seem them before sounds great!

I assume this is the dm you've got on deck?

Edit to add, browsed around white star some more, and holy hell those rum strains sound amazing! I filled my cart just to see, and it looks like I want $200 worth of test to play with now :( I don't think I have $200 in my yeast bank!

Lol, neither do I!

Would be nice to play with some yeast but for now I'll keep concentrating with high esters from muck pits. lol

I find bakers yeast pretty well conditioned to work with molasses. As for esters letting the ferment run hot and fast with give you very typical rum flavours.

That's the yeast I use and love it in rum and AG, just not my brandies and meads.

I think most commercial yeasts are grown in molasses. Bread, beer, wine, nutritional. Just hiw the pros roll. At least so I've heard. I wouldn't use that necessarily as an indication it's good for rum. Although, most any yeast is probably at least ok for rum, maybe FOR that reason?
