    Dunder Recipe

    Going about making my first dunder mash. Have read that 20-35% of next mash should be composed of dunder. Should same ratio of molasses / gws / H2O / yeast from original mash recipe be used or does it need tweaking in some fashion? Wondering what others have found. Thank you!

    Spirit Run questions

    I am currently in the process of developing a white rum. I have previous experience producing a lighter rum on a smaller 6-plate column still, however, this time I would like to produce something with a fuller flavor. From experience and some lurking I have a general idea of how to accomplish this, I am just looking for some pointers or suggestions. So far I have ran a few stripping runs through our 240 gallon pot still and collected around 50 gallons of 90-100 proof low wines each run. We have a 50 gallon 6" column still with modular plates that I want to use for a spirit run. My current plan is to run 2 plates and reflux for an hour or so to compress the heads, make a suitable heads cut, then stop coolant flow to the dephlegmator and run the hearts more or less like a pot still. My main questions would be: What should I dilute the pot to? I was thinking ~50 proof; should I go lower? Currently I just want to focus on distillation parameters.

    100% Turbinado Rum and Nutrient?

    Typically we make our rum from Caribbean Fancy Molasses using DAP as a nutrient source, however, we recently decided to change up our recipe to Turbinado. I've seen where some people mention not having to use any nutrient with ingredients like panele but what about turbinado? Should I still use DAP as a nutrient? If so does anyone have a recommendation for dosage? Thank You Pertinent info: 1000 gallon batch, roughly 1.08 SG, 1000g yeast pitch.

    Spiced Rum

    I am wondering if I could get some advice on making spiced rum using maceration? I bought around 10 ingredients but have no idea where to start with blending them (amounts) or what proof I should be macerating at. I know some things like cinnamon and star anise can be overpowering quick and others take more time to steep. I was thinking of doing each one separately in their own mason jar and then blending the tinctures. Right now I am starting with a full bottle (750ml) of 80proof silver rum and eyeballing the ingredients. I just ordered a scale that does smaller weights since mine only goes down to 1 gram and I thought about making tea bags with small amounts so I could use less than 750ml bottle of rum. Any advice would be a great help! Thanks in advance

    Ferment-able sugars in Molasses?

    I'm prepping to start on a Rum. From my reading it seems that of the sugar content in Molasses only ~52% of it is fermentable. How should I calculate the gravity of my wash? Should I divide the sugar contribution from the molasses in half or take it as is?
  11. Hi, We are a group of guys who have been talking about starting our own Nordic craft distillery in Texas. The Burbon scene is quite mature down here and apart from a few vodka distilleries there is not a whole lot more different craft distilleries around. Myself being originally from Sweden I believe there are some great new spirits I would like to bring to the US such as Schnapps, mulled Wine and nordic style single malt whiskeys. We are currently in the very early steps to build a business case and I wanted to join here to read more about what other have done and hopefully be a part of this community. we are planning on running a wide style of products but are looking for a Islay style pot still set up with a hybrid column reroute in order to also do high end vodka based products. starting small for us is key. please feel free to recommend any equipment suppliers you guys recommend as well as TTB lawyers in the North Texas region. looking forward to learn more on here /J

    Spiced Rum....amount of each spice

    So we are looking at producing a spiced rum. If have a recipe of the spices for a five gallon batch. The question is though, do I have to scale the spices 1 for 1 up to a 200 gallon batch? So if I would use 1 vanilla bean...do I now need 40 beans? Or can you get away with smaller amounts and just steep longer? Gin basket or masceration? Thoughts?

    Slow Sugar Wash

    After forever, we are finally in production! I have 2 batches of sugar wash 'shine' (basically Rum) started. One was started on 2/25 and one was started on 3/1. Batch #1 didn't take off correctly from the start. Lesson learned about nutrients and pH... After I amended it, it finally started to pick up a little bit but has been sluggish at best. Batch #2 I doubled in size, and also juiced up with nutrients AND a much better yeast starter. It's 3/7 now and neither one is done with their ferment, they're just over half way. Unfortunately we were really planning to open this weekend but these sluggish washes are taking their sweet old time. Some specs: Batch 1 - 200 lbs sugar 100 gallons water 72g of Lavlin EC-1118 to start 250g of DAP added to the wash prior to pitching. Starting SG = 1.09 The temp has been held steady around 80 degrees. We ended up putting circulating pumps in both batches to help keep them getting oxygen. #1 fizzled so on 2/28 I added 250g Red Star Dady and some calcium carbonate to correct the pH. It picked up from there and has been making ok progress but nothing special. Batch #2 I refined my recipe a bit 350 lbs sugar 170 gallons water (to make 200 gallon batch) 5 lbs yeast nutrient blend 500 g red star dady started on a DME/nutrient blend. Starting SG = 1.08 Batch #2 is already down to 1.03, where as batch #1 is at 1.04 as of today. They've dropped about .01 SG each day at a pretty steady rate. So the question is... is this a normal ferment rate? I feel like it should be going faster . I understand sugar washes can be tricky, but we're not quite ready to go all grain yet with our equipment. Unfortunately, I already broke my pH meter, and the replacement won't be here another day or two so I can't tell if they've crashed or not. THey were both around 4.8 the last time I was able to check. Should I expect them to make it to 1.0 without adding more nutrients? They're both still fizzing away like a lazy river (when the pump isn't on). I do live in NW PA, so the place is on the cool side, but we've kept heat on the fermenters. They've both been on pump cycles to keep things rolling which definitely seemed to help. I started with the Lavlin because I hoped it would perform better at the lower temps. I switched to the dady because I knew it would be a workhorse once I was in a pinch. And finally... how big of a no no would it be to just run the damn stuff if it gets down to 1.02 or so for this round. My brain is fried. Any insights would be welcome. Thanks!

    Cleaning Molasses Stained Hoses

    We're using 2" Glidetech Butyl hoses for transferring mash/wash and over time they've become stained from the molasses washes. We use 100% molasses for our rum, and the same type of "film" or "dirt" that is left behind in the fermentation tanks is what seems to be in the hoses as well. We are able to easily clean the fermentation tanks with PBW and a brush ... but not so much the hoses. Anybody have any suggestions as to what chemicals or "pipe cleaner" of sorts that we could run through the hoses to scrub them a bit? Thanks in advance.
