    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

    Thank you cookie. What water do you use in a simple sugar shine. ?? Is distilled water ok to use. ??

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