    In reply to: joe-v posted an update Would like some feedback on making 5 gal. Of flaked corn maize and sugar. I have 6 lbs. flaked maize and 6 lbs sugar. Would this be sufficient for 5 gal. Mash. Also do I need to cook the maize in with my heated sugar water. I also have amylase and a 8.6 ounce package of 48 hr. Turbo yeast. If someone could give me a step by step instructions on makeing my mash with the above ingredients it would be greatly appreciated. I have a 5 gal. Copper still pot and condenser no thumper inbetween. I\'m new to this and need good advice and help learning. Thanx I also have 6 1/2 gal. Ferment bucket and air lock View

    only use distilled water for cutting proof after distilling. I use a RV filter on my water hose to purify my water for mashing.

    In reply to: puddy posted an update I\'m a first time shine maker-- I guess I should say, I\'m going to try to make some shine. I\'v read so many recipes that I\'m lost, there all in METRIC, Dam metric. Any body out there have a good simple first timer recipe in plain standard math? I have all grain sweet feed and scratch corn as my fermentation. And Turbo yeast. I have a reflux or pot still I am going to use so I can have some flavor in it. View

    In reply to: stevenstills posted an update in the group Mash Recipes Need help. Ran mash bill of 10 gallons water,10# corn,5# wheat,2# rye,5# barley,5#sugar. I added 2 more gallons water. I fermented with the grain but it swelled so much it absorbed most of the liquid. Should I reduce the grain bill or sparse the grain and ferment just the liquid. View

    I believe your grain bill is to high. Corn is about right or maybe 9 lbs. I would say Wheat 1.5 lbs, Rye 1 lb, Barley 1 3/4 lbs and Sugar 8 – 10 lbs.

    I make a 6 gallon mash. I heat 3 gallons of water up to almost boiling and turn off heat.. I then add the corn and let it cook for about 20 minutes. I add the barley or rye at 155 degrees F. I then let in set about 90 minutes stirring occasionally. I add about another 2 gallons of water to get the temp around 104 degrees F and then add sugar. I…[Read more]

    In reply to: peter99 posted an update in the group Mash Recipes I have been running 7.5 lb corn 2.5 lb rhy 2.5 lb barley and 9 lb sugar for a six gal still. I had beed getting 5 pints 110 proof after cutting the first and last half pint. I just ran the same but with 12 lb sugar and got 5 pints 130 proof but the flavor is not near as good may have to go back to nine pounds sugar after I run enough to fill the smile barrel I bought View

    I feel that 12 lbs of sugar is way to much. I would be using 8 lbs.
