    • Hi I’m Bill, a rookie distiller. Starting to get my chops down using oak barrels to finish my clear. This hobby it getting to get interesting.
      Quick question for anyone, Should I stir or not stir my mash while fermenting?

      • I have never aerate a wash.. but I do however stir it really well when I start it to get plenty of oxygen in the water.

    • some people will tell you yes and some people will tell you no. I don’t because I don’t want to aerate my wash because I was always told air makes yeast produce chemicals other than ethanol. The next guy might swear by the opposite though
