Gin and a couple of mashes

Many like to post about a first successful ferment (or first all grain mash), or first still built/bought or first good run of the still. Tell us about all of these great times here.

Gin and a couple of mashes

Post by Lights Out »

Been a wee whike since I signed up, but this week I finally got onto some grain mashes specifically for distilling rather than beer.

1 mash of 6kg pale malt and 1 kg malted oats which will be turned into my first whisky

1 mash of 1kg HDP malt and 5kg of wheat malt which will be turned into neutral(ish) to chrck for differences in flavour/mouthfeel against TPW neutral.

And right this minute I have some of my TPW neutral which was macerated with Juniper, coriander, angelica and orange peel for 24 hours coming over the pot still.

A week of progress for me [emoji3]
