    In reply to: kwood78 posted an update in the group Mash Recipes I got a mash I made this past Sunday out of sweetfeed I started it at a 14% yield with yeast from the grocery store , it has stalled out at 8% right now . Should I add more or just keep letting it go to see what happens? The mash is at about 98 degrees so I know it\'s not the cold View

    Most yeast will produce “off flavours” at that high of temperature and from my experience I only get 8- 10% abv from bakers yeast before it really slow down with all grain mashes. Just my experience. White Labs yeast says to ferment at 90 degrees if on the grain and 72-75 degrees if the grain is removed before fermentation .

    6 hours of mashing, I found like distilling mashing is better done really slowly through all the temp ranges. It also mean pots that are easier to clean because nothing burns to the bottom when using propane as a heat source.

    In reply to: canadian-rye posted an update in the group Mash Recipes Do you guys/gals prefer corn flour corn meal or a cracked corn? Trying corn meal for now but would appreciate any advice. View

    The finer the grind of the grain the more of the starch is easily available to the enzymes thus you get better conversion to sugar is less time so I was asking more in that sense.

    Tried a double boiler thing to not burn the corn meal. It worked but need a bigger pots because the corn gets way to thick around 150 degrees. 5.5 lb of corn meal and whatever water would fit and allow storing, added 1 LB of malted barley and 6lb of sugar. I decided to open ferment on the grain.

    I am guessing that 1 pound of corn meal is equal to 1 pound of crack corn.

    • it should be about the same. I have never used meal but I don’t know why it would be different

    I am just curious of the og and fg as I am wondering if all the sugars are being converted, I am not a numbers math kinda guy I have friends for that lol, the yeast starter or the extra bag pitched in should help them finish sooner.

    • honestly I didn’t do a og or fg on the sweetfeed cause ive done it several times and it always has a fg of 0.980 and it tasted real bitter. but this recipie is new ill be doing a og and fg ill keep ya posted.

    I think you may need to make a yeast starter or pitch 2 pack to insure attenuation of all that sugar before the yeast hit their upper abv limit. I would guess you are aiming at having a 10gal ferment?

    • I just finished up a 12 gal ferment of sweetfeed using 24 lbs of brown sugar and 12lbs of feed using 1 pack of whiskey pure AG it took 14 days to finish but it handled the sugar fine got about 13% abv but 2 packs cant hurt to be safe. thxs for advice.

    In reply to: beetleboone posted an update in the group Mash Recipes I\'m looking for a good single malt recipe; anybody got one to share? View

    A single malt generally refers to a grain bill of straight malted barley generally distillers malt or a 2 or 6 row malteded barley. Thus the single malt. The trick is to get a used barrel usually bourbon or a med toasted new barrel unless you like the oak flavour. You can make your own used barrel by just adding a whiskey to one of those small…[Read more]

    All grain mash myself, but I have added sugar as well but not recently. Just like seeing how the flavor changes with a recipe change.

    • I’m an all grainer myself. I like the taste of a good all grain recipe awhole lot better than just a nuteral vodka type spirit. I will use a sugar wash for my apple pie whiskey recipe or when I’m making gin though.

    Very pleased with the out come of this mash recipe. The only thing I would change is not to rush the mashing process even with the added enzymes. This maybe my best recipe, made pretty good cuts this time as well :). I may have to start taking a sg and a fg so I can guess the abv but that takes all the surprise away lol.
