Too sweet wash


Recommended Posts

I'm a little concerned that in my latest wash I put in too much sugar, so although the gravity is down below zero it still tastes sweet and it has stopped fermenting. It's the first time this has happened to me and I am wondering if this will make the vodka over sweet? I will be doing three stripping runs before putting it all into the vodka run. I'll then be distilling it again for gin - should I be worried?

NAH, If you truly worried then take a sample of about 3/4 gallon and put it in to a 1 gallon glass jug and top it off with water, check the ph and temp, and degas the sample and if it starts fermentation again then thin your wash down. I understand it showed 0% but the alc. might throw that off.



take care
