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.
I realize the industry standard is to flush the effluent down the drain - with exception to those that make biogas from it. Any other uses for it? Anyone know the nutrient content of rum effluent? I realize there will be massive differences between a blackstrap wash all the way to an agricole or panela wash. thanks, NAB
Hey everyone, I've been reading and browsing, and can't seem to find any definitive guide on DAP use. We have experimented, but each time it seems we add way too little DAP (maybe out of fear of killing the yeast with too much). Does anyone have a happy medium of DAP to add that seems to kick off fermentation? Be it a pound per x amount of gallons/liters/or brix With both our blackstrap molasses and raw sugar ferments we start off around 17-19 brix, and the ferments can take upwards of 11-15 days. Thanks for any help!
